Cemetery Sunday

The last of the cemetery Sunday celebrations took place in Carrickedmond cemetery recently. As the day was very wet, the mass took place in the church and the blessing of graves took place afterwards in the cemetery. Over the past four weeks cemetery Sunday mass and blessing of graves took place in all cemeteries in the parish. Great credit must go to all plot holders who all had their plots and the graveyards in looking so well.
