Bishop comes for Mass and tea to Lackanashinnagh Station

The last household in our parish hosting an Autumn Station Mass this year made a little bit of history when Bishop Fintan Gavin, Bishop of Cork and Ross, made his first visit to our parish and celebrated the Station Mass at the home of John Joe and Kathleen Crowley, Lackanashinnagh, Enniskeane, with their neighbours and extended family.

It was Bishop Gavin’s first time being at a Station Mass and probably the first time that a Bishop celebrated a Station Mass in our parish!

At the Station Mass at the home of John Joe and Kathleen Crowley, Lackanashinnagh, are the extended Crowley Family with Bishop Fintan Gavin who was the Principal Celebrant of the Mass and Fr Tom Hayes, PP, Enniskeane.
