Nine days of Masses are offered each year from Nov 2nd — 10th for our people who have died. It’s known as the Novena for the Holy Souls. (A Novena is something that takes place across nine days.)
This year, due to Covid19 restrictions, the Masses will be offered without a congregation in church. However, people can join in prayer online as the Masses will be live streamed from Enniskeane Church.
Masses will be offered from Nov 2nd on Mon – Sat each day at 7.30pm.
On Sunday 8th at 12 noon, the Mass will be especially for the people whose funerals have taken place in our parish in the past 12 months.
There are a number of ways people can enrol their loved ones in the Novena:
Drop off your envelope at either Ahiohill, Castletown or Enniskeane Church on Sunday Nov 1st between 3–5pm where members of the Parish Assembly will be receiving them and will bring them back to Enniskeane.
Write out the names on a piece of paper and drop it back in an envelope to the Parochial House or post it to Parochial House, Enniskeane, Co Cork (The list will be placed at the altar for the Masses).
Email the list of names to this special email address: firstname.lastname@example.org (The list will be printed by the Parish Office and placed at the altar for the Masses).
Use the Parish ‘Donate’ button below where you can type in the names and make an offering for the Novena.
