A little bit of History.
The brass type Chalice we have used in the Church ( but presently only used by Fr. Mac Entee, because of the virus emergency. Fr. Dolan uses the silver one presented in remembrance of Fr Breen) is actually one presented to the Parish in 1975 having a bit of history attached. The Chalice and Paten were the property of Fr. James Doran of Amesbury , Massachusetts, the son of Rose (Mc Cusker) Doran who was born in Corbally. After Fr. Doran’s death it was used by Fr. Joseph Hyde of Lowell Massachusetts also a Mc Cusker descendant. It was presented to the Parish by Anna ( Mc Cusker) Mc Nulty, Longhill In memory of deceased members. About the time of the 1847 famine there were two curates in Dromore. One of them preached the necessity of emigration and many hundreds left. They formed a Dromore colony in Lowell, Massachusetts.

Many thanks to all those who helped with First Holy Communion last Saturday. In particular, thanks to the children’s’ teachers and parents who prepared them for their big day. Many thanks to Alice, Fergal and Stephen who provided the music and singing on the day and indeed previously on Confirmation day. We are very grateful.
Please return Pyx for Holy Communion if not in use as we have none now left to give to people.
