Dear Parishioners of St Agnes’

I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to each and everyone of you. Thanks first, for your kindness and friendly welcome and support over these past few months. Thanks secondly, for all your prayers and lastly for everything that you have taught me, which I would say is much more than you probably realise. I also wish to thank the many groups that I have had the privilege to work with, none more so than the Children’s Liturgy. Can I ask just one small favour, that every so often when you remember, would you say a wee prayer for me, and please be assured of my continued prayer for you all. In the mean time , I wish you all a very Happy and Blessed Easter 2016, for “ He has Risen Alleluia Alleluia”

God Bless  Tony McAleese
