Next year will mark the Bi-Centenary of the Church of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Shanbally. As part of our preparations a new floor will be laid in the Church on the week starting Monday 12th November 2018. Due to the works being undertaken that week the Church will be closed and unavailable from Monday 12th to Saturday 17th November.  The contractor has assured us that the works will be completed in time for Sunday Mass on Sunday 18th November.  

To lay the new flooring requires that all the Church benches be removed for the duration of the works.  We are looking for volunteers who would be willing to help us for a couple of hours at 2.00 p.m. next Sunday afternoon, 11th November 2018, to remove the benches and store than locally and again on Saturday afternoon, 17th November, to return the benches to the Church.  If you are willing to help us please text or phone Fr Sean at 087-2151894.  Your help would be greatly appreciated.                                                  Fr Seán
