Holy Trinity Church, Ratoath24 May 2009
Opening hours for the Parish Office: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday from 9.30am– 4.00pm
Statement by Bishop Smith following the Ryan Report Following the publication of the Commission's Report yesterday, we come face to face again with the betrayal of trust and the wounding of many. Healing these wounds must continue to be at the heart of the mission of the Church. Nothing can ever make up for the terrible wrongs that have been done. The best tribute we can offer to those who have suffered in childhood and shared their painful memories with the Commission is that we make every possible effort to ensure that no other child should suffer as they did. It is important to have established the truth of what happened in the past and to bring healing to the victims and to all those affected by these crimes. Ratoath Parish Youth Team will meet upstairs in the Parish centre on Monday evening at 7.30pm all welcome.
Ratoath Garden Club: Monday 25th May. Bus will leave for Tullys Nurseries, The Naul from the cemetery gates at 6.30pm.
