Remembrance Mass – Rathcooney Cemetery, Tuesday 4th July 2017

July 5, 2017

On Tuesday, 4th July 2017, the annual remembrance mass was celebrated at Rathcooney Cemetery by Fr. John Newman. The altar is placed in front of the large cross in the middle of the newer section of the graveyard. The sound system ensures the mass can be heard throughout this graveyard and also in the section across the road.  It allows people to hear mass while remaining at family graves.

The altar was placed in front of the large cross in the middle of the newer section of the graveyard. The sound system ensured the mass could be heard throughout this section of the graveyard and in the section across the road – allowing people to hear mass while remaining at family graves.

The mass at Rathcooney is a wonderfully commemorative mass which remembers and celebrates the lives of our loved ones buried at Rathcooney and in other cemeteries.  A choir accompanied by a guitar added to the very prayerful atmosphere.

As part of the mass, Fr Newman blessed the graveyard and the large congregation present.

Thanks to the County Council, the organising committee, Finbarr for the sound, the altar society, the altar servers, the readers, choir, cantor, ministers of the Eucharist, Fr Newman and the many other people who helped make this annual mass successful.
