Blessing of the Graves - July 2020
Each year, on the second Saturday of July, Newtown & Killea Parish celebrate the blessing of the graves. However, this year Covid-19 has rendered our celebration of the ceremony impossible. So, we are uploading a short video of the blessing of graves which took place on Wednesday evening, 8th July.
At our weekend Masses, which many of you will join by webcam, we also will be having a blessing ceremony and holy water bottles will be available in the porches of both churches for those who wish to bless their own family graves this year.
We thank Jim McLaughlin and Tommy McCutcheon for keeping the graveyard up to their usual high standards. We also thank you all for the beautiful way you tend to your own family graves over the year.
