PPA- The Parish Pastoral Assembly strives to enhance parishioners' connection with their parish and help to build a vibrant spiritual community in our parish. How can this connection with parish be fostered ? Perhaps you would like to be involved by joining our Adoration team, joining our Parish Choir, looking after the flowers in either of our churches for one month, becoming a Minister of the Word or a Minister of the Eucharist, giving out the Rosary before Mass in May or October....is there something else you are interested in helping set up or run in the Parish ? We would love to hear from you at oristownkilberryparishassembly@gmail.com
