Harvest Thanksgiving Mass 2019
The annual mass of  Harvest Thanksgiving will be held in Lacken Church on Sat Oct 26th @ 7.30pm. Harvest Thanksgiving is a very old tradition – especially within farming communities. It is appropriate that all peoples (connected to farming or otherwise) give thanks to God for the fruits of the earth and to ask His continued blessing on the land and all it yields. Parishioners are very welcome, and are encouraged, to donate produce of the earth for this Ceremony of Thanksgiving and Blessing. The following are examples of what might be considered for donation: bread, cakes, vegetables, fruit, jam, chutney, honey,  potatoes, eggs.  In addition, we would welcome autumn flowers or berries to decorate the church. All donated produce will be for sale after Mass on the Sat  evening. All proceeds will go towards the Church maintenance fund and  improvements to the grounds of Lacken Church.
 
There will be a special prayer of blessing for our farming community and for all who work in our parish.
