St. John's Parish Bazaar will take place from Friday – Sunday, December 1st – 3rd at K.D.Y.S. Hall, Denny Street. If you have any empty hamper baskets which you do not need, they would be really appreciated and can be handed into Parish Centre. Good quality bric-a-brac, games, toys, etc would also be much appreciated. There will not be a book stall this year. We would also be delighted to receive good quality furniture for auction. Please contact the Parish Centre.
It is with great sadness we announce the death of Fr. Pat O’Sullivan of Ballymacelligott and a great friend and servant to St. John's Parish.
May he rest in peace
The new Window of Reconciliation in St. John’s Church was blessed on Friday October 27th at 7.30pm. This window, executed by Thomas Denny is the first stained glass window to be commissioned for St. John’s Church in sixty years. Each of the three panels are evocative of the landscape and history of Tralee. This time-lapse video courtesy of Eamonn Campbell shows the installation of the window.

Try to work hard in the Lord's name. Be a voice of hope in the darkness for those in trouble or strife. Try to be an advocate for the sick, the poor, or those who have been hurt by the cruelty of life. Be kind when you can. Show compassion when it would be easier to be harsh and judgmental. Reach out when it would be simpler and less challenging to walk away and leave the mess for someone else to deal with. Be that beacon of light and hope in a world that can oftentimes lack direction or meaning........Margaret Theresa Naughton
