Request for Accommodation Dear Parishioner, My name is Alexander Ranzetta. I am a 19 year old Roman Catholic undergraduate student from East Anglia in the UK. My parish is the Augustinian Priory at Clare, Clare Suffolk. I am currently studying Hospitality Management at Oxford Brookes University and have been offered an internship at the City West Hotel in Dublin for one year. I have been looking for suitable accommodation for up to a year near the hotel. I am due to start mid July and so far have been unsuccessful in finding somewhere to live. I will be working different hours according to my shifts at the hotel. I am 6 feet 6 inches tall so would need a double bed if possible, access to a bathroom or en suite facilities and a kitchen to share. I can afford to pay up to about 650-750 Euros per month which needs to include bills. As I don't drive I need to be about 20 minutes walk or bike ride away from the hotel. I like dogs, am friendly and sociable. My Parish priest Fr Ian at Clare suggested I write to the Catholic Parish nearest to the hotel. If somebody could offer me accommodation if only for a few months that would be fantastic. Fr. Gilligan has further details about me. I look forward to hearing from you. Kind Regards, Alex Rosary Walk - Monday 26th June 3.00pm Rathcoole Church to Saggart Church All are welcome to join in a Rosary Walk, which will be led by Fr. Aidan Kieran on Monday 26th June at 3.00pm. Meet at Rathcoole Church at 3.00pm, and we will walk to Saggart Church via Rathcoole Park. On the way, we will pray two sets of mysteries of the Rosary. When we arrive at Saggart Church, we will pray the Glorious Mysteries. Hopefully, we will finish with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. We will pray for the intentions of everyone in the parish. Jot it down in the diary. Put on comfy shoes, grab your rosary beads and come and join us!
