The Church Choir
The church choir and organ music has always been an integral part of the 12.00pm Mass, the Christmas Masses, and the religious ceremonies held in the church throughout the year. In recent years the senior choir takes part in Saturday evening Mass, while the folk choir takes part in the 12.00pm Sunday Mass. Much justifiable praise has been bestowed on the church choir. Perhaps the importance and value of the choir is best illustrated by the awarding of the Bene Merenti medal, on 16th July 1968, to Peter MacCarney Snr., for his services to the church. He had been conductor of Clones church choir for some thirty years.
The choir is now under the musical direction of Emily McMeel who started working with the choir in February 2015. The Senior Choir has 27 members at present who rehearse weekly on Thursdays from 8 – 9pm.

St Joseph’s Young Priests’ Society
St Joseph’s Young Priests’ was founded over 100 yrs ago to help fund the education of young Irish students who were studying for the priesthood. The society has given many young men from impoverished homes who had a vocation, the opportunity to do God’s work. The society also assists overseas students. In 2007, for example 201 Irish & 690 overseas students received assistance of nearly 2 million euro. Due to an extreme shortage of priests and the recession in Ireland the society’s work is still of great value. The Clones branch meet on the last Tues of each month and collect an annual subscription of €10 from many people in the parish. A member of the branch will call with you over the coming months. All who pay become members of the society. Please pray forvocations. If interested in joining our branch, contact Larry Butler 086 8342312.
