Parish Prayer Ministry – April 2019
Saturday, March 30th 2019

‘A praying parish is a growing parish ; a growing parish is a praying parish .‘ Please join us in praying for the following intentions this month.

We continue to pray for our country during this time of uncertainty over Brexit.  We ask the Holy Spirit to bestow His gifts of wisdom and right judgement on all with responsibility for government in these two islands.

We pray for ourselves and those to be received into the church this year that we may prepare to celebrate worthily the Feast of Easter.  We ask Jesus to strengthen and console those persecuted Christians who cannot celebrate with us.

With Pope Francis we pray for doctors and their humanitarian collaborators in war zones who risk their lives to save the lives of others.

We pray for those enslaved, trafficked and abused that the precious Blood of Jesus may set them free.

We pray for a greater appreciation of the reverence due to Jesus expressed in the way in which we acknowledge His Presence in the tabernacle.  We ask for the gift of silence to enable us to listen as He speaks to our hearts.

Thank You for hearing our prayers. Amen.

Our Father, Hail Mary , Gloria.

In Grateful Appreciation!
Sunday, March 24th 2019

This weekend the parish paid tribute to a long-serving member of our parish.  Martin Moore takes a step back from parish life as a Minister of Holy Communion, Collector, Counter and Sacristan for many years.  We are indebted to him for his selfless dedication, deep faith, and steadfast commitment to his parish during those years.  His commitment to parish life is an inspiration and we pray the Lord will reward him for his service and loyalty to the Gospel.

RCIA – Rite of Election
Monday, March 11th 2019

This weekend, the First Sunday of Lent, our Catechumens and their Godparents joined Bishop Tom in Mullingar as they celebrate The Rite of Election where their names are enrolled in the ‘Book of the Elect’.  They will celebrate the remaining ‘scrutinies’ associated with the RCIA at Sunday Masses during Lent.  We would like to express our thanks to our catechists who support, instruct and encourage them during their time of prayer, preparation and reflection.  We invite parishioners to support our Catechumens (now known as ‘The Elect’) preparing to be received into the Church on Holy Saturday night through the Sacraments of Baptism, First Eucharist and Confirmation.
