We will shortly welcome Emma Livingstone to the parish to work with us as a youth minister for a year. Emma is a native of South Carolina (beside Mepkin Abbey) Please pray for a fruitful ministry for her.
Thanks to all who bought the candles for Ukraine (beautifully made by Sr Mary Gabrielle from St Alphonsus Monastery, Iona Road.)
We collected €775.00 and the money will be sent to
the meditators there are deeply involved in humanitarian aid.
In light of feedback (positive or negative) on the recent announcement on Eulogies,
the liturgy group has decided after a lengthy discussion, that if a family wishes to have a short Eulogy that it may take place at the end of Mass.
The Church is now opened most of the day for private prayer.
