Lent originally means “spring”. Very noticeable around the Parish not just in the gardens and flowers but also in the buzz of busyness.
On Saturday there was a gathering in the Parish Centre of those who have participated in the Camino, they shared experiences and reflections.
On Sunday we had the DTIM mass at 10.00 with the participation of the Children who will make their first Holy communion this year.
At 11.00 we had the visit of Sister Helena O Donaghue who helped to put the term “Mercy” in context.
At the 12.45 Mass the ECO candle was lit to remind us that Global Climate Justice can now be considered an important dimension of Christian life. The Candle has now been moved to another parish to spread the message.
The Parish centre has been a hub of activity all week with Cake sales and raffles to pay for the defibrillator, teas and cakes to celebrate 50th wedding anniversaries, hospitality, bingos and bridge, pilates and language classes, Irish dancing, confirmation club and counselling … to name a few … phew.
