We are just heading into the 4th week of Lent. Fulfilling the Programme for the Year of Mercy we had the Anointing of the Sick at 12.45 Mass on Sunday. Many people came forward to receive the sacrament from one of the four priests.
On Thursday we had Trocaire Thursday with prayer around the Stations of the Cross and a sharing of soup and bread. 177 Euros was donated for Trocaire.
The Raffle of Eastery things in aid of the Defibrillator has been on going over the week and there seems to be a great interest in getting that Defib paid for … and winning a load of chocolates.
You will have noticed a lot of children around the Church during the week. They are getting ready for their first confession on Wednesday; the schools are so good at preparing the children for the sacraments. For the first time a team of parents from the Educate Together school are having their children prepared in the Parish.
