Next grass cutting in Wed 16th from 6.30pm.

We appeal for support in this work. It is important that the place of internment of our family dead is well-kept.



A meeting will be held in Duhig House on Monday  (14th May) at 8pm.



‘This is my commandment: Love one another as I have loved you.’

A commandment of love is something of a contradiction in terms. Love is a free choice. That is what gives the thrill to the experience of being loved. Often love and friendship make demands on us. Parents give freely of their time and energy to the care of their children and sometimes it requires a lot of effort. Also in responding to the needs of friends or spouses we can be challenged to ‘lay down’ our own ‘lives’ at least for a time.



A Blood Donor Clinic will be held in Ballykisteen Hotel on Mon and Tues next (14th/15th May) from 6pm to 9pm each day.

Lord Jesus, You were sent by the Father

to gather together those who are scattered.

You came among us, doing good and bringing healing, announcing the Word of salvation and giving the Bread which lasts forever.

Be our companion on life’s pilgrim way.

May your Holy Spirit inflame our hearts,

enliven our hope and open our minds,

so that together with our sisters and brothers in faith we may recognise you in the Scriptures and in the breaking of bread.

May your Holy Spirit transform us into one body and lead us to walk humbly on the earth, in justice and love, as witnesses of your resurrection.

In communion with Mary,

whom you gave to us as our Mother

at the foot of the cross, through you may all praise, honour and blessing be to the Father in the Holy Spirit and in the Church,  Now and forever.
