TROCAIRE – We Reach out to Help.

Let us not forget how important our contribution is to Trocaire’s Third World work. Thanks to all who have handed in their Trocaire envelopes and boxes.



Thomas, doubting and questioning, is possibly a person with whom we can identify. Note the way that Jesus dealt with Thomas. He did not give out because he doubted. He accepted how he felt and led him along to see the truth of his Resurrection. ‘Blessed are they who have not seen and yet believed.’



The National Tidy Town’s competition starts within the next few weeks. We appeal to residents to sweep outside their own areas.  Please be aware of litter.  Now is the time for painting and power washing. Thanks for your continued support.

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. sent by the
