The reading evokes contrasting images of God, a God who judges and a God who saves. We might reflect on how our image of God has changed with the years? God sent his Son into the world that we might have eternal life. The eternal life promised is life that survives all forms of death, failure, defeat and humiliation.

The Limerick Age Friendly Programme is holding a consultation for older adults and any group or person with an interest in ageing at the Knocklong Community Centre, Knocklong on Monday 16th June 2014 at 10:00am.  The findings of the consultation will inform the development of an Age Friendly Strategy for Limerick which will aim to improve the quality of life of older people.



The Parish Cemetery Mass will be on Wednesday  2nd July at 7.30pm.  All are most welcome to attend.



Judging is now well underway.  A very important part of the competition is litter.  We appeal to young and old if you see litter to bin it.  Thanks to all who painted and put out flowers.  If there is a flower bed or tub near your residents we would be delighted if people watered them.  We would also ask residents to please sweep outside your own area.  Thanks for your continued support.
