Give  it  a  Good  Name

Habits have a bit of a bad name because we so often link them with trouble, and it can be a struggle to break free from a bad one.             Yet, habits can be handy; the more often I do something the easier it is to do it.                                            It’s a matter of practice makes (nearly) perfect.


Lord ,help me to develop the habit of prayer:          to salute you when I awake each morning

and to give myself into your hands at sleep-time. May sacred places and sacred times                                        alert me to your nearness,                                                               and may meal-times make me grateful.

Sustained by these good habits may my friendship with you be constant and secure.  Amen.


Mission  Sunday

Next Sunday, 23rd Oct., is Mission Sunday world-wide, when we actively support Missionaries and the peoples among whom they spread the Gospel.


This year, in view of your generous support of the Church Repair Fund, we will not hold a special collection for the Missions. Instead we will divert some of your Offertory Collection donations to the Missions. But you might like to add a euro or two.

Emly  Community  Council

Community Council meeting this Wed 19th Oct, 8pm in St. Ailbe’s Hall. New blood with “get up and go” sought, in view of the chairman’s impending retirement. Also, due to the sad  loss of our “Panic Button” organizer Johnny Aylmer, we will be looking for someone with his great enthusiasm and respect for those requiring the service to take over this essential service. We will take on the Christmas tree display this year.  Meeting is open to all.


Church  Repairs & Maintenance 

Collins Building & Steeplejack Services have completed Phase 2 of the works planned for the parish church: renew storm glazing of the windows, renew & paint all gutters, renew power house chimney, and replace perished mortar pointing.

Thanks to your direct donations, your increased offertory contributions and your interest free loans, we have been able to clear the costs.

We now build funds for  Phase 3  in 2017.
