COMMUNION  AND  CONFIRMATION

The sacrament of Confirmation will be celebrated by Archbishop  Kieran O’Reilly in this parish on Thursday next the 21st of May at llam and on Sunday the 24th of May our children will receive their First Holy Communion at the 11am Mass celebrated by Fr. Seamus Rochford.

We wish all our children the very best and we pray that the Lord will bless and guide them now and in the years ahead.

 

 

GOSPEL REFLECTION

The disciples ‘went out’; bringing ‘good news’ everywhere. We too are called to be Easter People because we live with an assurance that pain, death and grief will not have the last word and we dare to shine the light of hope and wholeness into the empty tomb. Where have you encountered Easter People in your own life? How do you communicate this risen Jesus to others? How can we be Easter People to others? This is the challenge of the Gospel today. To bring Christ’s love and assurance to all we meet.
