Teach  Us  To  Live

God of love – Forgive! Forgive!                                              Teach us how to truly live.                                                   Ask us not our race or creed,                                               Just take us in our hour of need,                                               And let us know You love us too,                                                 and that we are a part of you…

And some day may we realize                                                       That all the earth, the seas and skies                                            Belong to You who made us all,                                                          The rich, the poor, the great, the small,                                                                And in the Father’s Holy Sight                                                        No one is yellow, black or white,                                                  and peace on earth cannot be found                                                    Untill we meet on common ground                                                                 And every man becomes a brother                                                        Who worships God and loves each other.

Helen S. Rice.

Pastoral  Letter  from  Archbishop

This weekend Archbishop O’Reilly sends us a very important letter. It raises the big question : How do we, the people of Cashel & Emly, face the future – as a people of Faith? He is launching what he calls “a process of listening and planning for the future of our Church in the Archdiocese.” He invites you to participate in this process over the coming months.
