In  Reverse

When we eat food and digest it we transform it to become part and parcel of our bodies. It’s a gradual process. The reverse is true when we receive the Body and Blood of Christ in Holy Communion: it is he who transforms us into himself. This too is a gradual process, built on from week to week, and from year to year.


From  the  Chalice

“Eat… Drink”:The words of Jesus in the Gospel

You are invited to receive from the chalice at weekend Masses. (Remember to clean the rim of the chalice with the clothe provided.)

Tax  Rebate

Since 2013, hundreds of parishes have benefited from a Government tax rebate scheme designed to assist charitable bodies. Emly parish has now been given charitable status, eligible for this scheme. (Some neighbouring parishes have benefited in a big way in recent years.)


During the coming week I will write to each parishioner who contributed €250 or more in any one or all of the years 2013, 2014, 2015.

I invite you to complete the enclosed form giving me (on behalf of the parish) permission

to claim from Revenue the 31% rebate on your donation(s) – at no cost or disadvantage to you.

{All will be carried out in strict confidence.}


Once again, I thank you for your financial support of the parish.       Bernie Moloney, P.P.
