Lord Jesus, give us tastes of resurrection now                                                  Show us how to find good things to say about our family, friends, and acquaintances.                        Let us to find joy in making new beginnings: after failure, help us to start again;                                   after sickness, let us find good health;                              after sadness, may we take new heart;                           after falling out, may we forgive.                                               In these ways, Lord Jesus, may be share in the mystery of your resurrection to new life.  Amen.


“Thank You” to Many

Thanks to all parishioners who took an active part in the Liturgy and prayer life of the parish during Lent and Holy Week. Special thanks to sacristan Jimmy White, organist Marie Ryan, Nora Hennessy & choir members; Dympna White & church cleaners, readers, collectors, Eucharist ministers, altar servers, Parish Pastoral Council, Denis Heffernan for floral arrangements, Betty Callanan for parish bulletin, and to other s who contributed behind the scenes.


Thanks too to all who contributed to the financial upkeep of the parish through the Planned Giving envelopes and the weekly Offertory Collection.
