THE BIRTH OF JOHN THE BAPTIST
Today’s feast celebrates the feast of the Birth of John the Baptist. John the Baptist understood his mission as preparing the way for Christ. ‘He must grow greater, I must grow less’ (John 3:30). John the Baptist was the light destined to give way to the light of Christ. In a neat piece of counterpointing, the birth of Christ is celebrated just after mid-winters’ day when the sun begins to return. Christ is the light come into the world as a tiny baby destined to grow.
‘What will this child become?’ The Baptist was to become a herald pointing the way to Jesus. In our turn we are also called to point people towards a better way of life.
Private Eucharistic Adoration will take place on each Saturday in June from 3 to 7pm.
The annual cemetery Mass for our dead will be celebrated in Emly cemetery on Wed week (4th July) at 8pm.
Thanks to all who contribute throughout the year to the Parish Envelope Collection. This replaces the quarterly collections usual in other parishes and allows parishioners to subscribe at their own convenience. This support is vital for the upkeep of the parish. Envelopes are always available at the back of the church.
EMLY TIDY TOWN
The floral displays in and around the village are being much admired. Thanks to all for their efforts. Can we once again however, appeal to owners to keep their dogs under control as much damage is being done to flower beds.
EMLY BORD NA NOG
The Cul Camp will take place in Emly from the 16th to 20th July.
THE IRISH CATHOLIC The ‘Irish Catholic’ newspaper is on sale in the church each week (price €1.30.) This week’s edition is a great photographic record of the International Eucharistic Congress.
Thanks to all who took part in the liturgy of the Mass on last Sunday. Thanks to the organisations of the parish for their co-operation in the impressive offertory procession, the coordinators on the day and all who provided the altar flowers, the readers, musicians and singers. It was fitting that on the final Eucharistic Congress Sunday, we in Emly should gather to celebrate the greatness of our communion with one another and with Jesus Christ.
