Jesus speaks of the freedom of the Good Shepherd in laying down his life. Faced with the needs of others, we can at times feel trapped into looking after them, caught by duty, obligation or guilt. We can become like the hired hands who do a job without care for the person. Perhaps you have experienced both attitudes, caring for others under duress and by free choice. What difference did it make when you chose to care for the other.



Come, see and test-drive a Renault electric car which will be on display in the church carpark after second Mass on this Sunday (29th). This is organised by Emly Tidy Town in conjunction with South Tipperary Energy Agency and South Tipperary County Council.



Emly Community Council wishes to thank all those who took part in our recent 10K Run and Walk.  We offer a special word of gratitude to our sponsors, marshals, administration team and all who volunteered on the day. We look forward to many equally successful ventures in the future.

Each diocese will hold their Fourth National Collection next weekend  5th & 6th May 2012.

The Eucharistic Congress is an international gathering of people which aims to:

  • Promote an awareness of the central place of the Eucharist in the life and mission of the Catholic Church.
  • Help improve our understanding and celebration of the liturgy.
  • Draw attention to the social dimension of the Eucharist.

All large celebrations require a great deal of preparation.  The 50th International Eucharistic Congress is no exception.  There are many challenges involved and we want to ensure that the whole Church, both here in Ireland and further afield, will see the Congress as an opportunity to deepen our faith in the Eucharist.  You are invited to support the Fourth National Collection on the 5th and 6th May 2012.  Your support, especially in these difficult economic times is very much appreciated.
