The LENTEN REFLECTION DAY, which was to take place to-day - Sunday 26th February

has been postponed until next month.  Please see the Parish Newsletter in March for a new date for the Day of Reflection with Una O’Neill, R.S.C.

 

SPEND AN HOUR A WEEK WITH THE LORD IN LENT

Lent is a time of fasting, prayer and reflection as Jesus did when he spent 40 days in the desert. This Lent, there is a new way to spend a quiet hour with the Lord each week by giving him an hour in Eucharistic Adoration.  Anyone who would like to try this out is very welcome to join the regular adorers in our Church for an hour to see for themselves if this is something that they would like to do.  For days and times or to find out more information, please pick up a flyer from the Church bookstand.

 

NOVENA OF GRACE

This year’s Novena of Grace will commence on Sunday 4th March at the 12 noon Mass.  From Monday 5th March to Friday 9th March the Novena Mass will be at 8.00 p.m.  Novena Mass on Saturday 10th March at 7.00 p.m.  On Sunday, 11th March, the Novena Mass will be at 12 noon.  On Monday 12th March Novena Mass at 8.00 p.m.  The Novena will be conducted by FATHER WILLIAM REYNOLDS, S.J.

 

 

OUR DEAD

Please remember in your prayers, MARY SWEENEY, who died last week.  We offer our sympathy to her family.  May she rest in peace.
