Thirty First Sunday in Ordinary Time                                               (44/13)

 

ANNUAL CEMETERY MASS

The Annual Mass for all those buried in the two Cemeteries in the Parish - Saint Mary’s and Old Abbey – will take place to-day, -  Sunday   in the Church at 3 o’clock.  The Blessing of the Graves in both Cemeteries will take place immediately after the Mass.

 

ANNUAL CROSSCARE/CATHOLIC YOUTH CARE (C.Y.C.) COLLECTION

The Annual Collection for CATHOLIC YOUTH CARE (the Diocesan Youth Service) will be made at all the Masses next week-end (9th and 10th November)  This collection will replace the usual SHARE collection.

Catholic Youth Care supports and services youth work and youth ministry throughout the Dublin Diocese.  Through their various services and programmes to young people and youth groups, they reach out to many of the most marginalised young people in the Archdiocese.

 

First Holy Communion 2014

The Parish Programme of preparation for First Holy Communion 2014 begins next Sunday at the 10.30am Family Mass.  The children of the parish preparing for First Holy Communion will be enrolled in the programme and this special Mass will feature a renewal of baptismal promises.  First Holy Communion is the next step after Baptism in the sacramental journey of faith for our young children.  This is why the children themselves will make their baptismal promises, something that their Godparents did for them at Baptism.  We look forward to welcoming all the children to the Mass on Sunday next.

 

THE QUOTABLE POPE FRANCIS

“Instead of being just a Church that welcomes and receives by keeping the doors open, let us try also to be a Church that finds new roads, that is able to step outside itself and go to those who do not attend Mass, to those who have quit or are indifferent.  The ones who quit sometimes do it for reasons that, if properly understood and assessed, can lead to a return.  But that takes audacity and courage.”     Pope Francis  - in a long ranging interview at www.americamagazine.org 30th September 2013

 

ANNUAL MASS FOR THOSE WHO DIED IN THE PAST YEAR

 

This Mass will be celebrated on Thursday 28th November at 8.00 p.m. in the Church.

 

Please note that the Church will be closed next week (Monday 4th to Thursday 7th November), to facilitate essential WOODWORM TREATMENT.  The Masses on those dates will take place in the Parish Hall  -  St. Columbanus.   8.00 a.m.   and   10.00 a.m.    The Church will re-open on Friday 8th November.

 

PARISH ALTAR LIST OF THE DEAD

The November Altar List of the Dead is now being prepared and lists are available in the Church.  Kindly fill in the names of those you wish to have remembered.  The Masses on the FIRST FRIDAY of each month are offered for those whose names are on the Parish Altar List of the Dead.

 

 

 

OUR DEAD

Please remember in your prayers KATHLEEN O KELLY who died last week. We offer our sympathy to her husband, Paddy and all the family.  We also pray for WILLIAM ‘Willie’ SHERRY who has died.  We offer our sympathy to his wife and family.  May they rest in peace.
