Some of the Latest News of Our Parish
1 Jesus asks the disciples how people understand who he is and then asks them ‘Who do you say I am?’ How would you answer that question? What title or description would you give to describe who Jesus is for you?
2 Jesus goes on to teach his followers that discipleship is not about fame and honour. It is about living gospel values and will involve suffering, but that suffering will be a prelude to new life. When have you found that living gospel values was indeed costly but that you were glad you had paid that price?

Parish Pilgrimage to Lourdes
The tickets for Pilgrims to Lourdes will be issued by the Travel Agent directly and will be sent by post to those travelling in the coming week. A meeting for all those travelling will take place in Rathcoole Church at 7.00 pm Monday 21sr to discuss details.
Cemetery Sunday will take place at 3.00pm on the 4th July. Mass in Saggart Church will be followed by the Blessing of the Graves (weather permitting).
The Council inform us that their resources are stretched and may not have the graveyard fully tidied up in time. So with the stretch in the days and the warm weather we are enjoying, we would like to encourage as many as possible to take a little time to tidy up the graves of their loved ones.
