Some of the Latest News of our Parish
Luke 10:1-12, 17-20
1 Jesus sent out his disciples on a mission to let people know ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ Recall when you have reached out to another in word or in deed to help them realise that they were cherished, perhaps by a word of sympathy or encouragement, or by giving a hand with a difficult task. What was it like for you to experience yourself as a person bringing help and encouragement to another?
2 Jesus sent the disciples out two by two. When have you found it beneficial not to be working alone, but with another by your side? What difference did it make to how you felt, or to what you were able to achieve? John Byrne OSA (Intercom)
Blessing of the Graves
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).
Unfortunately, due to financial cut-backs, the Council still have not cleaned up the graveyard in time. It is far from ideal. Of those who will attend, we ask of your patience.
