Some of the Latest News of our Parish

seeing your life through the lens of the gospels

1 The first of the faults attributed to the rich man is his insensitivity to the abject poverty of those around him. When have you discovered that it is when you are aware of the needs of those around you and seek to make some response that you bring out the best in yourself?

2 The second fault attributed to the rich man is the way he ignored the word of God coming through Moses and the prophets. How have the Gospels, the scriptures or your faith opened you up to a deeper and more satisfying perspective on life? the world around you? John Byrne OSA (intercom)

The theme for the DAY FOR YOURSELF on October 9th is Living Life Gratefully.  A sense of gratitude for life can do wonders to lift our spirits even when life seems full of problems.  This day, which will be led by Bernadette Toal and John Byrne, will encourage participants to keep gratitude in their hearts at all times.  The day runs from 10.00 am to 4.30 pm with the opportunity of staying on for Mass at 4.30.   Cost €50 ((including lunch).
This is a two-hour introduction to the theory and practice of meditation for people who have thought they would like to start this practice but don’t quite know how to get started.  In order to make the introduction available to as many people as possible we are running it on Sunday 10th afternoon (3.00-5.00pm), Tuesday 12th morning (11.00am-1.00pm) and Thursday 14th evening (7.30-9.30pm).  It will be run by John Byrne and Bernadette Toal and there is no charge.
