I thank the parents who have returned the registration forms for Sacramental Preparation. Our parish office will make contact with you on Monday regarding the upcoming talk on Tuesday night.
PARISH OFFICE: Our Parish office is currently working behind closed doors due to the current Covid-19 restrictions. Parishioners who wish to book Masses, require Mass cards or have any other query are asked to please ring the office (029 70043).
MILLSTREET ALTAR SOCIETY for 28th February & 7th March is Group A
Just a short note to acknowledge the work that is being done by Deirdre, Edel and our Church Choir in providing us with both live and “virtual”playing during our weekend and daily Masses, Stations of the Cross and our monthly Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. Your dedication and commitment is truly appreciated.
AS WE CONTINUE OUR LENTEN JOURNEY
As we continue our Lenten journey, we do so in the midst of a lot of turmoil in our world. During this coming week perhaps, we could focus on Pope Francis’s message of encouragement for all families:
The family is a great training ground for the mutual giving and forgiving without which no love can last for long. There is a simple secret to healing wounds and avoiding recriminations. It is this: do not let the day end without apologizing, without making peace between husband and wife, between parents and children, between brothers and sisters – build bridges, not walls.”
As we continue Sacramental preparation in our Parish, we ask God to guide our parents and teachers as they show the true meaning of forgiveness and love to our children and may all our families continue to be protected during these times.
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Prayer is a state of mind
where an amazing exchange happens.
We hand over our worries to God
and He hands over His blessings to us.
