Eily’s Report – 9th January

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a cáirde and welcome to my Report.

My first of 2024, how many more will follow is known only to God, but we’ll press on and see what He will send. I trust you are all well after the Festive Season. The first week of the New Year is already behind us so let us waste no minute or hour to make the  months ahead good for ourselves and those around us.

Thanks to our hardworking priests the Christmas period went very well with Masses, confessions and other Christmas ceremonies in as many churches in the Diocesan list as they could fit in. Sadly a few masses had to be cancelled but as everybody has their own transport these days going a mile or so to get Mass wasn’t a great inconvenience. Our church choir excelled themselves ,they sang for more than half an hour before the 9.30 Christmas Night Mass. It gave a great feeling of peace and  joy to sit and listen to them as the people gathered in filling the seats around the church with families. Some  home from far and near to be with their loved ones for the Holy Festival of Christmas. There were some solo singers who almost raised the roof and I’m told they represented the Polish and Ukrainian people in our midst.  While our hearts go out to them in their terrible plight, it was gratifying to know that they were made welcome to be part of our celebration of the Birth of Christ. Jesus is the reason getting top priority.
