Students ‘Sleep Out’ for Trocaire

HomeTwenty three students and teachers from Millstreet Community College will brave the elements and ‘sleep out’ overnight at the doors of Cork’s Millstreet Church to support Trocaire’s Lenten campaign on hunger. They will be joined by members of Millstreet parish. The students aim to highlight world hunger and the poor living conditions faced by people struggling to survive, while raising money for Trocaire’s work.

To make the sleep-out as challenging as possible they will leave mobile phones, i-pods, and all forms of portable entertainment at home. The students will speak at local parishes over this weekend, 27/28th February, and to end the week off they will undergo a 24 hour Fast on Friday 5th March for Trocaire. Also on the 11th March there will be a multicultural event in the Community School as part of the Lenten Project.

Why? For the first time in history 1 billion people or one in six people in the world do not have enough food.

At the doors of St.Patricks Church, Millstreet. 7pm on Monday 1st March to 7am on Tuesday 2nd March.

February 1st: St. Bridget’s Day

Today is first day of February, and as always is the feast day of St Bridget one of the few Irish saints.

St Bridget's Cross

We grew up knowing about the St. Bridget’s Cross and the confusion in trying to make it correctly, or to make the biggest and best one. According to tradition a new cross is made each Saint Brigid’s Day (February 1), and the old one is burned to keep fire from the house … but of course customs vary by locality as some people keep them for years.

Another local tradition is that you hang a cloth outside for the night before St Bridget’s day, and rub it to any sores that you get during the year, and it will help to make the pain go away more quickly.

Give it a go at making the cross: If you missed the demonstration last Friday in the Library, just read these instructions on how to make a St Bridgets Cross. You will of course need about a dozen rushes to make one. There’s loads of rushes in the fields this year, and the farmers will only be too be glad to see you taking them (in fact take all of them if you want!). Best of luck.

Collection for Haiti this Weekend

The Haiti earthquake occurred on Jan 12th 2010. Currently there are 170,000 confirmed dead and three million affected by this catastrophic event. As there hasn’t been a concerted effort to raise funds for food/shelter/medicine and everything else that these devastated people need, there will be a church door collection at all the masses this weekend (30th & 31st Jan), and all are encouraged to give generously as the affected people had nothing beforehand, and have even less now. From the parish newsletter last weekend:

Bishop Bill has decided that it would be good to afford parishioners of the Diocese an opportunity to respond to the current situation in Haiti. Next weekend there will be a special Church Door collection for those who wish to donate. This money will be sent to Trocaire who are working on the ground with Caritas International

The “Sounds of Advent” concert is on this evening in St.Patricks Church at 7:30pm. The sound in the church this morning was really good with the new sound system installed and adjusted. With two choirs  singing (our own Millstreet Choir and the Kerry Choir), it promises to be a very entertaining evening, especially if you had nothing already planned for the evening. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door. All proceeds to the Church Restoration Fund.
