Inspirational CDs from Lighthouse Catholic Media:

We have an exciting new program starting here in our Parish with Lighthouse Catholic Media. Inspirational CDs are available with stories of conversion and teaching regarding the Catholic Faith.  These CDs are practical and effective in helping Catholics know their Faith, keep their Faith and share Faith!. All of the recordings are by people who are genuinely excited about their Catholic Faith and their energy is wholly contagious. We would encourage everyone to take time and listen to some of these CD’s. After listening you will feel a deep appreciation for the gift of our Catholic Faith. Many people are concerned today about family members who have fallen away from the Church and wonder if there is anything they can do about it. The answer is ‘Yes’! Just hand them a CD and ask them if they would like to listen to it. A suggested donation of €2.00 per CD covers the basic costs. The CD’s are available in the Porch at the back of the Parish Church.   More info at www.lighthousecatholicmedia.co.uk

The Messenger Magazine: This is a monthly magazine produced by the Jesuit order. It costs €1.35. It is available in the Parish Church each month. It has a lot of beautiful stories and great reflections. We encourage you to bring this magazine and the weekly Irish Catholic Newspaper into your home.  Local promoter is; ANNA MARIA RUSSELL, (025) 84151.  Copies are on sale in the Porch of the Parish Church, or from Anna Maria Russell or direct from Messenger Publications, 37 Lower Leeson Street, Dublin 2.

Cenacolo Meeting: Every Two Weeks

Cenacolo is a community of young people founded by an Italian nun, Sr. Elvira, in 1983. She began this community in Italy to help young boys and girls, who found themselves in serious difficulty with personal issues and with issues of addiction. There are now over sixty houses throughout the world, with one house outside Knock, here in Ireland. Parents can often find themselves alone and frustrated in trying to help and support their children, when they find themselves in serious difficulties. This need not be so.   This meeting will be held every two weeks in the Marian Hall at 8.00pm. The Cenacolo meeting for parents and families affected by alcohol and drug abuse will take place in the Marian Hall (near Supervalu Car park) at 8.00pm every two weeks.   All are welcome. Contact Margaret 085 – 120 0002.

The Pilgrim Statue

of Our Lady

As Catholics, images and statues are reminders to us of God’s presence and love. We don’t worship statues, but we hold them and place them in our homes and in other buildings, to remind us that the living God is with us. The Pilgrim Statue of Our Lady is available for visitation to the homes of the parish. If you would like to have the statue for a week, contact the Parish Office, the Sacristy or a Legion of Mary Member.
