As Lent begins we like to resolve to do something special that will help to renew us and prepare us for the great feast of Easter. One good resolution would be to attend, if possible, the parish retreat to be given by Fr. Michael McGoldrick, ODC. Please note the dates in your diary. Do please spread the word and keep those days in your prayer.
THE MONTHLY COLLECTION FOR ST. VINCENT DE PAUL WILL BE TAKEN UP AFTER ALL MASSES NEXT WEEKEND 8TH/9TH MARCH. YOUR SUPPORT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED.
C hurch Bookshop has now re-opened. We have a lovely selection of cards and gifts for Confirmation, First communion and Baptism - Why not come and take a look.
Congratulations to Michael John Fennelly (Marley Lawn) and Aoife Gallagher who were married in St. Brendan’s Church Dingle on Friday the 7th March. Wishing them all the best as they start out on married life together.
ON TUESDAY 18TH MARCH IN THE PARISH PARLOUR AT 8.00 P.M., ANGELA CAMPION OP, A RENOWNED SPEAKER AND SPIRITUAL GUIDE WILL LEAD A SHARED REFLECTION ON THE FOLLOWING SUNDAYS’ GOSPEL -
“THE WOMAN AT THE WELL” (John 4)
ALL ARE VERY WELCOME TO ATTEND
Each year our faith community journeys through the season of Lent with the aid of our Lenten garden. It is hoped that the pictorial image may encourage thought and reflection of the gospel each week. We encourage everyone to visit the garden and journey with its transformation from Ash Wednesday to the Resurrection of Easter Sunday. This year, the Trocaire campaign is emphasising the theme of water. The waste of water, the want of water, the misuse of water. We are invited to reflect in our own lives how we use or misuse water. The Lenten experience affects each one of us personally. May we pray that we are open to allowing the word of God to become a part of who we are.
