Message from Fr Michael Moynihan May 25th 
Dear Parishioners
It was good to see families gather for the celebration of the Sacraments of First Holy Communion and Confirmation these past few weeks.  It is an opportunity to celebrate our faith as a faith community.  An opportunity also to give thanks to their teachers and all within the school communities who help prepare the children for the Sacraments and nourish their faith.  Faith is nourished in many ways by parents, families and extended families. Making prayer part of the daily routine can help.  Creating a sense of wonder and appreciation of the world around us can lead to a faith and belief in God the Creator of all that is.  Faith is nourished through prayer and the sacraments. 

It is good to spare a thought and prayer for those who are preparing for exams these days and those who are making decisions around their future careers.  As their time in second level education comes to an end may they look back with fond memories. Memories of the people they met, the knowledge they have acquired and the friendships they have made. 

Prayers for Vocations are important now more than ever. The church continues to need people willing to dedicate their lives to the priesthood or religious life. Since August 2020 there are now just three priests in full time ministry between the four parishes of Corcha Dhuibhne Pastoral area.  We are very fortunate to have Fr Seamus McKenna and Fr Jim Sheehy available and willing to help. The reduction in priests has led to a reduced schedule of Masses in each of the parishes.  We encourage people to continue to attend the celebration of the Mass even if it is not being celebrated in the church nearest to where you live.

We are currently renewing our Parish Pastoral Council, if you are interested in becoming a member, or would like to nominate somebody, please contact the Parish Office. Míle buíochas.

We are also mindful of the people of Ukraine. Some of those fleeing war are now living in the Corcha Dhuibhne Pastoral Area. It is heart warming to see the practical support they are receiving as people extend a Céad míle fáilte.

Date for your diary.  On Friday June 17th next, I will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of my Ordination to Priesthood.  A Mass of Thanksgiving will be celebrated at 6.15pm in St Marys Church Dingle.  There will be refreshments afterwards in the Presbytery grounds.  All are welcome to this celebration which is opportunity to celebrate together.

I wish you all Gods blessings at this time and the time ahead.
Fr Michael

of poverty and plenty.

Prayers of  The Rosary

“Since the prayers of the Rosary come from such excellent sources — from Our Lord Himself, from inspired Scripture, and from the Church — it is not surprising that the Rosary is so dear to our Blessed Mother and so powerful with heaven”
