Message from Fr Michael Moynihan

Dear Parishioners

There is a November tradition of writing out a list of our loved ones who have died and bringing the list to the Church where they will be prayed for. As the lists were completed this year there were no doubt people on it that we did not expect. People who died young, people who died suddenly were included for the first time. The one thing that we can all be sure of is death. As we grow older we realise that death is not just something that happens in the life of other people but a personal appointment that we must all keep. The death of a close friend or family member can stir up feelings of loss, grief and maybe anger. It can lead us to ask Why am I here? And What is the purpose of my life? The month of November is a fitting time to dwell on this aspect of our faith. Growth has stopped. The days are damp, the trees are bare, the weather is cooler and the nights are long. Nature seems to be preaching its own silent sermon about the end of things. It is a time that Christians remember those gone before them – those who have died recently and those who have died in the distant past. They may have passed from our sight but the bonds of friendship between them and us remain. Their influence is still felt in our midst. The words of Jesus in the Gospel are reassuring as they remind us that death is not the end, for we believe in a God, not of the dead but of the living. The prayerful holding of people in mind, in heart and in prayer has always been at the centre of the life of the Church. On Friday November 11th at 6.15pm in St Mary’s Church, Dingle family and friends of those who died from the parish in the past year are invited to Mass where those near and dear to them who have gone before us to eternal life will be remembered by name. All are welcome.
These days world leaders are gathered for COP27 to discuss climate change and what can be done to reduce the cause and impact especially in the poorest parts of the world. We hope that their discussions bear fruit and that each of us will live in such a way as not to damage the world around us.
Our parish programme for preparation for First Confession and First Communion continues. Parents and guardian are encouraged to help their child on their journey of faith. This can be done through helping create a sense of wonder at the great things that God has done in their lives and giving thanks in prayer to God.
At the end of November some people involved in Radio Maria will be speaking at Masses to tell us about their work. Recently I heard about a group called Marys Meals who feed children as they attend school in the poorest countries in the world. A donation of €18.30 is all it costs to feed a child for a whole school year. You can find out more on marysmeals.ie
In recent months we have installed two Tap and Donate devices in St Mary’s Church, Dingle for those who wish to contribute to the work of the parish in this way. Each time a credit/debit card is tapped €5 is donated to the parish. Many thanks to all those who support the work of the parish and its priests.
Every day we hear of the increase in the cost of living and its impact on an increasing number of people in our community, our country and throughout the world. In the next few weeks there will be a collection by St Vincent de Paul who work to help those who have fallen on difficult financial times. Those who are in a position to support their work are encouraged to do so.

God bless

Fr Michael
