Autumn Stations

The Eucharist – Communion with Christ and with One Another – this will be the theme of the Eucharistic Congress in Dublin in 2012, but could just as easily be a motto for the custom of Station Masses in the home.  When people gather for Mass in their local area it builds up a neighbourly spirit and strengthens faith in Christ.  In most areas of the parish, Stations have not been celebrated for a number of years.  However, it only takes one household to come forward to revive this tradition, and it only takes a handful of willing families in a Station Area to put it on a firm footing for the years to come.  There’s no need to make an extravagant ‘splash’ of hospitality – all that is asked is a warm welcome for neighbours and for Christ in the Eucharist.  Anyone interested in hosting Stations in their home this autumn should contact Tigh na Sagart on 066 9151208 during the coming weeks.

Blessing of Parish Gift of Crucifix


Lord Jesus Christ,

We ask you to bless these crucifixes, reminders of the Cross by which you freed the world.  Make them holy in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, so that when our candidates for confirmation pray before them in their Sacred Space they may find health and wholeness in body and soul, through the same Christ our Lord.

Irish Connections:

(i) The first official collection for the Society for the Propagation of the Faith took place in Ireland in 1838.

(ii) Irish interest in and support for missionaries has grown in strength each year. In pre-famine times Ireland contributed between 5,000 and 7,000 pounds, the current equivalent would be €250,000.

(iii) Our own missionaries are modern reflections of the examples set in the liturgy readings. Almost 2,000 Irish missionaries are reaching out to the peoples of the world.

(iv) We are now witnessing the full circle of mission. Irish missionaries reached out, nurturing many vocations and founding Young Churches in mission lands. Now, many of these vocations are assisting Older Churches, including those in Ireland, to rediscover their missionary zeal.

How contributions are used:

(v) You Mission Sunday gift enables the formation of native priests, sisters, brothers and lay catechists.

(vi) The collection is also used to support pastoral centres and building simple mission churches.

(vii) Supporting missionaries serving refugees, emergency aid in times of natural disaster or civil strife and the provision of health clinics and nutrition for children.

How we can ‘Reach Out’:

(viii) The first reaching out is supporting missionaries by prayer. Many missionaries will speak of special strength received from an unknown source in times of sickness, persecution, civil war or natural disaster.

(ix) Another form of reaching out is the offering of personal suffering of mind or body for missionaries. St. Therese of Lisieux offered each painful step to support some missionary in difficulty.

(x) All members of the Church can and should be involved, each according to their own abilities, in bringing the light of Christ and His Gospel to those yet to know of His love.

(xi) Mission means giving beyond borders, approaching others with the Good News of Christ, and inviting them to believe.

(xii) There can also be the reaching out by means of financial help, which most Young Churches badly need. Every cent collected in Ireland is sent to mission projects throughout the world.

(xiii) Our faith is strengthened when it is shared with others. Some give to the missions by going as missionaries; but some can also reach out to the missions by giving.
