Ukraine: Irish Bishops have asked us to pray for Ukraine today, as each E.U Country has been assigned a day to pray for an end to the war and the needs of all the people seriously affected by it. Ireland’s day is St Patrick’s Day. You are encouraged to pray the Prayer for them and for an end to the war.

Prayer for the People of Ukraine
Loving God, we pray for the people of Ukraine, for all those suffering or afraid,
that you will be close to them and protect them.

We pray for world leaders,
for compassion, strength and wisdom
to guide their choices.

We pray for the world;
that in this moment of crisis,
we may reach out in solidarity
to our brothers and sisters in need.

May we walk in your ways
so that peace and justice
become a reality for the people of Ukraine
and for all the world.Amen.

Our Lady, Queen of Peace, pray for us!
Our Lady of Kyiv, pray for us!

Special Diocesan Collection for Ukraine will be taken up next weekend on Saturday and Sunday, March 26th/27th. Visit trócaire.org for more info.

Synodal Path: Pope Francis has invited every member of the Church throughout the world to share their experiences, insights and hopes for the Church. Every diocese has been asked to give opportunities for reflection, discussion and feedback in preparation for the Synod of Bishops in 2023. Here in the Diocese of Kerry there is the opportunity to share your thoughts on-line or to participate in person in the next 2 months. For details see: https://www.dioceseofkerry.ie/Synod

Daily Prayer for Synodal Listening
God our Father, Pope Francis has asked us to pray, discuss and listen, so that we might grow stronger in communion, more aware of our mission, and truly participate in the life of our Church. May the Holy Spirit help us to hear His voice during this time of listening in our Diocese. We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.

Parish Masses: If feeling healthy and well, you are encouraged to attend any Mass at this time. It will no longer be necessary to wear facemasks at Mass. However, should people wish to continue to wear masks, they are welcome to do so. The following measures will remain in place:
(i) Communion can only be received in the hand for the moment.
(ii) hand sanitisation is advised.
(iii) You can place your offering for the offertory collection in the building fund boxes at the back of the churches.
Your co-operation is very much appreciated. Parishioners are encouraged to attend Mass in a nearby Church if there is no Mass in your nearest Church.

Offertory Collection: Total: €1,681.00.
