Thought for the day: The image of the king is a foundational metaphor in the Bible, which in ordinary usage suggests power and glory. But even in the ancient biblical tradition, there are two significant modifications. According to an Old Testament vision, a king is meant to be a shepherd to his people, a true shepherd who cares for and who knows and even loves his sheep. According to a New Testament vision, Jesus our king rules paradoxically by loving service, humility and the gift of himself. This example and teaching of Jesus have lost none of their power. Prayer: Wake us up, O God, and rouse us from the slumber of the everyday that we may recognise you in every moment and in every person, each day of our lives. Amen.

Pope Francis on X: How many children are deprived of the fundamental right to life and to physical and mental integrity due to conflicts? How many children are forced to take part, directly or indirectly, in fighting, and bear the scars? No war is worth the tears of children.

Diocesan Collection in aid of Diocesan Youth Service will be taken up next weekend December 2nd /3rd. Separate boxes will be placed at the back of the churches.

Offertory Collection: €1,230.00.

Baskets for the Offertory Collection will be re-introduced in December. We would greatly appreciate anyone volunteering to help with the collections. Volunteers are required to collect the baskets. Please contact the Parish Office. It is hoped to put in place 4 teams which would mean that each team would only be on the rota once every 4 weeks.

Can you spare 1 hour a month? We are currently renewing all Parish Ministries, including Cleaners, Readers, Eucharistic Ministers and Liturgy Group. We are also looking for volunteers to help with the collections at the weekend masses. If you would like to volunteer or know somebody who would be interested, contact the Parish Office. Training will be provided where necessary.
