The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (The RCIA)
After the summer break we are hoping, early in October, to resume the RCIA meetings. The meetings will be held in the Díseart 7.00pm to 8.30pm on Monday evenings and will be open to any person, not brought up in the Catholic faith but interested in learning more about it and about what it means to become a full member of the Catholic Church.
The meetings will be relaxed and informal and will consist of a brief presentation on the subject or topic of the evening given by a member of the RCIA team, which will be followed by time for discussion and sharing; then there will be a short period of quiet reflection and sharing on a passage of Sacred Scripture and will finish with a brief prayer service. At the end there will be time for light refreshments and a chat.
If you are interested, or if you know somebody who may be interested in joining the group please get in touch with the Parish Priest in your local parish or area who will be very happy to answer any queries you may have and will put you in touch with a member of the RCIA team. (Fr. Jim Sheehy of the Chorca Dhuibhne RCIA team).

Machnamh: For the Parish we live in
Let us pray
For the Parish we live in
And for all our fellow parishioners,
That it may become for all of us
A really human community, a place of peace.
Let us pray
For all who live near us,
For our neighbours and acquaintances,
For our friends, and also
For those who are not well disposed toward us,
For all who surround us with affection
And also for those who give us trouble.
Let us pray
For safety in our Parish,
That no one’s life should be endangered
By another’s carelessness
And that our children may not meet with accidents.
Let us also pray
For peace and tranquillity
For all who are harassed,
For a sound and healthy atmosphere
And an open, human climate among people.
Let us pray
For everyone who works here –
For our factory workers,
Our artists and scholars,
Our teachers and social workers
and for all who work in our hospitals
and let us also pray for all our ministers and priests and for all who represent the Church that they may work together
For the happiness of this Parish.
To be cont’d
