Thought for the day: The feats of engineering hinted at in the citations from Isaiah may seem physically daunting but are even more of a challenge on the intended spiritual level. The highway is for our God— and we could ask what in me impedes his way, how do I block the arrival of the Lord in my life? More positively, I could ask myself what do I do so that the Gospel may come alive in my life? With such cooperation from me, the Lord can and will bring to completion what he has begun. Prayer: O God, you search me and you know me. Help me to know myself better; help me acknowledge and set aside the blocks to your coming. You have indeed begun a good work in me and, in spite of my hesitations and resistance, I too want it to be brought to completion under your graceful care. Amen.

Candles for graves are available from the Parish Office, €4 each or 3 for €10.

Parish Envelopes 2022: If there are any Parishioners who would like to receive Parish Envelopes for 2022, please contact the Presbytery on 066-9151208 as soon as possible. Using the envelopes allows the Parish to claim back tax from PAYE Workers and Self-Employed who have contributed €250 or more during the year. Buíochas ó chroí for your great support and generosity.

We would be most grateful if the people that received the taxback letters recently could return the enduring certificate as soon as possible in the stamped addressed envelope. Fill in your PPS number and sign the cert. By completing the cert you allow the Parish to claim back the tax without any cost to you. Many thanks for your generosity.

Synodal Pathway – Our time to reflect, discuss and listen: As part of our Diocese’s participation in the 2023 Synod of Bishops, we will be offering opportunities for discussion and listening in the Spring.
Before that happens, you are invited to visit www.dioceseofkerry.ie/SynodQ/ to learn more about the questions that Pope Francis is asking us to reflect on.

Christmas Cards, packs of 6 (€5) or 12 (€10), Christmas Mass Bouquet Cards and Mass Cards are available from the Parish Office. Ring 066-9151208.

Kerry Diocesan Covid Support Team: Due to the increase in the numbers of people becoming infected with Covid-19, please follow the public health advice and reduce your social contacts. The public health advice is to get vaccinated as vaccination offers the best protection for you, your family and for others against severe disease. Vaccination will reduce the number of people requiring hospitalization and will free up ICU beds for use in our hospitals.

Parish Masses: If you are considering returning to Mass, now is a good time. You are welcome to attend either the weekday Mass or weekend Mass as the Sunday obligation is still lifted. We give thanks to God that we can physically gather as a faith community once again. Please join us. It would be great to see you back. Protective measures include:
(i) You are asked to wear a face mask.
(ii) Come in good time.
(iii) We ask that you observe social distancing.
(iv) Communion can only be received in the hand at this time.
(v) hand sanitisation is advised.
(vii) You can place your offering for the offertory collection in the building fund boxes at the back of the churches as the passing of baskets is not permitted.
Your co-operation is very much appreciated.

Diocesan Collection for Youth Services will be taken up this weekend, Dec 4th/5th. A separate box will be available at the back of the Churches.
