Christmas Crib Appeal 2023 – proceeds from the 3 parish churches will go to Trócaire for its humanitarian work in the Middle East with its partners on the ground. Received to date €4,289.

Thought for the day: Which of us is not in need of some kind of healing? The healing touch of Jesus reaches out to all in need: the physically ill, the mentally disturbed, the addicts, the bereaved, the lonely, the distraught, the stressed, the sinners. He desires our well-being, that we might be fully alive and experience life in abundance. Prayer: I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, he may grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being with power through his Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love. I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:16–19)

Pope Francis on X: In this Year of Prayer, we are invited to make room for prayer that flows from the Holy Spirit. He knows how to place in our hearts and on our lips the right words in order to be heard by the Father.

Baskets for the Offertory Collection are now being used. Míle buíochas to all those who have volunteered.

Diocesan Collection for Lourdes Helpers will be taken up as a second collection after communion next weekend February 10th / 11th. The theme for this year in Lourdes is “come here in procession” which Our Lady asked St Bernadette. While the Pilgrimage has changed over the past 50 years, the main purpose is still the same, to take the sick to Lourdes and for this we need helpers. Many are students and thus require help to finance the trip. This collection goes towards that effort and also it helps assisted pilgrims who may not be able to afford to pay the full fare and would like to go to Lourdes.

Why not consider becoming a Trócaire Parish Volunteer, activities include supporting the annual Lenten Campaign as well as taking part in a wide range of events to help Trócaire spread the word about the vital work they do. For more info, contact Janet Twomey on 021-4275622.
