Corca Dhuibhne Pastoral Area Mass
Corca Dhuibhne Pastoral Area will commemorate the Great Famine 1845-1852, with a Mass celebrated by Bishop Ray Browne at Ballyduff Cemetery, Cloghane, on Fri. 25th July 2014 at 7.30pm. (100 metres off the main Castlegregory/Dingle Road on the Dingle side of Stradbally and signposted). This Cemetery contains the remains of many people who died during the Famine. Nearby stand the remains of Liscarney House, which served as an auxiliary Workhouse at the time.
The Famine in the Dingle Peninsula
John Busteed, a surgeon attached to the Castlegregory dispensary, drew attention to Killiney and the neighbouring parishes, claiming that they too were suffering greatly, but doing so in silence. He named a number of people who had died of hunger or disease and described in detail the fate of one particular family.
On 16 November John Boland, a labourer, collapsed while working on a new road to the west of Dingle. He was carried to his home, where he died. The inquest verdict of ‘death from hunger and cold’ was the first of many. A local clergyman wrote at the end of December that the people seemed to be ‘dying by inches’, in that they had some food but not enough to ‘support life’. Eight people from John Street in Dingle died in a single day in January 1847 from dysentery and starvation.
A Prayer for Famine Victims
Heavenly Father,
Their eyes gazed upon the delights
Of Your creation, its colours and its shades.
They caught a glimpse of You.

Their ears were filled with the calls of
Living things and with the silence
Of Your movement in all reality.

Their hands moulded what they
Touched and traded, signposting
A New Heaven and a New Earth.

Their feet imprinted Your Son’s journey
Where His footstep did not fall.

Their voices raised in baby cries,
In adult speech were footpaths
To the Liturgy in praise of You.

But, their bodies hungered to death-
To us it is a shame!
Understand our protest!
Father, who do not deny request:
Share with them Eternal Justice.
Lead our brother and sisters
To honoured places at the Eternal Banquet.
All praise to You. Amen.

Treoraí agus Laochra Chreidimh
Dingle Parish Directory and Patrons
To highlight the 150th Jubilee of St. Mary’s Church, Dingle Parish Pastoral Council has published a colourful Directory. All Faith-based groups and pastoral services are presented together with the lives and witness of 107 heroes and heroines of the Faith. These, in the main, are the chosen Patrons of all recent Confirmation candidates who pen their stories and reasons for their choice. These biographies, already published in the Parish newsletter as a Year of Faith project, take up 60 pages of the new Directory under the Laochra an Chreidimh heading.
All seven churches and oratories are well described together with interesting facts relating to ten cemeteries across the Parish landscape. The contact details of 15 Parish committees and 8 local schools are comprehensively outlined. Tribute is paid to the outstanding witness and ministry of the Christian Brothers and Sisters of Mercy and Presentation over the past two centuries. The generous everyday Parish service of more than 500 volunteer parishioners is hailed in Treoraí 7 Laochra an Chreidimh / Dingle Parish Directory and Patrons in celebration of St. Mary’s 150 Fé Bhlath.
The Directory, featuring 100 coloured illustrations was launched by Bishop de Brún on his recent pastoral visit to the Parish and is now available for sale in the following outlets in the Parish for €5.

New Irish Catechism For Adults
The Catechism of the Catholic Church is meant to encourage and assist in the writing of new local catechisms, which must take into account various situations and culture, while carefully preserving the unity of faith and fidelity to Catholic doctrine.
(Saint John Paul II, The Deposit of Faith, IV, no.4)
Stories or Lessons of Faith
One of the deeply held beliefs of the Irish people through the ages has been the connection with our dear departed. This human value reflects the revealed truth in the article of the Creed: the ‘Communion of Saints’. The Church is an assembly throughout space and time of all the people of God, living and dead.
The communion of saints means that ‘none of us lives for himself and none of us dies for himself’ (Rm 14:7.) This is true of the living and those who have died. The life and death of Jesus Christ is for our salvation and sanctification. Similarly, the lives and deaths of the holy ones who preceded us work to our benefit as well. The saints intercede for us with Christ, to the Father, in the Spirit, by their eternal concern for those whom they love. They provide an example and a headline for us, surely, but more than that, their actions and merits, through Christ and the sacraments, links both the living and risen people, earth and heaven, time and eternity, indeed, the past, the present and the future, in a holy and beneficially effective exchange of grace, so that ‘… what each one does or suffers in and for Christ bears fruit for all’. (CCC, no. 996)
NB: Weekly we hope to publish extracts from the new Catechism.
