White Fathers’ African Missionary Appeal
Míle buíochas to all who contributed to last weekend’s mission appeal. €4,005 was received.















One of the nicest things in life is to meet an open, friendly, warm, hospitable person. Hospitality is a hallmark of a true follower of Christ.
Christ calls us to welcome the strangers in our midst. To be hospitable does not mean making them like us. It means accepting them as they are. This enables them to shed their strangeness, and become members of the community.
To open one’s heart is to begin to live. To close it is to begin to die.
