Our Patron Saints / Laochra an Chreidimh
No. 106. St. Stephen: Stephen’s name means crown and he was the first disciple to receive the martyr’s crown. The apostles had found that they needed helpers to look after the care of the widows and the poor. So they ordained deacons and Stephen is the most famous of these.
God worked many miracles through St. Stephen and he spoke such wisdom and grace that many of his hearers became followers of Jesus. The enemies of the Church of Jesus were furious to see how successful Stephen’s preaching was. At last they laid a plot for him. They could not answer his wise argument so they got men sent to him saying that he had spoken sinfully against God.
St. Stephen faced that great assembly of enemies without fear. In fact the Holy Bible says that his face looked like the face of an angel.
The saint spoke about Jesus showing that he is the saviour God had promised to send. He scolded his enemies for not having believed in Jesus. At that they rose up in great anger and shouted at him. But Stephen looked up to heaven and said that he saw the heavens opening and Jesus standing at the right hand of God.
His hearers plugged their ears and refused to listen to another word. They dragged St. Stephen outside Jerusalem and stoned him to death. The saint prayed “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit!” Then he fell to his knees and begged God not to punish his enemies for killing him.
After such an expression of love the holy martyr went to his heavenly reward. His feast day is December 26th. He is the Patron Saint of stonemasons.
My reason for picking St. Stephen is because he was a stonemason like my Dad. (Ryan – Bunscoil Eoin Baiste)

Pastoral Visit of Bishop de Brún
Bishop Réamoinn de Brún visited our Parishes last weekend. Having launched the “Dingle Parish Directory and Patrons / Treoraí agus Laochra Chreidimh” at our Vigil Mass, he visited the Temperance Hall to bless the newly formed Parish Hall Committee. The new Parish Directory, celebrating the 150th Anniversary of St. Mary’s Church, is a delightful 106 page publication presenting all Faith-based groups in our Parish and the lives of some 107 heroes and heroines of Faith. It will be available on sale from next weekend.
Bishop de Brún led pilgrims on the traditional Turas ó Baile Breac go barr Cnoc Bhréanainn ar Fhéile Pheadair ‘s Póil ar an Domhnach seo caite. Míle buíochas don Choiste agus do ghach oilitreach a bhí páirteach ann.
