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

Thought for the day: In the Anglican, Catholic and Orthodox traditions, faith and reason are not in fundamental contradiction. At the same time, there is something radically irreducible and paradoxical in our faith. It was expressed a long time ago by Bishop Robinson, the scandalous particularity of the incarnation. And we may add, of the crucifixion. The Christian vision, for us, is indeed something wonderful. Nevertheless, let’s not forget that for many today, it is in a way too wonderful, too strange and actually unbelievable. That natural resistance can be part of our faith too! Prayer: God, we come to you through the cloud of unknowing, because you are always greater, greater than our minds, greater than our hearts. Help us to stand before the bright darkness of your mysterious Being that we may come to know you as you really are.

Pope Francis on X: Let us Pray together that those who risk their lives for the Gospel in various parts of the world might imbue the Church with their courage and missionary drive.

Offertory Collection: €1,821.00.

Donate terminals, located at the back of St Mary’s Church, are programmed to donate €5 to the Parish each time they are used.

Gluten Free hosts are available from the Priest at Communion time.
