Prayer For The Dead

God, thank you for the special people in our lives
whom we are remembering here today.
We thank you that you are a compassionate God
who walks with us in our dark moments
of grief and loneliness.

We are thankful for all who continue to love
and support us in our grief.
Continue to be a light for us, giving us hope,
direction and courage.

May we now live our lives treasuring the memories
of those special people we have known and loved
and help us to bring light and hope to others.

We make this prayer through Christ our Lord. Amen

Holy Souls – November Masses will continue to be celebrated in our Parish churches remembering all those named by you in our Parish November Lists.

A triduum of Masses will be celebrated for those on the lists:

Halla Cheann Trá – ar 7.30i.n. Samhain 13ú, 14ú agus 15ú.
Séipéal Eoin Baiste – at 7.30pm. November 20th, 21st and 22nd.

Mass will be celebrated for all those who died in West Kerry Community Hospital in the past year on Wednesday November 14th at 11am.

November Offerings
Sincere thanks to all who have returned the November Offerings and list. If you have not done so, we would appreciate your returning them as soon as possible. Your list of the dead can be placed with the offering in the envelope provided. Le Mór-Bhuíochas.

Change is part and parcel of life. Significant changes are part of our lives too. Some are forced, some are necessary and some are welcome. By and large any change needs adjustments on our behalf. During this month of November we remember and pray for those who have died. For those who have lost a loved one, the changes can be overwhelming and traumatic. Adjusting to the change of a loved one not around any more can be a slow, painful and lonely journey. Our prayers during this month of November are not just a token gesture of doing something for the sake of doing it. Our prayers are in some small way an attempt to help us cope with these changes. We may never get over some changes in life but we can go a long way in feeling less threatened by them.
