Eucharistic Congress 2012

In preparation for the Eucharistic Congress 2012, we are invited over the coming two years to focus on how we celebrate the Eucharist.

“The way we gather is meant to reflect something of who we are. Instead of people coming unnoticed into the church, might there be a friendly face, distributing the leaflet perhaps? Instead of people just waiting for things to start, might we practise the music, to get us into the frame of mind? Instead of the priest slipping in a side door from the sacristy, could we have a procession up the church, from among the gathered people, drawing us into a common focus? Perhaps, before the priest begins, might a layperson welcome us and present the theme of the day’s worship?”

(Excerpt from Exploring Eucharist – Dónal Harrington)




Together in Mission

Mission Sunday – October 24th

In his message for Mission Sunday, Pope Benedict wrote, “I wish to acknowledge the great work of all missionaries, who proclaim the gospel in distant and difficult places, often at the cost of their own lives. Offer them your friendship, closeness and support. Please support the Younger Churches by your prayers. In spite of present economic difficulties, please also give them material support. The Mission Sunday collection organised by the Pontifical Mission Societies, to whom I express my gratitude, will go towards the support of priests, seminarians, religious and catechists in distant missionary lands.”


Mission Sunday, the second last Sunday of October, is unique in that a theme with the prayers and readings of Mass are specially chose, in our case by World Missions, Ireland, the working title of the Pontifical Mission Societies. The special collection on the day goes as the financial support from Ireland to Christian Communities in other parts of the world, especially those in greatest need. It is made available to the Universal Solidarity Fund to be distributed to as many as 1,096 young Churches, and to help train catechists, novices and seminarians and fund health care programmes, schools and orphanages and provide emergency aid. At present there are 1,976 Irish missionaries working in over eighty countries throughout the world. Please keep the welfare and intentions of all the missionaries of our own Parish, both lay and religious in your personal and family prayers.

Prayer for Vocations to the Priesthood

Lord Jesus Christ, Shepherd of souls, who called the apostles to be fishers of men, raise up new apostles in your holy Church. Teach them that to serve you is to reign: to possess you is to possess all things. Kindle in the hearts of your people the fire of zeal for souls. Through the intercession of St. John Vianney send us priests. Make them eager to spread your Kingdom upon earth. Grant them courage to follow you, who are the Way, the Truth, and the Life; who lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.

Frs. Tomás and Bernard will continue their visit to all homes in Baile an Ghóilín/Burnham this week in preparation for our Mission which will take place from Sun the 7th of Nov. to Friday 12th under the direction of the Redemptorist Team.


Heavenly Father we ask you to bless us,

As we prepare for our Parish Mission in November.

Open our hearts to Your grace,

That we may be more faithful in following Your way.


Bless all families in our parish at home and afar,

Especially those families

That are experiencing difficulties.


Bless the old, the young, the lonely,

The poor, the sick, the unemployed,

Those in sorrow, those in despair,

Those who have lost their way.


May Your love be upon us, O Lord

As we place all our hope in you. Amen.



A Athair neamhaí iarraimid ort sinn a bheannú

Agus sinn ag ullmhú do Mhisean an Pharóiste i Mí na Samhna.


Oscail ár gcroíthe dod ghrásta

Go mbeimid níos dílse ag leanúint do shlí.


Leag go fial do bheannacht ar na teaghlaigh inár bparóiste ar ár bpobal sa bhaile agus i gcéin,

Go h’áirithe na teaghlaigh sin atá i gcruachás.

Beannaigh idir óg agus críonna, uaigneach

Bocht, breoite, iad siúd atá in isle brí,

Iad siúd a chaill a slí

Go dtitfidh do ghrá orainn, a Thiarna

Agus sinn ag cur ár ndóchas i dtaisce ionat. Amen

Moss Keane R.I.P. (1948-2010)

At the removal inside the thronged St. Michael’s Church, Portarlington, Fr. Michael Noonan told of Moss’s less reported “dedicated commitment to his faith and his Church”. “For Moss his faith, his belief in Christ, his commitment to the Catholic Church, all of these were of paramount. “As already mentioned Moss was a very spiritual man with a great knowledge and feeling for religion. He had a very deep faith and this was one of the cornerstones of his life.”

At the requiem Mass the chief celebrant Fr. Thomas Dooley, also spoke about Keane’s final struggle, paying tribute in particular to the care and devotion of his family, extended family and huge circle of friends. “His courage and his strength on the field of play are legendary but he fought his greatest and most courageous battle for the past two years against sickness and cancer… At each setback, there were moments for Mossie of doubt and anger, of fear and even despair. But he did not hide these feelings … and he bounced back quickly.”

“Last Monday evening I brought him Holy Communion for the last time and I watched with him the last three holes of the Ryder Cup … He believed God, he said his prayers. I think he accepted the cross of sickness in the same way as he accepted the crown of glory…”

“Leaba i measc na laochra go raibh aige”.
