October – Mission Month
On the first day of Mission Month, we invite you to watch the video on https://wmi.us16.list-manage.com/track/click?u=1e3a0945dd2f610bf1558ad6a&id=91936a77dd&e=ae7160245e and ask you to stand with overseas missionaries as they definitely announce ‘We Are Still Here.’
#WeAreStillHere is a global missionary initiative connecting more than thirty missionaries, based in over twenty-five countries. They reflect the many faces and voices of the Church and the rich variety of men and women who serve in some of the most remote and fragile communities in the world. Throughout October, you can be there for them by keeping them in your thoughts and prayers.
This October, World Mission Sunday will take place over the weekend of the 18th. Worryingly, it is in jeopardy. The pandemic will mean fewer offerings for this vital collection. The implications for overseas missionaries and communities in the months ahead will be devastating. Please, if you are in a position to help, click the following link:
Alternatively, call Fiona on 01-4972035 who can take your gift over the phone. Thank you for your prayers and support.
Sincere thanks to all who have returned their signed Certificates. Completed Certificates can be placed in the Donation boxes at the entrance/exits in both churches, dropped into the Parish Office or posted in the box at the gate of the Parish house.
This Sunday we hear about the son being sent to the vineyard and being rejected but we also know God sends his Son, Jesus, into the fields of this world. Jesus wants sons to go forward now as priests into the fields of today. In hospitals, schools, colleges and parishes, Christ the Priest needs new priests to act in his name.
Do you feel called to be with Him and to bring Him to others?
“There is no need to worry; but if there is anything you need, pray for it, asking God for it with prayer and thanksgiving”
You belong to Christ. If the Lord invites you to follow Him as a priest or in the consecrated life, how will you respond? Speak to your local priest, or contact Fr. Tony Gonoude, Vocations Director 044-9373923.
Congratulations to Norman Allred, who was recently ordained in Mullingar Cathedral for the Diocese of Meath.
