Fourth Sunday in Lent 10th March 2024


Prayer for Mothers

When our mothers are tired, Lord,

give them strength.

When they feel alone, give them comfort.

When they feel overwhelmed with the challenges of parenting,

help them to know peace. In their darkest moments, be their Light.

At times in our lives, our mothers are everything to us, meeting our every need.

We ask You to provide them today with whatever gift they need.

In gratitude, we pray. Amen.

 

 

R.I.P.

Your prayers are requested for the repose of the souls of James (Patsy) Boylan whose funeral took place in the Parish this week and Annette Leonard whose funeral arrangements will be made later.

We ask parishioners to remember the bereaved in your prayers.

Conflict in Gaza

This week, Irish bishops emphatically called for a ceasefire in Gaza, stating:

Let us all say: enough … Stop the War!  In saying this, we join with many in our parishes, together with all people of goodwill, in demanding an immediate end to the daily horror of killing, wounding and destruction of property and infrastructure there.”
