Second Sunday in Lent 5th March 2023
there is so much darkness in my life and I hide from you.
Take my hand and lead me out of the shadows of my fear.
Help me to change my heart.
Bring me to your truth and help me to respond to your generous love.
Let me recognise the fullness of your love which will fill my life.
Free me from the darkness in my heart. Amen
Your prayers are requested for the repose of the soul of Clare Walsh, late of Leixlip and Whitecross, sister of Chrissie Brennan, Claristown. We ask parishioners to remember the bereaved in your prayers.
Ceremonies in our Parish
Congratulations to the children from our Parish who were Confirmed by Bishop Tom last Monday.
Thanks to all who helped prepare the children for this special day as they continue their journey in Faith.
A special thanks to all the Teachers, Principles and Staff of both schools for their handing on of the Faith to the children, and to all who helped on the Day.
Recently, we welcomed Millie Dowling, Casey Ryan, Lola Ryan, Noah Ryan and Penelope Ryan in Baptism.
We ask Parishioners to pray for all children and their families.
