World Mission Sunday
World Mission Sunday is the Holy Father’s annual appeal for spiritual and financial support so that the life-giving work of overseas mission and missionaries can continue. It always falls on the second last Sunday in October.
This year’s theme ‘We Cannot Remain Silent – We cannot but speak about what we have seen and heard (Acts 4:20)’ is twofold. It is a message of hope – Jesus Christ is risen and we cannot keep his love, compassion, and mercy to ourselves. It also challenges us to stand up and speak out on behalf of those who are weaker. All too often, the voices that need to be heard are not the loudest. For them, we cannot remain silent.
This weekend parishes worldwide celebrate World Mission Sunday. The kindness shown will help overseas missionaries to continue to share the love of God with some of the worlds most marginalised and vulnerable people.
Thank you for supporting in whatever way you can, and please remember it is more than an appeal for financial help. Missionaries also need spiritual support.
On World Mission Sunday, Missionaries take great strength in knowing that the faithful of the world are keeping them in their thoughts and prayers. Help right now: Donate €4 by texting the word ‘Mission’ to 50300. Alternatively donate at www.missio.ie or call Missio Ireland on 01-4972035. Envelopes are also available beside the Newsletter in both churches
To learn more, go to www.missio.ie.
Your prayers are requested for the repose of the soul of Philip McCormack whose funeral took place during the week.
Please remember all bereaved in our prayers.
This weekend we welcome in Baptism: Grace Coogan, Sienna Farrell and Elyana Garmi
May newly baptised children always know and love Jesus as their friend. We ask parishioners to pray for these children and their families
Please contact the Parish Office if you wish to have your child baptised.

Confirmation and First Communion Preparation for 2022 will begin shortly.
A number of parents have expressed interest in getting involved with organising the Preparation Masses.
