18th October – 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Today, Mission Sunday, we pray for the missionary work of the Church. We remember the command of Jesus who invited his disciples to go out to the whole world and proclaim the Good News. This task is for every baptised person. Perhaps we might reflect today on how we give witness to Christ in our own daily lives and, in doing so, mediate God’s love to our families, friends, neighbours and the wider society of which we are part.

Fr. Kieran Coghlan

Mission Sunday

The annual Mission Sunday collection in support of the missionary work of the Church was due to take place at Mass this weekend. Special Mission Sunday envelopes are available on the table in the Church if you wish to make a contribution sometime during the coming week.

November Altar List of the Dead

Envelopes for the November Altar List of the Dead are available on the table in the Church. Those whose names are on the Altar List are remembered in prayer at Mass on the First Friday of every month.

November Mass for the Deceased and Bereaved

The annual Mass where we remember in prayer the souls of those who have died during the past year and seek God’s comfort for those bereaved will take place on Tuesday 3rd November at 7.30 p.m. Due to the Covid-19 restrictions this Mass will be on-line only via the webcam. Sadly it will not be possible to have relatives of the deceased present in the Church for Mass this year.

Month of the Rosary

October is known as the month of the Rosary. The feast of Our Lady of the Rosary was on Wednesday 7th October. We are invited to pray the Rosary daily and, like Mary, ponder on the mysteries which highlight significant moments in the life, death and Resurrection of Jesus our Saviour.

Open for private prayer only

Current Level 5 restrictions in response to the prevalence of the Covid-19 virus mean that Mass and other religious services, with the exceptions of weddings and funerals, must take place on-line without a congregation present in the Church.

Our Church is open for private prayer every day from after the morning Mass (via webcam) until 6 pm.

The obligation to physically attend Sunday Mass is dispensed for the time being.

People not attending Sunday Mass may fulfil their obligation to participate at Mass in alternative ways such as by listening to Mass on radio, TV or the internet or by setting aside a specific time for personal prayer.

Masses in our Church are streamed live on the internet. Click on the “View Webcam” button in the right hand column on this webpage to access the webcam.

The Scripture readings for Sunday and weekday Mass are available on the right hand side of this webpage.

People may also make a Spiritual Communion using the following prayer:

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Holy Sacrament of the altar.
I love you above all things and I passionately desire to receive you into my soul.
Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally,
come spiritually into my soul so that I may unite myself wholly to you now and forever. Amen.
