O merciful God, take pity on those souls who have no particular
Friends and intercessors to recommend them to Thee, who, either
Of time or circumstances are forgotten by their friends and by all. Amen.

UNDERSTANDING DEMENTIA
Dementia is a progressive condition and currently it cannot be cured. Each person's experience with dementia is unique, and that means tht it is not possible to know exactly how a person's dementia will progress, or how long they will live with dementia. The Irish Hospice Foundation has provided helpful information for those who have a relative diagnosed with dementia.   to read more. 

LENT
Weekday Masses: 7:30 am, 10:00 am & 7:30 pm. every day.
Monday Evenings: Every Monday evening this Lent we have a guest speaker to lead us in prayer and reflection.  This week we welcome Father Liam Lawton, who was born in Edenderry, and ordained in 1984. He taught in Knockbeg College and in the year 2000 returned to post graduate studies at the University of Limerick. He expanded his knowledge of music and soon began composing and performing his own Sacred and Liturgical music. His compositions have been performed at ceremonies throughout the world.
Evening Prayer: Evening Prayer for Lent continues this Sunday, 12th, at 5:30 pm in the Church of the Assumption.  All are welcome.  

Holy Thursday    The washing of the feet is a very important part of the Holy Week clebrations. It takes place during the Holy Thursday Mass at 7.30pm. We need twelve people for this celebration. If you would be willing to participate in the washing of the feet please leave your name in the sacristy.

This Sunday is Mother's Day so show her how much you love and honor her as your mother. Early Christians celebrated a day to honor mothers during a festival on the fourth Sunday of Lent. Originally the celebration was to honor the Virgin Mary, the Mother of Christ, however the holiday was later expanded to include all mothers. Click here: Two beautiful poems
