THE BIRTH OF THE CHURCH

This weekend, we celebrate the Feast of Pentecost, the birth of the Church of which we are all a part.  The Gospel reading tells us that the disciples were in a room with the doors firmly closed, for fear of the Jews, when Jesus came among them.  The disciples were hiding, keeping a low profile and definitely not displaying openly that they were followers of Jesus.

Some of you may remember the Latin inscription that was above the Altar in Tullabeg Jesuit Church.  It read “Ignem Veni Mittere in Terram”, which translates as, “I come to put a fire in the world”.  And that is what happened on this day of Pentecost.  Jesus came to the disciples and gave them His Spirit, the Holy Spirit.  He put fire in them.  Their faith was ignited and set alight.  The lack of conviction in these cowardly men was burned away.  They could not wait to go forth and spread the good news of salvation.

We too have received the gift of the Holy Spirit at our Confirmation.  We too, the Church of Christ, have received the seven gifts that the Spirit brings.  Are we transformed and ready to show openly our belief in the good news of salvation?  Are we ready to go forth in our world?


FEAST OF CORPUS CHRISTI RETREAT & PROCESSION

A retreat will be hosted by the Knights of St Columbanus on Saturday 22nd to mark the feast of Corpus Christi. Starting with Mass at 10.00am, the retreat then moves to the Parish Centre for a series of talks and reflections and ends at 3.00pm. All members of the parish are invited to attend this retreat.

The annual Corpus Christi Procession will be held on Saturday 22nd after 6.30pm Mass (weather permitting).

The procession will take the route, Store St, Harbour St, Columcille St, Church St, Henry St, Harbour St and end with Benediction in the grounds of the Church of the Assumption. All parishioners are encouraged to take part in this joyful public celebration of the Eucharist.


FR SHANE

This is Fr. Shane’s last weekend with us in the parish as he prepares to take up his new assignment in Navan. I wish to acknowledge his great contribution to this parish over the last fourteen years. He has given of himself with energy and enthusiasm in all areas of parish life. He has been with people at very delicate times in their lives and he has given them hope and strength to continue on the journey of life. On a more personal note, he has been very supportive to me and thepriests of the parish and a good colleague and friend. I thank him for his loyalty, care and thoughtfulness and I wish him every blessing as he continues his privileged ministry in the service of God and God’s people. 

Fr Joe.
