Lord Jesus Christ, deliver me from all my sins and from every evil. 
Make me ever keep Your commandments 
And never allow me to be separated from You.  Amen.

ORDINATION AND FIRST MASS 
It is a wonderful grace that our parish has a second ordination in six months.  This Sunday, June 19th, Deacon Conor Magee will be ordained by Bishop Smith at 3.00pm in the Church of the Assumption.  The Ordination Mass is a beautiful liturgy steeped in history.  The one to be ordained lies flat before the Altar before the Bishop and all the priests lay their hands on his head.  Accompanied by great prayer, Conor will give himself to God in the service of his people.  Please come and join in this very special celebration.  All are most welcome.
Fr Conor will offer his First Mass of Thanksgiving at 6.30pm on Monday June 20th.  After Mass he will give his blessing individually to all.  This will be followed by a parish reception in the Parish Centre.  Again all are most welcome!
WORLD MEETING OF FAMILIES
Pope Francis has chosen Ireland to host the 9th World Meeting of Families during 2018 which is expected to attract thousands of Catholic families from around the globe to Ireland. It is hoped that this very special pastoral initiative will present all of us in the Church with the opportunity, and the challenge, to renew, support and strengthen Irish families in their commitment to their faith. Our first collectin to support the hosting of the event was held over the first weekend of June and raised €2337.00. Well Done to all. There will be 2 more collections during the coming year.
