I need Your help, dear God. Strengthen  
Me with Your love and Your grace. 
Console me with Your blessed Presence
And grant me the courage to persevere 
Until I am with You forever in heaven.  Amen.

WORLD MEETING OF FAMILIES 2018
Dublin, Ireland, has been chosen by Pope Francis to host the next World Meeting of Families from 21-26 August 2018, guided by the theme “The Gospel of the Family: Joy for the World”. Held every three years, this major international event brings together families from across the world to celebrate, pray and reflect upon the central importance of marriage and the family as the cornerstone of our lives, of society and of the Church. We have further information further down the page.

TROCAIRE COLLECTION
Thanks to all who contributed so generously to the special collection for Trocaire last weekend which raised over €14,000. The money raised will go directly to Trócaire’s emergency response, which is helping to deliver food, water, healthcare and other life-saving aid to people affected. Severe drought, driven by climate change, is currently affecting Kenya, South Sudan, Somalia and Ethiopia and this has resulted in failed harvests and the widespread death of livestock. Approximately 25 million people have been left facing severe food shortages. Conflict has exacerbated the effects in South Sudan and Somalia, with areas in both countries now on the verge of famine.
