Teach me, Lord Jesus, to be generous: to serve You as You deserve; 
To give, not counting the cost; to fight, not heeding the wounds;
To toil, not asking for rest; to labor, not seeking any reward, 
Save that of knowing that we do Your will. Amen.

GUIDED HISTORICAL WALK
Recently Historians Michael Byrne and Mícheál Scully took a group of people on a very informative guided historical walk of the Killina area of Rahan. You can see some short video clips of the occasion in our library below.

RESTORATION OF TABERNACLE AND MONSTRANCE IN HOSPITAL CHAPEL
The Hospital Chapel tabernacle and the monstrance, normally used for Adoration are currently being repaired and restored due to an advanced stage of stain and tarnish. Both need to be dismantled, recoated and polished. This should take about three weeks. 
The cost of restoration is in excess of €1000. We would be very grateful if you would consider contributing to this work to ensure the greatest dignity is accorded to the Blessed Sacrament. 
The envelopes for this collection are available in the Hospital Chapel and around the Church. They can be dropped into the Parish Centre or the Sacristy in the Parish Church.

SPECIAL OLYMPICS IRELAND:

Special Olympics Ireland is a sports organisation for people with an intellectual disability, but it provides athletes with far more than the physical benefits of sport. Special Olympics changes lives. Through sport, athletes develop both physically and emotionally, they make new friends, realise their dreams, and know they can fit in. Special Olympics Ireland enables our athletes to achieve and win not only in sport but in life too.
