God in heaven hear my prayer,      
Keep me in thy loving care.     
Be my guide in all I do,     
Bless all those who love me too.  Amen

Mass Card

Every month hundreds of Mass Cards are signed in the Parish Centre.  It is a beautiful tradition to have the Holy Sacrifice offered for the living and the dead.  The card is €1.  The offering for the Mass in entirely up to you.  In accordance with the regulations set down by the Diocese a mass stipend is €10.  For every €10 a Mass is offered.  As it is impossible for all the Masses to be offered in the parish, the intentions are sent to a number of religious orders or priests who have worked here in the past, who are in a position to offer them. They are: The Columban Fathers, Dalgan Park, The Missionaries of Africa, Dublin, post graduate student priests in the Irish College, Rome, Fr Florin Bejenaru, Diocese of Bucharest, Romania, Fr Niranjan Kanmury, Diocese of Hydrabad, India, currently working in Germany, Fr Charles Kapupa, Uganda, Fr Francis Xavier, Diocese of Allahabad, India and Fr Edison Escario, Archdiocese of Manila, Philippines.  While praying for the living and the dead the Mass offerings are of great assistance to priests and parishes in very challenging circumstances.
