MISSION SUNDAY gives us all the opportunity to reflect on our baptismal call to bring Christ to others, which is a privilege in itself. The gift we have been given, we are asked to give. Our gift to the world is the joy of the Gospel and our Irish missionaries continue to bring the Good News to people throughout the world. World Missions Ireland, the working title of the four Pontifical mission societies organises the Mission Sunday collection in all Churches nationwide. The theme this year is” Every Christian is a Missionary”. The Offertory collection at Masses today will be for the Propagation of the Faith.
BINGO in aid of Church funds takes place today Sunday 23rd October at 3pm in the Darnley Lodge Hotel.
LIST OF THE DEAD ENVELOPES have been distributed with the box of envelopes and are also available at the back of all the Churches and should be returned before November 1st. Masses on All Soul’s Day, November 2nd and on First Fridays throughout the year are offered for those who are on the Parish List of the Dead.
VIGIL FOR THE HOLY SOULS: There is Eucharistic Adoration on Tuesday evening November 1st after Mass (approx. 8pm) through the night, finishing with the 9.30am Mass on Wednesday morning. Everyone is welcome to come to pray for their loved ones. There is a book outside the Adoration Room which you can sign, when you decide what hour you would like to spend with the Blessed Sacrament.
