On this fourth Sunday of Easter we are invited to reflect on the vocation given to each of us. In our Baptism we are called personally to follow Jesus whether we are young or old, a parent or individual, rich or poor, or in Religious Life, God has called each of us to fulfil a special role in life which cannot be done by any other. Let us make every effort to be faithful always to this calling. We are asked to pray for an increase of vocations to Priesthood and Religious Life today. 
Jesus said, “The harvest is great but the labourers are few. Pray that the Lord of the harvest will send labourers into His harvest". (Matthew 9: 37-38).

Religious Ceremonies  From Monday 26th numbers attending funerals increase from 10 to 25 mourners. Hopefully this is the start of getting our Religious Ceremonies back to a new normal. We will keep you all updated on any changes as they occur, especially where Sacraments of Baptism, First Holy Communion and Confirmation are concerned. Thank You! 

Please drop your Trócaire box or donation to Anne, Fr. Pat or to Fr. Damien, at your earliest convenience. Thank You!
