Thought for the Week

“Successful mother’s are not the
ones who have never
struggled. They are the ones who
never gave up, despite the
struggle”….. Sharon Jaynes

This weekend at all Masses in the Cluster we welcome Guest Speakers on the 8th Amendment.
“ The Eight Amendment to the Constitution upholds the right to life of both mother and baby. It is not about one life at the expense of another. It is about
cherishing mother and baby equally”. This is a very positive aspect of Irish Society and a unique protection which should be cherished. We really
need to stand up and shed light on what we have in our Irish culture, which is a very deep respect and love for all our citizens both born and unborn.

All people intending to have children baptised must complete the baptismal preparation course before each child is baptised. All forms for the above are
