Thought for the Week:

"Love our neighbours:  before doing anything else we must see our neighbours

 with our  imagination as well as our eyes;  that is to say, like artists we must see

not just their faces but the life behind and within their faces. 

Here it is the love that is the frame we see them in."     (Frederick Buechner)

Thought for the Week

When we chose not to focus on what is missing from our lives, but are grateful

for the abundance that's present - love, healthy family,  friends, work, the joys of nature,

and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure - the wasteland of illusion falls away

and we experience heaven on earth.       (Sarah Ban Breathnach, American writer)

Training for Lay Led Liturgy in Imeall Boirne Cluster

All of us are aware that we are living at a time of great change and that we need to prepare for a different kind of Church in the future. One of areas we need to prepare for is in the area of Liturgy. In September training will begin for lay led liturgy in our Cluster. This training will be held in Ruan Community Centre on Monday nights at 8 p.m. beginning on September 4th.  Because it is important that everyone understands what is involved, we hope that as many as possible will take part in the training, including those already involved in any kind of ministry such as Ministers of the Word and Ministers of the Eucharist and those involved in choirs or liturgical music. 

At the end of the training we hope to have teams in place in the different parish and church communities able to lead a liturgy in the absence of a priest.

The training will be led by Fr Ger Nash and Maureen Kelly.  


Youth Ministry:    Bóirne YOUTH Connect is being launched as a new faith initiative for young people following on from the experience of NET Ministries in our Cluster.

The Tractor & Vintage Car Run for Toonagh Hall & Sports Complex was very well supported last Sun. 80 participated, driving tractors, vintage cars and motorbikes. The Committee worked tirelessly to make this a fun event and it wishes to thank the following: Tom, Noel & Eoin Barry for the use of their field and the work they did on hedges, etc., Jimmy Guinnane for bread, John Burke who provided the milk, Meere's Pork Products, Quin, all who brought home baking and helped out in the kitchen;  Brian Coffey who manned the BBQ;  Eugene Casey for his sheep in 'Guess the Weight';  Keven Moloney for his tractor balancing machine; Total Vision who provided the big screen for the big match; members of the Handball Club who ran fun events and helped with stewarding;  those who collected registration and organised music and dancing and Toonagh School for allowing parking in its grounds.

It was a very enjoyable day out for all the family. The only 'farmerette' to finish the run was Clara Morgan from Dysart. Joint winners of tractor balancing were Patrick O'Gorman and Ollie Callinan.  'Guess the no. of sweets' was won by Darragh McDonagh.  'Guess the Weight of the Sheep' was won jointly by Pakie Keane and Barry Whelan and 'Peg the clothes on the line' was won by Mary McGuane.

Over €3,000 was raised which will be used for ongoing development in the Hall & Sports Complex.

 


Thanks from Claire. Claire McDonnell from Dysart, a student nurse, travelled to Tanzania during the summer to work with people in need in a hospital in the bush.  This local community very generously supported her when she ran events to raise funds for this trip and Claire will have pictures on display in both churches from her time there to thank the community and show how the money was spent. It is also going towards a hospital being built in Sinamajiro & will also help buy equipment to promote health care.

Thought for the Week

Never cease loving a person, and never give up hope for him, for even the prodigal son, who had fallen most low, could still be saved;  the bitterest enemy and also he who was your friend could again be your friend; love that has grown cold can kindle.

Sept. 7th next at 8.00pm in Crusheen

All are welcome to attend

 

Eucharistic Service: It is hoped to set up a group which would be able to lead liturgies and Eucharistic Services in Dysart and anyone interested in this may contact Fr. Pat @ 0862612124, Matt @0871757577 or Rose @ 0870610212

Ruan GAA


Summer Camp: The Ruan GAA and Camogie Club Summer Camp saw 110 boys and girls enjoy a great week of hurling and camogie last week from August 23rd to 26th. Killian Ryan was the head coach ably assisted by 12 excellent coaches, Roisin O' Loughlin, John Hurley, Sean Cullinan, Alice Mahony, Ashley Brohan, Paul Howard, Brian Roughan, Anne McMahon, Garry Bell, Louise McDonnell, Barry Heagney and Lauren O'Donoghue. The organising committee for the camp was Paddy O’Halloran, Mike Noonan, Gearóid Roughan, Ellen Jones, Paul Howard (Minor Club Chairperson), Claire McDonagh (Minor Club Secretary) and Francis O’Halloran (Coaching Officer).

A fun day for all the age groups was organised on the Friday where each child had the chance to take part in orienteering, treasure hunts and a very popular obstacle course race. Special guest was Clare Senior Hurler David McInerney. The camp was hugely successful and plans are already in place to run the camp in 2017 and the week concluded with a very well attended fundraising dance in Purcells Ruan where the money raised will go towards the cost of running the 2016 and 2017 Summer Camp.
