The Baptism of The Lord                                                          8th January

Grant O Lord, that we may proclaim with our lips the good news

of his peace and love.


Please pray for the happy repose of the souls of John Egan, Terryglass and Eddie Hayes, Puckane, (brother of Gerry Hayes, Kilbarron) who died recently.



Bishop’s Conference and Commissons collection is next weekend.


SACRED HEART MESSENGER.  The subscription for the 2023 Messenger is now due, please give same to your promoter or leave into either Sacristies as soon as possible.


The Feast of the Epiphany marks the end of the twelve days of Christmas. The feast invites us to ask: what gift can we present to Jesus that acknowledges him as our Saviour? Surely the most appropriate gift is striving to live a life that imitates his teaching and example.               John Littleton – Journeying through the year




The Baptism of the Lord

This feast is a gentle reminder of the

way of life to which we have been called in

Baptism. It is a reminder of our own

baptism and of the coming of the Holy Spirit.


Pope Benedict Emeritus R.I.P Let us pray. O God, who in your wondrous providence chose your servant Benedict to preside over your Church, grant, we pray, that, having served as the Vicar of your Son on earth, he may be welcomed by him into eternal glory. Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever. Amen
