Next Sunday Will Be Vocations Sunday.

“St Joseph – the Dream of Vocation” is the theme of Vocations Sunday 2021. We prayerfully reflect on the vocation of all Christians, a call to serve others in our Church and world that is rooted in our baptism. More particularly, do you hear a call to the diocesan priesthood, the permanent diaconate or consecrated life? Speak to your local priest or the Diocesan Vocations Directors, Fr Raymond Donnelly, (Email: raymonddonnelly1@gmail.com; Phone: 028 (048 from ROI)-66322075), or Deacon Martin Donnelly (Email: deacon@st-michaels.net; Tel. 00442866322075 or email the National Vocations Office: email:  info@vocations.ie.

Every candidate and family, including the wider parish family, is invited to take part in this online.

 

Hearts On Fire! A series of video resources for the young people preparing for Confirmation, and their families and school communities, have been compiled for the Diocese of Clogher and are accessible via Hearts On Fire Confirmation Preparation – Diocese of Clogher (clogherdiocese.ie) Accompanying workbooks have been delivered to schools.

Adoration of The Blessed Sacrament

Eucharistic Adoration is a time to help foster a spirit of prayer, worship and adoration of Jesus truly present on the altar. From this Wednesday forward Adoration will take place in the main body of the Church to enable those housebound or at home to adore The Blessed Sacrament live over the webcam. We would also like to take this opportunity to encourage more parishioners who are physically able, to spend time throughout the day before the Blessed Sacrament in person. This is an opportunity for personal prayer each Wednesday from 10.30am – 6.00pm.

 

The Saints Encourage Us to Go to Adoration

“Whenever I go to the chapel, I put myself in the presence of our good Lord, and I say to him, “Lord, I am here. Tell me what you would have me to do”…. And then, I tell God everything that is in my heart. I tell him about my pains and my joys, and then I listen. If you listen, God will also speak to you, for with the good Lord, you have to both speak and listen. God always speaks to you when you approach him plainly and simply.”- St Catherine Labouré

 

Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Blessed Sacrament.  I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen
