Exam Prayer- Lord Jesus, As I now prepare for my exams, I ask you to grant me strength of mind and constant hope. Banish from my mind all fear, anxiety, regret and nervous distraction. May your gift of the Holy Spirit guide and enlighten my fragile mind. At this difficult time, give me the gift of self confidence and an assurance that you will hear my prayer. Answer my need and continue life’s journey. I ask this prayer through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Day Centre Church Gate collection will be held on Sat & Sun 26th & 27th May 07. Please support.

The annual mass and pilgrimage to the Hill of Kiltullagh takes place Sunday 27th May with mass at 4pm. I would ask people of the parish to support this pilgrimage. We honour the church on the hill where our people attended mass for centuries and which was the cradle of Christianity for the surrounding areas.

Congratulations to the children of Granlahan NS who received their First Holy Communion on Sunday last, also to their families and teachers. Many thanks to all the people who helped.
