Thought for the Week

Advent:  "the time to listen to footsteps -

You can't hear footsteps, when you're running yourself".       (Bill McKibben)



The National Audit of Child Safeguarding Practice in this Diocese of Killaloe will take place from 27th to 29th November. As part of the Audit every parish is required to publish this fact in their parish newsletter. The Auditors and the Bishop are inviting any person who may have been affected by abuse within the Church in this Diocese to make contact with the Director of Safeguarding, Cleo Yates on 065 682 8638

Bishop Willie is making a steady recovery from his recent major surgery. He has moved to a Nursing Home and requires rest and care for the foreseeable future. He is extremely grateful for the many prayers and good wishes he has received since becoming ill. It must be stressed that he is still in the early stages of recovery and is not allowed visitors other than family. It is vital to his recovery that people respect his need of privacy and rest at this time. Please do not put the Nursing Home in the embarrassing position of having to refuse admission to visitors. All enquiries should be made to your local priest or parish office.
