Thought for the Week

“If you can’t fly then run,
If you can’t run then walk,
If you can’t walk then crawl,
But whatever you do
you have to keep moving”

St. Bridget’s Blessing
May Bridget bless the house wherein you dwell
Bless every fireside every wall and door
Bless every heart that beats beneath its roof
Bless every hand that toils to bring it joy
Bless every foot that walks its portals through
May Bridget bless the house that shelters you.

Cilíns (children’s burial grounds)
It is hoped to identify all the Cilíns in our parish and to commemorate the unbaptised babies who were buried there. Some are marked on the Ordnance
Survey maps but it is likely that there are others known only to people who live in the townland where they are located. If you have any information
on the location of a Cilín and would like to share it you can contact Linda (086 874 8845) or Frances (0876575578)

Live the Word
A New Year is always a great opportunity to make a fresh start. Perhaps there is something in your life yourself you wish to change or let go of. Ask
yourself “what are the steps I need to make to create this”? Change allows for great personal growth which will be reflected in your life or within.
