Social Justice Ireland have released the following interesting statistics. Since the onset of the recession the number of people in poverty in Ireland has increased by more than 100,000.   Today there are more than 750,000 people living in poverty in Ireland.  More than 57 per cent of those in poverty are people who are retired, students, people in caring roles, people who are ill or people with a disability. If Government wishes to address and close this divide future policy must prioritise those at the bottom of the income distribution.  These policies must be designed to address the wide variety of households and adults in poverty. We, as Church have a voice in this. Killaloe Diocese JPIC committee encourages you to write to your local politician and local representatives to ensure they are working hard to alleviate this issue.

Race Nite for Toonagh School:  The Board of Management & Parents Association of Toonagh School are embarking on a project to convert the grass playing field at the rear of the school, which is waterlogged for many months of the year,  to an 'all weather facility' which will enable the children to take part in physical activities throughout the school year.
Representatives will call to businesses in the local and surrounding areas over the next few weeks, looking for their support for a fundraising Race Nite to be held in Hotel Woodstock on July 8th next. While acknowledging that these are challenging times for people running a business, nevertheless, it is hoped that there will be a good response for the venture, which will ensure that the children attending Toonagh School now, and into the future, will get full use of all the facilities the school has to offer, indoor and outdoor. Parents have cards, should anyone wish to buy a horse.

Thought for the week

There's a Reason For every pain that we must bear,

For every burden, every care -

There's a reason.

For every grief that bows the knee,

For every teardrop that is shed -

There's a reason.

For every hurt, for every plight,

For every lonely, pain-racked night -

There's a reason.

But if we trust God as we should,

All this must work out for our good.

He knows the reason.

Thought for the Week

My God, I give you this day.

I offer You now all of the good that I shall do

And I promise to accept, for love of You,

All of the difficulty that I shall meet.

Help me to conduct myself during this day

In a manner pleasing to You.

Amen.

(Francis De Sales)

Thought for the Week

God has not promised skies always blue,
flower-strewn pathways all our lives through;
God has not promised sun without rain,
Joy without sorrow, peace without pain.
But God has promised strength for the day,
Rest for the labour, light for the way,
Grace for trials, help from above,
Unfailing sympathy, undying love.
(Annie Johnson Flint)
