Thought for the week


Lent stimulates us to let the Word of God penetrate our life and in this way to know

the fundamental truth: who we are, where we come from, where we must go,

what the path we must take in life.         Benedict XVI.

Youth Mass

March 12th will be the first Youth Mass within the Ruan and Dysart Parish, it will be held in Ruan at the 10am Mass.  We would like to have youth involved in the Mass as much as possible, and therefore will be having a practice before hand on Thursday the 9th of March, at 7pm in Ruan parish hall.  Anyone interested in helping us please come out.

Where is your life going? What’s the meaning of my life?  They are free of charge and will be given by a team formed by Fr. Ger and lay people from the Neo-catechumenal Way, with the purpose to let us listen again the Good News of the Mercy of God for us. You are welcome to come and Listen to all or any.
