Thought for the Week
Kind words are short and easy to speak,

but their echoes are truly endless. - Mother Teresa

 

SAFEGUARDING    Learning from the past. In his Ad Limina address to the Irish Bishops on 28th October 2006, Pope Benedict XVI stressed the need to

(i) establish the truth of what happened in the past;

(ii) to take whatever steps are necessary to prevent it from occurring again;

(iii) to ensure that the principles of justice are fully respected; and

(iv) above all, to bring healing to the victims and to all those affected by these egregious crimes.

As a church we commit to this journey of justice, truth, healing and abuse prevention.

Please remember ‘Safeguarding children is everybody’s responsibility’

Thought for the Week  
'For every minute you remain angry,
you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind'
(Ralph Waldo Emerson)



SAFEGUARDING   Children have a key place in the heart of Jesus who said: ‘whoever does not receive the Kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it’ (Luke 18:17). This places a sacred obligation on the Church to ensure that children are welcomed, cherished and protected in a manner consistent with their central place in the life of the Church.

Please remember ‘Safeguarding children is everybody’s responsibility’

 

Next Thurs. is Alzheimer's Tea Day and a tea morning will be held in Ruan Community Centre from 10am to 1pm, where home baking will be served up with a cuppa to raise funds for the organisation. The support of community is much appreciated.
A new Alzheimer's Daycare centre and offices are now located in the grounds of Cahercalla Hospital and people are invited to visit on Wed. 4th May, for a cuppa, and also to have a look at the facilities on offer there, for which much of the funding has come from the support of these tea days.

 

Clothes Collection: A clothes collection will be held in Toonagh Hall on Thurs. 5th May. Members of the Parents Association will be on hand from 9-10am, 1.45-3pm and 6.30-7.30pm to take bags from people and should anyone need bags collected, they will also collect them from their homes. Monies raised go towards school supplies.

 

Ruan and Dysart Apostolic Work Society thank most sincerely all who supported them at their recent Annual display of work. A special word of gratitude to those who worked throughout the year – sewing, knitting, doing crochet, embroidery, rosary beads, flowers etc. We also acknowledge the generosity of all who donated sacred vessels, raffle prizes and our honorary members. We thank also those who prepared the Community Centre and those who prepared beautiful food for the day. We appreciate very much the support we got from apostolic members from across the County which included our Apostolic President Mary Duggan who comes from Bridgetown.

All money collected and the sacred vessels go directly to the missions to help with their educational and medical needs. Once again we thank you sincerely for all your help.
