Thought for the week

Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying, when there seemed to be no hope at all.

Week 2- Safeguarding Children

Each child shall be cherished and affirmed as a gift from God with an inherent right to dignity of life and bodily integrity which shall be respected, nurtured and protected. Everyone in the Catholic Church has an obligation to ensure that the fundamental rights of children are respected. The Diocese of Killaloe values and encourages the participation of children and young people in parish liturgies and activities that enhance their spiritual, physical, emotional, social and intellectual development and will work in partnership way with parents at all times.

We remember them,

At the rising of the sun and its going down, we remember them

At the opening of the buds and in the rebirth of spring, we remember them

At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of summer, we remember them

When we have achievements that are based on theirs, we remember them

As long as we live, they too will live, for they are now a part of us, as we remember them
