The Feast of Christ the King We honour Him today as the Risen Christ the King. The title King informs us that Jesus Christ represents Majesty and is Lord of all. He is the source of goodness, light and hope in a world of darkness. As part of His kingdom, let us stand for integrity, right and truth. Christ came among us to reveal the truth and to lead us to heaven. Everlasting life and glory await those who follow Christ in hope and are faithful to Him. We might say this prayer today: Jesus my King, my friend and my beloved; Jesus my protection from sin and death. 

Sacred Heart of Jesus may your Kingdom come. Amen. 


Toonagh N.S. Clothes Collection Massive well done to the Parents Association in Toonagh National School who organised the recent clothes collection and to every one who donated items. Over €900 was raised for the schoo
