Eucharistic Adoration:


What is Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament?


And why is it being renewed in this Parish soon?


Find out at masses on the weekend of 14/15th November.


Eucharistic Adoration – Ruan and Dysart

Since 2012 Eucharistic Adoration has been taking place in Ruan Church each Wednesday and it now hoped to have Eucharistic Adoration in Dysart as well.  A meeting will be held in the Parochial House on Thursday 12th November at 7:30 pm when a Eucharistic Adoration Team will be on hand to offer advice and assistance with setting this up in Dysart.  The Team look forward to meeting the people from Ruan who are already carrying on the Adoration as well as any new people from both Dysart and Ruan who are interested in Eucharistic Adoration. 

Thought for the Week.

When someone dies

You don't get over your grief by forgetting,

You get through your grief by remembering.
