Gracious God, your
Son Jesus Christ
gave us the confidence
to call you Father. We believe you care for
us. We believe also
in the communion
of saints. With
confidence we ask
St. Jude, patron of
difficult cases, to pray
with us, for our
special intentions....
Thank you, God,
for hearing our prayer.

Child Protection Statement

Love Overcame by Julie Palmer

Today I can complain because the weather is rainy,
or I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.

Today I can grumble about my health,
or I can rejoice that I am alive.

Today I can whine because I have to go to work,
or I can shout for joy because I have ajob to do.

Today I can murmur because I have to go to school,
or eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new bits of knowledge.

Today I can lament over all that my
parents didn’t give me when I was growing up,
or I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.

Today I can cry because roses have thorns,
or I can celebrate that thorns have roses.

Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped.
And here I am, the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.
What today will be like is, with God’s help, up to me.

  • *B.E. - BEGINNING EXPERIENCE*
    B.E. is a support group for those coping with the pain of loss of their life partner, through Death, Separation or Divorce. Few people are able to cope alone with the pain of loss. Do you find that you need more support than family and friends can provide? Seeking help is a sign of strength and self-knowledge not weakness. This is a healing ministry, which helps to resolve the grief that goes with the end of a marriage or relationship. Coping effectively with bereavement is a skill we can all learn. A team, who are themselves widowed, separated or divorced share their experiences with you. *Next Coping Programme will commence on Wednesday 7th September 2016 for 7 Wednesday evenings, at 7.15pm in White Friars Community Centre, Aungier St., Dublin 2 *For further information phone 086 0877379 or email bedublin@gmail.com or www.beginningexperience.ie

Well known Irish Charities, such as Enable Ireland and the Irish Cancer Society, who leave bags for collection always use valid phone numbers and charity numbers. Established charities, including the Vincent de Paul rely on clothes collections for vital income and are being significantly affected by the bogus collections
