PLEASE PRAY FOR
We remember in our prayers all those whose anniversaries occur around this time and we also remember all who have passed away during the coronavirus pandemic. May they rest in peace.
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you in my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, please come spiritually into my heart. I embrace you now as if you were already there and I untie myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen
Based on a prayer of St Alphonsus Liguori

LENS OF HE GOSPEL
(1) Jesus helped the disciples to find new hope, but he did not give them easy answers. He asked them to see the facts before their eyes. He wanted them to learn from the loved experience they were having. As a parents, teacher, friend or guide, have you been a Jesus person to another, helping him/her to find hope and purpose in life by learning from his/her experience? Who has done this for you?
(2) The resurrection experience empowered the disciples to be witnesses. Unexpected possibilities for the future surfaced when it seemed that hope had gone. When have new possibilities opened for you after a ‘resurrection’ experience: recovery of health when it did not seem possible, new opportunities after failure or disappointment, inner healing after a deep hurt, etc? (Intercom) Fr. John Byrne OSA
Trocaire’s are appealing for parishioners to return their boxes to their parishes as soon as they can and if at all possible to change their coins into notes.

ON LINE CONTRIBUTIONS
In recent months some people have enquired about ways of supporting the parish. Many of you have done this during the months and when the churches re-opened. Looking to the future, the diocese has set up a system whereby donations may be made “on-line” to the parish. There are links on diocesan websites and the system is easy to use. People can opt to make a donation to the Offertory Collection and can choose to do so as a once off or repeated donation. They can also make a donation to one of the four collections taken up through the year for the support of the priest in the parish (Easter, Pentecost, Harvest and Christmas) and, finally, donations may be made to the Special Collections that are taken up in the parish and submitted for forwarding to the diocese, e.g. Vocations, Mission Sunday, Lourdes etc. The links may be found on the Diocesan Website the link is achonrydiocese.org/donateonline
