The Holy Mass: Lest anyone persuade you that attendance at Mass is not important, remember what St. Pius of Pietrelcina (Padre Pio) once said: “It would be easier for the world to do without the sun than to do without the Holy Mass”. For fifty years he bore the wounds of Jesus on his hands, feet and side (The Stigmata), he truly understands that the Mass is the Holy Sacrifice of the Saviour on Calvary. Did not Jesus say at the last supper “Do this in memory of Me”. Have no doubts the Mass is really important in the practice of our faith. If we really love Jesus, then we won’t skip Mass.  

 

Ash Wednesday & Lent: The secular world, that is the world that doesn’t need the help of God, would like us to think of Ash Wednesday as “Give up smoking day”. For us, believers in God, it is a day to turn anew our hearts to Him and renounce some things we lawfully enjoy. Jesus gave up His life for us, on Ash Wednesday we want to do something special for Jesus.

Throughout Lent, as followers of Jesus, we try to focus our lives more on Him and on His great promise of Life Eternal in the Kingdom of Heaven. The Liturgy calls us to renew prayer, almsgiving and fasting in view of the glorious promise of Jesus to bring us to Heaven.

The secular world would like us to forget about eternal life and to entertain ourselves and to forget about Jesus and what He did on Good Friday. But the secular world leads nowhere, let us not be taken in.

 

Mitchelstown Parish Gathering: The working group preparing for the introduction of the Parish Pastoral Council have brought preparations forward. We are going to have three special evenings in March in the Parish: to pray, discuss, listen and share on our future Parish Pastoral Council.

You are invited to gather in the Presentation Primary Hall on Monday & Tuesday, March 9th & 10th from 8pm – 9pm. The Dominican Community, Ennismore, Cork will lead the Gathering (Fr. Cummins & Fr. Hegarty). On Wednesday evening the 11th March, we will have Mass in the Parish Church at 7.30pm and we hope some of the Secondary School pupils will participation.

We hope that Parishioners from Ballygiblin, Killacluig and Mitchelstown and all areas of the Parish will participate in this very special time for the Parish.

Following these evenings of reflection nomination forms will be distributed, to begin the election process. Please keep these dates in your diary and pray especially for the Parish at this time. It is a time to open our minds and hearts to the wonderful plans of the Holy Spirit for the Parish.

 

The Parish Office will be closed next Thursday & Friday, February 19th & 20th.
