Holy Week Ceremonies

Rota to July 2024

Message from Fr Michael

Dear Parishioner,
We are people of hope. We hope for fine weather, hope for good health, hope for peace throughout the world.  The Christian faith offers hope.  Especially during these days of Holy week and Easter. The message is that Jesus died for us so that we might have a new approach to life believing in Him. The story of Jesus did not end on the Cross.  Here is a list of times for the Holy Week and Easter Ceremonies in the four parishes of Corca Dhuibhne.  I extend a word of invitation and encouragement to all to attend the Holy Week Ceremonies. As we journey through Holy Week in the liturgy, in a most extraordinary way it makes those wonderful happenings of the events surrounding the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, present to us in real time. They become present to us in the here and now. This is brought home to us in our celebration of the Eucharist where time past, present and future come together on our altar and, through one of God’s greatest gifts, we are present at all three of them. We will witness his Agony in the Garden, we will observe his betrayal by one of his close followers, we will view his trial and his scourging, we will accompany him on his journey to the Hill of Calvary. We will be there when he is nailed to the Cross and we will gaze on him in his last agony. We will honour him in the moment of his death and we will accompany his body to the tomb in the hillside. And then we will wait. We will wait and then with Mary Magdalene we will go to the tomb early in the morning to find it empty, coming to the realisation that Jesus is risen from the dead. And then our joy will be complete.

Holy Thursday Walk for Water in solidarity with the people for whom running water is a distant dream. People are invited to join in the Walk for Water, leaving St Mary’s Church at 2.30pm, walking as far as Garfiney Bridge. Please bring a bottle to bring back some water.

Prayer around the Cross will take place on Good Friday from 7.00pm to 10.30pm in St Mary’s church, dingle, beginning at 7.00pm with Stations of the Cross.

Tuesday, April 2nd is the100th anniversary of the installation of the Harry Clarke-Stained Glass Windows in An Díseart. To mark the occasion, Mass will be celebrated in An Diseart Chapel on Tuesday 2nd April at 10am.

Today Trócaire works in partnership with local and church organisations, supporting communities in over 20 developing countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East to bring about lasting change. Your continued support is much appreciated.

Fear is the deafening sound of war. Love is the hand that quietens it
Fear is the voice that is never heard. Love is breaking the silence
Fear is the truth that is locked in the dark. Love is the courage that feeds it
Fear is the hunger that starves all hope. Love is the food that feeds it.
As long as pain exists, as long as suffering is here, we will stay.
Trócaire. Until love conquers Fear.

 Wishing you all Gods blessings in the lead up to Easter and the joy of the Risen Christ throughout the Easter Season

Fr Michael



A Prayer for the Synod in Rome

Holy Spirit, breath of Pentecost, you send us to proclaim Christ and to welcome into our communities those who do not yet know him. Come down, we pray, upon the participants of the Synod and upon all who are present in this church, filling them with your wisdom and courage in order to be servants of communion and bold witnesses of your forgiveness in today’s world! We make this prayer through Christ our Lord, Amen.

Yours in Christ
Fr Michael
