THOUGHT FOR EASTER:
Easter is a call to look at and to rise to a new way of life
Its a new way of looking at things
Its an invitation to see the daily resurrection in your life. The joy of a new born baby. The goodness of young people. Its an invitation to see the goodness within yourself. Its an invitation to look at the world itself with new eyes.

PADRE PIO DEVOTIONS         

Our May  prayer meeting  will take place on Tuesday  May 21st at 7.30pm.
The witness will be given by Adrian O’Connor from Cloghane, Castlegregory.
Adrian has an inspirational story to share. Adrians accident was so simple. He tripped and fell on the footpath. To his friends the fall was of no great concern.  However when his friends tried to pick him up they realised there was something seriously wrong.  His skull was seriously damaged on the right hand side and he was bleeding heavily.  He was in an induced coma and his brain was swelling.  Concern was raised that the jagged edges of his damaged skull could also damage his brain resulting in further complications.  The doctors gave little hope of ever walking and talking again.  The accident happened in December 2004.  Thank God Adrian has fought back and will be present in Lixnaw on the 21st to share his miraculous recovery and the support he got from friends and neighbours.
The first class heart bandage will be available for blessings after mass
