PADRE PIO DEVOTIONS
Our May prayer meeting will take place on Tuesday 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

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK:
I expect to pass through this world but once,
any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature – –
Let me do it now.
Let me not defer or neglect it for I shall not pass this way again.
