SHOPS AND COMMERCIAL OUTLETS

It has been brought to our attention that there are ‘signed mass cards’ for sale in shops and commercial outlets locally. We wish to bring to your attention again to the statement issued by Bishop Bill Murphy on Nov. 15th 2010 when Section 99 of the Charities Act 2009 came into force regarding selling ‘signed mass cards’ in commercial outlets ‘This is a practice that is not approved by the Diocese of Kerry, the Irish Episcopal Conference, the Major Religious Superiors or the Superiors of Missionary Societies. It is important to be particularly vigilant to ensure that a person’s good faith in asking to have a Mass offered for a particular intention would not be exploited by others for profit. Any appearance of trafficking or profit making from Mass offerings must be entirely avoided.’ There are very strict regulations laid down by the 1983 Code of Canon Law, (945 – 958) regarding mass offerings. As a Parish we are fully compliant with these regulations and the Diocese of Kerry. All masses that are not said by the Priests of the Parish are passed onto our retired priests and missionary societies. The Irish Episcopal Conference has reiterated that the practice of having signed Mass Cards or stamped Mass Cards for sale in shops be discontinued.

 

AUTUMN DUES (Yellow Envelope) Collection for the support of your priests is now due. Many thanks to all who have already contributed. You may give your Donation in the usual way using the ‘canary yellow envelope’ that is at the beginning of September in your envelopes box or you may use the loose ‘canary yellow envelopes’ that are at the back of the church, or use any envelope of your own and place it on the Offertory Basket, or hand into the Parish Office. Thanking you for your continued support and generosity.

IRISH CATHOLIC CATECHISM FOR ADULTS; A readers edition of the Catholic Catechism first published in 1992 has been just been published geared for the laity of Ireland of today. All of us were brought up Catholics but many people have lots of questions about their faith. This new book is a ‘go to resource’ for us and for anyone looking for clear explanations and apt examples of what Catholics believe. Our own Fr. Sean Sheehy has kindly offered to run a 10 week course based on the new Catechism over the coming weeks commencing on Wednesday, Septmeber 24th and ending on November 26th from 7.30 to 9pm at our PARISH MEETING ROOM. Because of the size of the room the number of places for the course will be limited to those who book first. Topics will include: 1. Humans Need Faith in God. 2. God comes to us 3. The Gospel Truth for everyone 4. Faith calls for a “Yes” – I Believe in God 5. The Beginning of Man and Woman 6. Good News: God sends His Son, Jesus 7. Jesus is the only Savior 8. The Holy Spirit, Spirit of Truth 9. Jesus’ Church – Reflects His light – Her Marks 10. Mary – Most perfect member our Eternal Destiny. We highly recommend this course. We invite you to fill in a book form which is available at the Parish Office over the coming two weeks so that we can order the Catechism form VERITAS, Dublin. The book costs €24.99. The Parish Pastoral Council highly recommends this course to you and it is open to the people of Listowel Parish and Listowel Pastoral Area. If interested in attending please contact Denise at the Parish Office.
