BISHOP RAY ENCOURAGES

REFLECTION ON MARRIAGE

“Marriage is important – reflect before you change it"  Bishop Ray says: ‘All of us know marriage is fundamental to the wellbeing and flourishing of society in every nation all over the world. For this reason there is a great need for everyone in Ireland to reflect deeply on the issues involved in the upcoming Referendum on May 22nd. As I see it, the most serious issue involved is that the Referendum seeks to totally redefine marriage. Let us all reflect deeply on the Irish Bishop's Statement. Where will marriage be in Irish society in two generations time? Please do everything you can to encourage full calm debate of all the issues involved. Avoid speaking in a way that is offensive or hurtful of anybody.  May God bless all homes, families, couples and marriages.’ More info: www.dioceseofkerry.ie  and martial at the back of the church.

CHURCH NOTICES

FIRST CONFESSION FOR PRESENTATION PRIMARY SCHOOL: Has been rescheduled for Tuesday evening next (21st April ) in the Hospital Chapel at 8.00 p.m.

PADRE PIO  EVENING MASS will take place on Thursday next (23rd April)  at 7pm. incorporating the Rosary, Mass and Benediction.

 

PREPARING PARENTS FOR BAPTISM:

At a time of birth of a child, parents turn in thanks to God, and reflect on the life of their child, and how they hope to give them the very best in life. In choosing baptism for their child, parents are choosing to hand on the faith to their child, and they are drawing on the prayer and support of the Parish community. While parents can be very busy planning for the day of Baptism itself, they need the opportunity to reflect themselves on what Baptism is, and what it means for them and their child. With this in mind, Listowel Parish Pastoral Council hope to set up a team of people who will help with a Baptismal Formation Teams. The idea being that as from October 2015 onwards we would ask parents presenting their child for Baptism would meet with a team who would represent the Parish community as we welcome their child for baptism. Accordingly, we need to train people who would be involved in these teams. Frances Rowland of the Diocesan Pastoral Team and Fr. Sean Sheehy invite anybody interested to a Meeting taking place in the Parish Meeting Room on Wednesday, 29th April 2015 at 8.00 p.m. All are welcome!
