This Saturday the 11th March we have the final Mass for those making their Confirmation at the 7.30pm Mass here in Peter&Pauls. We welcome the students, teachers and their families.

This weekend the 11th and 12th March the NET team who have been working hard with many of our young people in the diocese will be speaking at all Masses to inform all of us of the work they do. Their parish ministry has been a great opportunity to encounter lots of different people from the community. They have been speaking at multiple masses in different parishes to share their mission and meet the congregations. They have met and networked with different parish councils and will address all local parishes that week to share about what they are doing and present them with ideas of what they can do for youth in their parishes. We look forward to welcoming the team here and wish the every success and blessing in their mission.
Dear friends, Lent is the favourable season for renewing our encounter with Christ, living in his word, in the sacraments and in our neighbour. The Lord, who overcame the deceptions of the Tempter during the forty days in the desert, shows us the path we must take. May the Holy Spirit lead us on a true journey of conversion, so that we can rediscover the gift of God’s word, be purified of the sin that blinds us, and serve Christ present in our brothers and sisters in need. I encourage all the faithful to express this spiritual renewal also by sharing in the Lenten Campaigns promoted by many Church organizations in different parts of the world, and thus to favour the culture of encounter in our one human family. Let us pray for one another so that, by sharing in the victory of Christ, we may open our doors to the weak and poor. Then we will be able to experience and share to the full the joy of Easter. Pope Francis

Statue of Our Lady Of Fatima
A statue of Our Lady of Fatima, blessed by Pope Francis, has begun a tour of Ireland. In a celebration of 100 years since the Virgin Mary appeared to three children in the Portugese village, the three-foot-high statue started its journey in Armagh. A series of services will take place across Ireland to mark the jubilee year of the apparitions. Pope Francis blessed six statues to be brought around the world to appeal for prayer and reparation for peace and to promote the sanctity of family life. It was brought to Ireland from Rome by the Alliance of the Holy Family International with the Alliance of the Two Hearts Ireland. Members of the public will be able to pray before the pilgrim statue in each of the churches it visits.
