Safety Notice.
We would remind and encourage all who visit our churches, to keep all your personal valuables and bags with you at all times, especially if leaving your seat to light candles, or going to Holy Communion.

Ministers of the Word and Eucharist
New Rotas are available in the Sacristies. Please collect them at your convenience.

Don’t forget that due to the very serious outbreak of influenza at this time, it is now advisable that, for the next three months, we discontinue exchanging peace by the shaking of hands at Mass. An alternative method of exchanging peace is to use the custom of bowing to the other person, or to simply pause and pray for peace. We thank our parishioners for their understanding and the Parish Council will continue to monitor this situation.

The Call
Will you come and follow me if I but call your name?
Will you go where you don’t know and never be the same?
Will you let my love be shown, will you let my name be known,
Will you let my life be grown in you, and you in me?’

The hymn “The Summons”, by John L. Bell, consists of a list of questions from Jesus as he calls each one of us to be disciples. Each one begins with the words Will you? The final verse is our response as disciples: ‘Let me turn and follow you and never be the same.

Today we reflect on Jesus call to the very first disciples. There is a simplicity to the scenes where Jesus gathers his first disciples. He issues the invitation to follow him, and the fishermen respond with a resounding yes, leaving their nets, boats, and even their families behind, no questions asked. In the opening chapters of Mark’s gospel everything happens ‘at once’ or immediately. There is a sense of urgency; the time has come, the kingdom of God is near, and Jesus needs helpers to work alongside him.

Jesus asks the same of us, his modern-day disciples: Follow me.

We are summoned too. We are challenged to leave aside our worldly concerns, see the world in a new way, and to begin a new adventure with Jesus. Tríona Doherty

S V P would like to thank everyone who gave to our Annual Collection and for contributing so generously throughout the year. We wish you and your families best wishes for the New Year. Thank You.
