Congratulations to the Parents and God Parents.

Come and see Today is the 104th World Day of Migrants and Refugees, and this years theme is Welcoming, protecting, promoting and integrating migrants and refugees. In his message to mark the day, Pope Francis spoke of our responsibility, as individuals, communities and Church, to welcome everyone, particularly those who have been forced to leave their home in search of a better future.
Every stranger who knocks at our door is an opportunity for an encounter with Jesus Christ, who identifies with the welcomed and rejected strangers of every age. This is a great responsibility, which the Church intends to share with all believers and men and women of good will, who are called to respond to the many challenges of contemporary migration with generosity, promptness, wisdom and foresight, each according to their own abilities.
Pope Francis has spoken often of our brotherly responsibility towards our fellow human beings, and how our welcome ought to be a response to the Lords supreme commandment to love the other, the stranger, as ourselves. We all have opportunities to do this in our communities. In today’s gospel Jesus invites the disciples to come and see where he lives. He welcomes them into his home and they stay with him for the rest of the day. The example of Jesus encourages us to be welcoming, to extend a warm invitation, and to spend time with others in friendship. Tríona Doherty

New Bishop of Ossory
We would like to congratulate Monsignor Dermot Farrell as the new Bishop of the diocese of
Ossory. We wish him well in his new Position

World Day of the Sick Sunday
11th February 2018
To Mary, Mother of tender love, we wish to entrust all those who are ill in body and soul, that she may sustain them in hope. We ask her also to help us to be welcoming to our sick brothers and sisters. The Church knows that she requires a special grace to live up to her evangelical task of serving the sick. May our prayers to the Mother of God see us united in an incessant plea that every member of the Church may live with love the vocation to serve life and health. May the Virgin Mary intercede for this Twenty-sixth World Day of the Sick; may she help the sick to experience their suffering in communion with the Lord Jesus; and may she support all those who care for them. To all, the sick, to healthcare workers and to volunteers, I cordially impart my Apostolic Blessing. Pope Francis

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

A directive has come from the Bishop 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.
The handshake represents a low risk of spreading virus, but if people are uncomfortable about it, they can also use a smile or a bow. Those with flu symptoms are dispensed from their Sunday obligation to attend Mass. In such cases these people can honour the Lords Day by praying along with the Mass broadcast by Parish Radio, on Parish webcams.
SHARING THE CHALICE It is also strongly recommended we stop sharing the chalice at Mass at this time due to the flu. This is a far more easy way of spreading flu/ colds than handshaking. At this time, we would recommend that those who cannot receive the hosts come forward to the Altar with the Extraordinary Ministers after the Our Father is prayed, and receive the low gluten hosts available in both churches.

We would remind all Extraordinary Ministers for their safety to wash their hands before and after Masses as usual.
We thank our parishioners for their understanding and the Parish Council will continue to monitor this situation.

Active Retirement in Place4u. Re-opening on Thursday the 18th January.

My Grt Grt grandparents William O’Dwyer and Julia O’Neill I believe were married in St Peter & St Pauls church on 17 Nov 1850. I would be grateful if it is possible to confirm this is correct and where I can obtain Marriage certificate and birth certificates for their children.

We are visiting Clonmel in August this year and I hope to visit the church.

Thank you
