Parish Announcements for Sunday, March 25th 2012

5th Sunday of Lent
Bishop Martin Drennan's theme in preparation for the Eucharistic Congress for this Sunday is 'the power of the Eucharist to renew our joy and out hope.'
  • As announced, the special collection for Trocaire will be taken up along with the offertory collection at all the Masses of this Sunday. This collection is to allow those not using a Trocaire box at home to make a Lenten contribution to Trocaire.
  • Next Sunday, April 1st 2012, is Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week.
  • This coming Wednesday, March 28th, at 8.15pm we will have our final screening of the Catholicism series with Fr Robert Barron here at Sacred Heart Church. The topic will be Prayer. All welcome. See post above.
  • The Easter Offering Envelopes which provide for the priests of the parish are available at the Church doors. They can be returned to the Church during the Sundays of April or May.
  • The clocks go forward by one hour tonight (Sat-Sun, March 24th-25th 2012). See post below.
  • We pray for the soul of the late Peter Cullen, Inishannagh Park, whose funeral took place in St Mary's Church, The Claddagh, during the week.
