Saint Oliver Plunkett was appointed Archbishop of Armagh in 1669. He was forced to carry out his duties in disguise and often met with priests in “Bleekes Inn” in Dorsey. Eventually he was captured and was condemned to a gruesome death in Tyburn, London. Isn’t it wonderful that a saint has walked the roads in our parish! Now, as we travel along these same roads on a daily basis it is up to us to practice the faith that Oliver died for ! If we do not preserve our beliefs and our religion and pass them on to our children, what then will future historians say of us?
Prayer for World Elder Abuse Awareness Day:
Gracious God, we ask you to bless especially your children who have grown old. When they can no longer care for themselves, send them loving caretakers who appreciate their wisdom and the richness of their experience. Send your angels to keep them safe as long as they live and to lead them home to you when their work is done. Bless the families of the elderly with insight and good judgment. Send your Holy Spirit to help them make wise decisions and grant them the patience to care for those who once cared for them. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

NOTICE OF CHANGE OF PLAN: A pilgrim walk will take place to honour the 350th Anniversary of the Appointment of St Oliver Plunkett to the See of Armagh in 1669. The walk is also in preparation for the unveiling of a new statue of St Oliver to be unveiled on July 9th in St Patrick’s Cathedral, Armagh. The Walk will begin at St Peter’s Church, Drogheda the home of St Oliver’s precious relic on Sunday 7th July at 11am and finish at St Patrick’s Cathedral on the evening of Tuesday July 9th. There has been a slight change of plans for our section of the pilgrim walk. We will receive the relic at the Silverbridge end of the Legmoylin Road (beside Donnelly’s shop) approx 5pm instead of near Garvey’s restaurant. We will then carry the relic to the Drumalt Road, Bond’s Road and stop at the site of Bleeke’s Inn. There will be a short prayer service before we continue our pilgrim walk (approx. 3 miles) to St Oliver’s Church in Dorsey for mass at 8pm.
