St Patrick’s Church, Cullyhanna
Father, Son and Holy Spirit – St Patrick made a lasting impression regarding the Trinity when he spoke of shamrock having three leaves and yet it is only one plant. It is impossible to adequately explain who God is and how we can believe in One God and Three Divine Persons. But I believe in the Father as Creator. I believe in the Son as God on earth who went to enormous lengths to convince the world of his love. And I believe in the Spirit who is active every moment to help me understand the presence of God each day. I believe that the source of all love is God and that God loves every single person. That is Gospel – That is the Good News !
Newtownhamilton Apostolic Workers: A collection will take place in ALL churches after Holy Communion.
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.

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.
