Bulletin Sunday 4th August 2019

St Michael’s Church, Newtownhamilton

St Oliver’s Church, Dorsey

St Patrick’s Church, Cullyhanna

A priest I knew used to pray during Mass for – the next person among us to die ! It was startling and even a bit frightening because someday that will be me!! Sometimes we need to be shaken and brought to the reality that everything around us has a limited value and will exist for only a short while – including ourselves! Avarice means greedy – and when we are greedy, we lose sense of what it truly important and who is important. Greed can lead us to falling out with family and friends and even God is pushed out of our lives. So just imagine you are stranded in a desert for days and you are very very thirsty – which would you prefer – a large diamond or a bucket of water?


Last week’s envelope collection total:   £946.16  &  €128.20.
