Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 10th November

Everyone thought … that someone else was doing it! When we were in Dublin last Sunday, one of the things I noticed was that everyone seemed to have a job and the part played was very important. The director was a long way off, in a different studio, but was in constant contact with the…

Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 3rd November

At this time of year, we remember, in prayer and faith, all gone before us. The names listed on the front of this week’s bulletin and on the Boards of Remembrance in our four churches are the names of those whose funerals took place in the parish from November 2018 until now. Should any name…

Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 27th October

She asked me … “When are confessions in the parish?” It wasn’t an unreasonable question but the answer wasn’t overly-helpful. “Anytime you want” and then I added “but we don’t really have a set time in the parish”. This is the case, of course, but when asked that question, I feel a tinge of guilt…

Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 22nd September

On Friday, I was in Kilmovee School for a short Prayer Service. This focused on the infant class – four girls – but involved the entire school community and the parents/grandparents of the new class. It was a lovely gathering and I was happy to be there. I noticed a little video clip on Twitter…

Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 15th September

This story is found among other stories shared in this weekend’s gospel passage. It is a story well known to us and one, that many can identify with, having lost animals from their farms and fields. The search is intense and usually involves neighbours who are asked to help in the search. There is no…
