Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 30th June

This has become quite a week in Kilmovee Parish, with musicians and want-to-be musicians converging for days of sharing and learning tunes and musical instruments as well as singers singing and learning songs, not to mention dancers learning new steps.

It seems to be the case that they thought they could go back to their old way of life. The way of life they lived before meeting Jesus. You can see why – it is something they knew about and felt secure in. It had provided some form of lifestyle for them and helped provide…

Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 28th April

The second Sunday of Easter is known as Divine Mercy Sunday and calls us to a place of deepened awareness of God’s mercy towards us. Mercy is a word we often use but maybe we don’t always fully understand it. Where and when mercy is shown, God’s Hand is truly at work because it is…
