Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 22nd October

Whose head is on the coin? They told him “Caesar’s” and he said “Very well, give back to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God.” Was this a discussion about the separation of Church and State? It’s hard to know but something important was being said. Whether this exchange was a…

Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 15th October

As mentioned a few times in recent weeks, the timing between weekend Masses is a little short when one priest is celebrating both. This will become more of an issue as we face into the winter and the possibility of icy conditions. This was discussed at our Parish Pastoral Council Meeting during the week. The suggestion is that we would schedule an hour and a…

Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 8th October

That’s what the man decided! He felt his son would be respected by the tenants and sent him in that belief. Alas, it was not to be. The son was rejected, mistreated and ultimately lost his life. It wasn’t what was hoped for. Neither was it what was needed. The tenants need only have desired to produce and share a sound and…

Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 17th September

I was at an All-Ireland Semi-Final once. It was in 1975 and Sligo played Kerry. I was twelve years of age. I’d forgotten that Sligo had to play Mayo twice (another year of replays!) and eventually became Connaught Champions by a 1 point victory. It was plenty 🙂 I remember going to Dublin with my parents and at least one brother, if…
