Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 7th May

“I ask parish communities, associations and the many prayer groups present in the Church, not to yield to discouragement but to continue praying that the Lord will send workers to his harvest. May he give us priests enamoured of the Gospel, close to all their brothers and sisters, living signs of God’s merciful love.” –…

Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 30th April

Walking, talking and taking stock The good thing was they talked. Talking to others in times of confusion and grief is widely recognized as a crucial step on the road to acceptance and peace of mind. Though widely accepted, the great pity is many of us opt for silence. We go into ourselves, mourn apart…

Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 23rd April

On Divine Mercy Sunday there’s a call going out to us all to be kindly in our dealing with others, to avoid being judgmental or condemning. We are asked to hear again and again Jesus’ first words in nearly all his post-resurrection appearances: “Peace be with you”. Anything in us, about us or from us…

Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 16th April

If the women didn’t go to the tomb how could we have known it was empty? If the apostles didn’t run to the empty tomb how could the truth have dawned for them? If Peter didn’t bother speaking to Cornelius and his household how could a conversion take place? If the men hadn’t walked and…

Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 19th March

Last year, for the Year of Mercy, we had 24 Hours for The Lord in the parishes of our diocese. It has been suggested we do the same again this year so at our Pastoral Council meeting during the week, we decided to begin with an Evening Mass in Urlaur Church on Friday 24th March…

Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 12th March

It’s a sight to behold when someone “shines” on a given day. A bride for example, seems to catch all, even her husband-to-be, by surprise as she walks down the aisle on her wedding day. A child in a school play, who finds the lines and delivers them with enthusiasm and innocence, shines brighter than…

Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 5th March

In this weeks Parish Bulletin – How Lucky I am??? Did you ever get one of those emails asking you to share your bank details so that someone can lodge a few million euro in your account and, in return, will give you a percentage of the fund? What brought that on? You might well…
