Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 22nd July

Where do I find a quiet place to spend some time with the Lord? Is there a monastery or an island that I can escape to, so that distractions are limited, time is given and He is met? Must I abandon my family, my responsibility, my job? Do I need to set hours or days…

Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 15th July

A common happening! We can be so slow to involve ourselves in events, situations and people’s lives. There is, all too often, the feeling that someone else will do it. Sometimes this is the case. Alas sometimes, not! We need at times to name names, assign tasks, put the shoulder (maybe even “my” shoulder) to…

Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 8th July

This weekend’s Gospel tells of Jesus’ return to his hometown and people’s negative reaction to “one of their own”. What is a prophet? Is it someone who tells the future? Is it one of those mysterious people who ask you to cross their hands with silver so that they can read the lines of your…

Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 1st July

I read about your work on the islands off Mayo and how much you enjoyed it. I wondered about you heading off to celebrate Mass and the sacraments on Innisturk and Clare Island or your visits to Caher Island. Your feet, between boat and shore, brought something very special and sacred. I stood at the…

Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 24th June

In celebrating the birth of John the Baptist, we are back in the place where the way needed to be cleared and prepared for Jesus. A wilderness had to be entered and a pathway made so that the Lord’s message could be delivered to all willing and needing to hear it. John was to be…

Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 10th June

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centred; Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; Succeed anyway. If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank…

Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 3rd June

This is a word that is very much linked with the Feast of Corpus Christi. The intention is to bring the Eucharist among the people and, in so doing, both give honour to the Real Presence and make the point that the Eucharist is not something to be locked away behind the doors of the…

Kilmovee Parish Bulletin – 27th May

A word of thanks to all who helped the children prepare for last Sunday’s First Holy Communion Mass. It was a worthy celebration of a major step in faith for the eight boys and girls involved. Many thanks to the members of the Parents’ Association who catered in style and welcomed all following the Mass.…
