30th Sunday in Ordinary Timegreatest
Gerry Boyle PP.  046 - 9054138

We cannot separate love of God and neighbour; they are like two sides of a coin; they only work together.
If we do not treat others with compassion, then how can we say we love God?

Due to the second wave of COVID-19 the government has decided to impose restrictions on the whole of the country. There's a number of implications for ourselves: Church services cease publicly and move online; a maximum of 25 people may attend a wedding or funeral; baptisms are postponed; the churches remain open for private prayer.

In view of the poor internet signal in places, I offer Mass each day, along with the Mass
on RTÉ News Now, at 10.30am each morning (Monday to Friday). I will try to cover received Mass Intentions as laid out below. Please follow the guidelines for the benefit of all.

Mon.   10.30  Paddy Smith.
Tues.   10.30  John and Bridget Kiernan and sons Patrick, Louis and Fr Jack
Wed.    10.30  Special intention

Month of October:  Month of the Rosary

The Joyful Mysteries direct our minds to Jesus and bring our attention to events around his birth.
The Sorrowful Mysteries direct our attention to the suffering and
death of Jesus.
The Glorious Mysteries direct us to pray about all that happened after
Jesus rose from the dead.

The Mysteries of Light direct our minds to important
events in the public ministry of Jesus:
The baptism of Jesus.                    Mt.   3:13-17
The wedding at Cana.                     Jn.   2:  1-11
Jesus proclaims the Kingdom.      Mk.   1:  15
The Transfiguration.                      Mt. 17:  1-8
The Institution of the Eucharist.    Mt. 26: 26-30

Remembering the dead
November is the month when we remember and pray for the dead.
There will be services held all over the Diocese and country next weekend and throughout November. Bishop Deenihan will lead a service online from the Cathedral in Mullingar at 6pm next Sunday evening.  www. mullingar parish. ie
Lists of the dead can be returned to the Parochial House over the next few weeks. Mass will continue to be offered, for those on the current list, on the First Friday of every month. I will offer all Masses 2- 6 Nov for the current and new list.

Online donations
can now be made to parish and diocesan collections via the Diocesan
