  • MUSINGS: Our Psalm today recalls the yearnings of the Jewish people for Zion (Jerusalem) during their period of exile in Babylon after the destruction of the temple in 597BC. Their captors mockingly ask them to sing one of ‘Zion’s songs’. But it is not easy to find the heart to sing while living on foreign soil. Let’s remember all our emigrants today, many of whom have relocated abroad simply out of necessity. ‘I haven’t seen my family in over two years’, one Irish immigrant in Australia remarked, ‘we try to Skype as much as possible, but sometimes you would just love to give your loved ones back home a big hug and be hugged back.’.

    St. Naile’s Church, Kinawley: 3rd Sunday of the month.

The Baptismal course which takes place on the Wednesday after the first Sunday is compulsory for all. The dates of the courses are published in the weekly newsletter and also on the parish website. Even if parents have done the course for their first child, the parents or someone from the family is expected to do it for subsequent children – e.g. godparernts or other family members.
