Come and See…

NEW CHRISTIANS: We welcome Hannah, Ailbhe, Sophie & Julie recently baptised children into our faith community. As they join our community through the waters of Baptism may they also continue to grow strong in body, mind and spirit in the years ahead.

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! In February we will be looking closely at the call to ministry each of us have as a result of our Baptism. Maybe this new year is your time to get actively involved. There’ll be a warm welcome and plenty of work to give you whatever your calling!

INVITATION TO THE JOY OF LENT: If we truly give our time, energy, and attention to the practices of Lent, we will discover a new sort of joy. In fact, starting these practices during Lent can often change our habits in lasting ways that carry over to the rest of the year. Next week we will look at prayer.

TAIZE PRAYER THROUGH LENT: Each Friday of Lent there will be an opportunity to spend some time in prayer. It will take place in St. Kilian’s church Blacklion beginning at 8pm. All welcome.

TRÓCAIRE BOXES: are available from this weekend, they can be found at each of the Church Doors, please take one.

FIRST RECONCILIATION: Will take place for St. Laurence’s School on Tue. 3rd & Thur. 5th March, in St. Kilians Blacklion at 7.00pm.

CHARITY TAX REBATE: A big thank you for all who support the parish through the Planned Giving Collection. This is the only collection that stays in the parish. You can further support the parish by completing a CHY3 form. This permits the parish to claim the tax back on your donations to the parish. It is a simple process that can yield extra funds to support parish initiatives. Contact the parish office for further details. Thank you.

BECOMING A CATHOLIC?: Are you or someone you know interested in finding out more about the Christian Faith and the Catholic Church. If so please contact Fr. John after Mass or make enquiries to the Parish Office. We will begin our preparation for Adults wishing to be baptised or indeed make their 1st Communion or be Confirmed in the Catholic Faith at the Easter Vigil next Easter soon during the month of September.
