    Give your Bread

    O Lord, we pray to you

    Give your bread, Lord, to those who are hungry,

    give hunger for yourself to those who have bread,

    for you alone, Lord,

    can satisfy our desire:

    O Lord, we pray to you.

    give humility to those who think themselves strong,

    for you alone, Lord

    are our strength:

    O Lord, we pray to you.

     

    Give faith to those who are in doubt,

    give doubt to those who believe they possess you,

    for you alone, Lord,

    are the truth:

    O Lord, we pray to you.

     

    Give confidence to those who are afraid,

    give your fear to those who have too much confidence,

    for you alone, Lord,

    support our hope:

    O Lord, we pray to you.

     

    Give light to those who are searching for you,

    preserve in your love those who have found you,

    for you alone, Lord,

    can fulfill our love:

    O Lord, we pray to you.

    Awareness Campaign  When an adult has a sudden cardiac arrest, his or her survival depends greatly on immediately getting CPR from someone nearby. From the moment of collapse, the chance of survival decreases by 7-10% per minute when CPR is not being performed. Hesitation cost lives.  We hope our simple campaign message of “Check, Call, Compress” will help save lives and improve the outcomes of those who suffer a cardiac arrest.

    Check is the person unresponsive and not breathing?

    Call Call 999 or 112

    Compress Push hard and fast in the centre of the chest until help arrives. 

    See posters at Church entrances. 

    We now have a Defibrillator in our Parish Centre.

     

    God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit

    God the Father,

    we praise you and we bless you

    because you are the Father of Jesus,

    and because you wish to be our Father also

    according to your love and mercy.

    Blest are you, O Lord, through eternity!

     

    God the Son,

    we praise you and we bless you

    because you are the Son of the Father’s love,

    and because you wish to be the eldest brother also

    of all the children of God.

    Blest are you, O Lord, through eternity!

     

    God the Holy Spirit,

    we praise you and we bless you

    because you are the love of the Father and the Son

    springing up like a fire out of their affection,

    and because you wish to dwell in our hearts also

    like a furnace of love.

    Blest are you, O Lord, through eternity!

     

    God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,

    we praise you and we bless you

    because you are God surpassing all praise

    yet you accept the stammering of our adoration.

    To you we direct our love forever and ever.

    Blest are you, O Lord, through eternity!

    Ireland is home to Catholics from many countries and where the Holy Mass is celebrated in many different languages. Migrants leave their homes in search of a better life and face the difficult experience of migration in its various forms. As Christians, let us celebrate the diversity all around us, reach out to and pray for all migrants to emphasize the unity of the human family and the values of acceptance, hospitality and love of neighbour today on Penecost Sunday.

    Prayer for Pentecost

    God, whose Spirit is known

    In the bringing together of those

    Who were once kept apart,

    You have announced good news

    In the very human accents

    Which have become most dear to us.

     

    And so we pray:

    Come, Holy Spirit,

    And celebrate in us that love of God in Jesus Christ

    Which need never be measured and will never run short,

    And for whose cadences you have given us,

    Without distrinction, the ears to hear.
