    The First-Born of Many Brothers
    Lord Jesus, you came among us
    the first-born of many brothers.

    You have walked upon our earth,
    you have eaten our bread,
    your eyes have seen our light,
    your smile has lit up our faces,
    and our tears have dampened your eyes.
    We pray to you:

    Because you became like us
    in all things except sin,
    make us like you in grace.

    Send us your Holy Spirit
    that he may fashion us for eternity.
    May your Father recognise your voice in our prayer.
    May he say to each one of us:
    “This is my Son, my beloved:
    My favor rests on him!”

    Listen to us, Lord:
    we are your Church,
    we are your Body, and flesh of your flesh.
    You are our God and our brother,
    forever and ever. Amen!    (Lucien Deiss, Biblical Prayers)

    The Needs of the Diocese

    Bishop Cullinan has written this week to remind us of the Needs of the Diocese.

    Many existing services like Family Ministry, Cura (which offers crisis pregnancy counselling and post-abortion counselling) have to be maintained and developed.  New services like the development of Glencomeragh (mentioned in last weeks Newsletter) will require funding.

    Here in St. Oliver’s Parish, people who take the box of weekly envelopes will have already made their contribution.  People who do not have the box of envelopes can use the other envelopes provided near the Church entrances.  There is no need to put a name and address on the envelopes.

    The Bishop expresses his thanks for the on-going generosity of the people of the diocese. He is also aware that people coming to Church are often confronted by other groups who have a Garda Siochana permit to collect near Churches. There are many deserving causes but, if not known, collectors should be asked to show a permit.

    The Pope’s Intentions for July

    Universal: Indigenous Peoples That indigenous peoples, whose identity and very existence are threatened, will be shown due respect.

    Evangelisation: Latin America and the Caribbean That the Church in Latin America and the Caribbean, by means of her mission to the continent, may announce the Gospel with renewed vigour and enthusiasm.

     

    A New Departure
    Some people in our parish are familiar with Glencomeragh, Kilsheelan where the Institute of Charity (Rosminians) has had a Retreat House for many years.

    Bishop Cullinan has announced recently that Glencomeragh has now been given to the Diocese of Waterford and Lismore and a new work will start there in September.

    The house will now be designated as a ‘House of Mission’ and will be a place of evangelisation and preparation for young people. A number of trained people will take up residence at Glencomeragh and it is hoped that the young people who receive preparation there will go to the schools and parishes of the diocese to encounter other young people.

    Glencomeragh will continue to be a ‘House of Prayer’ where people are invited to visit and enjoy some quiet time in the church and in the grounds and gardens.

    Let us pray for the success of this new initiative, invoking the patron saints of the Diocese: Saint Otteran, Saint Carthage and Saint Declan and the Founder of the Insititute of Charity, Blessed Antonio Rosmini.
