The members are open to hearing from anybody who has suggestions or concerns, or who would want to say something about the Parish. The present members are: Meta Cunningham, Michael Carroll, Mandy Dalton, Elaine Downey, Lazarus Gidolf. We would hope to have a few more members soon, and if anybody would like to join in, please contact any of the above or Fr. Hegarty (Ph 6125679).


Mass for the People of the Parish  Once a week (usually on Monday) Mass is offered for the Intentions of all the people of the parish. We remember especially those that are sick. Even if you can’t attend the Mass you and your loved ones are remembered.


Lost/Found  Various items umbrellas, glasses etc have been left in the Church. If they belong to you, please collect them from the sacristy.


Irish Cancer Society would like to thank St. Oliver’s Parish for their generosity to the recent church gate collection.  €219.50 received will go towards making a difference in the lives of people affected by cancer.


Feast of the Irish Martyrs  Saturday next 20th June is the Feast of the Irish Martyrs. Our Church here is dedicated also to those 17 Martyrs who were beatified by Pope John Paul 11 in 1992. We pray that we too may have the courage to bear witness to our faith.


Mass in St. Patrick’s Well  Newly ordained Bishop Alphonsus Cullinan will celebrate Mass in St. Patrick’s Well on Thursday evening 25th June at 8.00 p.m. This will be his first Mass in Clonmel. Everybody is invited to come along and give him a big Cead Míle Fáilte.

It is meant to be a “get-together”, as well as a fundraising event. Registration at 6.30 p.m. Sponsor Cards are available at the Parish Office or from Jimmy Moloney.

Glory to you, Father, through your beloved Son Jesus Christ, in the unity of the Holy Spirit!

Blest are you, Lord, through eternity!

May you be blessed, Father, because you have created me, and because the heart that you have given me you held, first of all, in your own hands! Blest are you, Lord, through eternity!

May you be blessed, Father, for the soul that you have given me, because your love has fashioned it in the image of Jesus, your first-born Son!  Blest are you, Lord, through eternity!

May you be blessed, Father, for the body that you have given me, because you will call it to live eternally in the glory of your resurrection!  Blest are you, Lord, through eternity!

O Father of Jesus and source of the Spirit, you who loved me in Christ even before the world was created, you who are the source of my whole being and the root of every good thing that grows in me: because I was born in your heart, let my whole life be only a return to you- to your heart, where I will finally know the peace of my heart.

(Lucien Deiss, Biblical Prayers)
