Whoever you may be…

A regular parishioner who feels truly at home here… A member of the Parish who hasn’t been here for a long while…

A visitor attending a Baptism, Wedding, Funeral, Confirmation or First Holy Communion… A visitor to the area staying with family or friends…

A fellow Christian seeking an oasis of welcome and prayer… A fellow human in search of hope, healing or consolation…

And perhaps, like most of us here, looking for Acceptance… Support… Understanding… Compassion… and Community…

Welcome! Fáilte!

Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus,
I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
come now spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there
and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
Amen.

A Prayer Labyrinth

……. is an external aid to prayer which emerged in Christian prayer during the Middle Ages. The most famous example of a Christian labyrinth intended for prayer is the stone labyrinth inlaid on the floor of the Chartres Cathedral in France.  However we need go no further than our near neighbour Milford Parish Church in Castletroy to find an example of a Outdoors prayer labyrinth.  It can also be in the form of a simple Finger Labyrinth seen below.

​Since a prayer labyrinth is an external aid to prayer, we can use it to help with forms of prayer that are already familiar to us, such as the Rosary.

Further information on how to pray using a labyrinth is available from the Diocese of Limerick HERE.
