Sunday Prayer for the Faithful Departed: O Lord God Omnipotent, I beseech Thee by the Precious Blood, which Thy Divine Son Jesus shed in the Garden, deliver the souls in Purgatory, and especially that one which is the most forsaken of all, and bring it into Thy glory, where it may praise and bless Thee forever.  Amen Our FatherHail MaryEternal Rest, etc.

National Collection for the World Meeting of Families 2018

Will take place at all Masses throughout the country this weekend (10th and 11th November) which will be the Fifth National Collection for WMoF2018.  The overall cost to the Church in Ireland for hosting WMoF2018 comes to €19.4m.  To date €15.4m has been raised by way of local Church collections and other donations.  This leaves a deficit of €4m.  This weekend’s national appeal is to support the WMoF2018 and reduce the debt.  Your generosity will be very much appreciated.  Thank you.
