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 at least 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. (St Alphonsus de Liguori). HOLY COMMUNION FOR FAMILY MEMBER If you would like to take Communion home to a family member or a neighbour, please contact Fr. Jim. Christ is Born to us Come Let Us Adore Fr. Jim Walsh, P.P. PARISH NEWS: (098-41270) FEAST OF THE EPIPHANY: Thursday (6th January) is the Feast of the Epiphany and is a Holyday of Obligation. It is called “little Christmas” and was known in Ireland as Nollaig na mBan (the day when women could relax after the hectic rush of Christmas). This ancient feast ranks among the principal festivals of the whole liturgical year. It celebrates Jesus born of Mary as the Son of God, the promised Messiah of the Jewish people and a light to the nations of the world.
