Thought for the Week – Discipleship Comes First
“Down through the centuries, in the tradition of the Church, it is clear that all the Baptised are called to be what Pope Francis now calls “missionary disciples” (active followers of Jesus). Another way of putting this is to say that, by Baptism, we share in the priesthood of Christ by offering the gift of our own lives in service. Those who are ordained to priesthood are called to exercise that same priesthood on behalf of the whole Church, by acting in the person of Jesus and offering the sacrifice that he offered. Being a priest is not just about carrying out certain functions. Whatever we do as priests flows from our relationship with Jesus; from being “with Him”, as the Twelve were, and learning from Him.”  Bishop Kevin Doran – Discipleship and Mission In Changing Times  (Pastoral Letter 2020)

Day for Life:

  • Day for Life is celebrated in Ireland this Sunday 4 October and will focus on the theme: ‘Choose Life’. It is a day dedicated to raising awareness of the meaning and value of human life at every stage and in every condition.  On this twenty-fifth anniversary of St John Paul II’s letter Evangelium Vitae (The Gospel  of Life), we renew the call for respect and celebration of all life.  The parish is a ‘family of families’ (Amoris Laetita, 87). We ask our parishes to be places of welcome, where we can support pregnant women and celebrate the precious gift entrusted to them. We recognise that family is often ‘a challenging mosaic made up of many different realities, with all their joys, hopes and problems’ (Amoris Laetitia, 57).  We want to provide support for women and men who face difficult circumstances, as well as those who have experienced abortion and seek comfort in the Lord and their community.  For more on the Day for Life 2020 see
