Today the altar is mobbed by vegetables arraigned and arranged for the giving of glory, fruit of the earth and work of human hands. A riotous spectacle of ordinariness stops entering worshippers in their tracks, stealing a little of their breath away. Gathered and gatherers sing the Giver’s praises in the gentle glory of an October day. (On this Harvest Sunday we will give thanks for the harvest and the produce of the earth. Thanks to all in our parish, local farmers and businesses who contributed to our display. Thanks too to the members of the Altar Society who prepared the display for our Masses this weekend. After the 12.15pm Mass, the goods of our display will be brought to Brother Kevin of the Capuchin Day Centre for the homeless) ************************************************************************************************* Incoming Junior Infants 2018.
