Saturday         First Holy Communion Ceremonies for Rathbeggan National School at11.00am

      3 Weeks to go to the International Eucharistic Congress
Detailed information concerning the programme and bookings for the Eucharistic Congress on the Congress website: Copies of the programme available at the back of the church.
The high point each day at the Congress will be the celebration of the Eucharist, but each morning and evening Congress events will reflect on the bonds between the Eucharist and other dimensions of the Christian life. Each day a different aspect of the life of the Church will be reflected on: "Communion in One Baptism", "Communion and Marriage and the Family", "Priesthood and Ministry at the Service of Communion"", "Reconciliation in our Communion"", "Communion in Suffering and Healing" and "Communion in the Word through Mary". 
The closing Mass for the Eucharistic Congress will be held in Croke Park on Sunday 17th June. 
On that date there will be no 12.15pm Mass in the parish.
We thank our parishioners who have generously offered to host the students for the priesthood for the Archdiocese of Westminster and 5 staff members from Allen Hall Seminary, Chelsea during the Eucharistic Congress. 
Congratulations to the boys and girls of Ratoath Junior National    School who received their First Holy Communion on Saturday
