November is traditionally dedicated as the Month of the Holy Souls when we pray in a special way for family members/ relatives/ friends who are no longer with us. Indeed the church in its pilgrim members, from the very earliest days of the Christian religion, has honoured with great respect the memory of the dead; and “because it is a holy and a wholesome thought to pray for the dead that they might be loosed from their sins” (2 Mac) she offers her suffrages for them
The sheets and envelopes for the Lists of the Dead are available at the back of the church. We ask you to please fill them in and return them to the box at the back of the church before early November.

                      Trócaire's Response to Ebola Crisis

Trócaire is working through Church networks in West Africa to tackle the spread of the Ebola virus and to support those affected by the crisis. The agency's initial response is focused on raising awareness of how to reduce the risk of infection. Trócaire is also helping to provide food and counselling to families affected by the virus. The region is likely to experience food shortages over the coming months as a result of the disruption to the planting and harvesting seasons. Trócaire will be assisting communities to overcome food shortages in the months ahead. People in Ireland can support this work by donating directly on or by phoning 1850 408 408
