Love them both: As we all know we are to vote next Friday.  We pray to the Holy Spirit for guidance as we know the precious gift of life is from the first moment of conception until the moment of natural death.  Archbishop Eamonn Martin has asked that when you go to the booth to vote to think of these words ‘from the first moment of life’ and also ‘think of two lives – the mother and her baby’.  Choose life for them both.

Congratulations to our Holy Communion children from Scoil Eoin Baiste who received the Bread of Life on Saturday.  Thanks to the parents for their co-operation with the ‘do this in memory of me programme’, the teachers and the church sacristan.
