Mass Offerings & Mass Cards.

The best practice in regard to Mass offerings is for the faithful to buy an unsigned Mass card and have it signed by a priest they know. The person who has a Mass card signed in this way can be confident that the Mass will be celebrated and that the offering will be passed on to the priest who does so.

Pre-signed cards: The practice of having pre-signed Mass cards in the name of an unknown priest and then sold in shops or through the Internet is open to abuse. There is no guarantee that the Mass will be celebrated or, if it is celebrated, that the Mass offering will be passed on to the priest who celebrates the Mass. There have in fact been alarming reports recently that a combination of these practices has led to the public scandal of using the Mass as an organised profit-making business.

Recent death:  Please remember in your prayers Mrs Kathleen Reilly, Pullakeel, Carrickaboy, whose funeral took place in Lower Lavey on Friday. May she rest in peace.

God’s Spirit is in my Heart

God’s Spirit is in my heart He has called me and set me apart.

This is what I have to do, what I have to do


He sent me to give the Good News to the poor

Tell prisoners that they are prisoners no more

Tell blind people that they can see

And set the down trodden free

And go tell everyone the news that the   

Kingdom of God has come


And go tell everyone

The news That God’s Kingdom has come.

 Just as the Father sent me So I’m sending you

out to be,

My witnesses throughout the world, the whole of

the world

Love is His word

Love is His word, Love is His way,             Love is His way, love is His mark,

Feasting with all, fasting alone,                 Sharing His last Passover feast.

Living and dying, rising again                      Christ at the table, host to the twelve Love,

Love only love is His way.                         only love, is His mark.

(Chorus)                                                 (Chorus)


Richer than gold is the love of my Lord.

Better than splendour and wealth.

Recessional Hymn

Spirit of the living God, fall afresh one me,

Spirit of the living God, fall a fresh on me,

Melt me, mould me, fill me, use me.

Spirit of the living God fall afresh on me
