Youth Minister: Last year a youth minister was appointed in the diocese in response to a request at the last Diocesan Assembly. To fund this ministry it's hoped to have a collection during Confirmation on April 7th in Drumavaddy. This collection was introduced last year and taken up at all Confirmation ceremonies throughout the diocese.
Amazing grace! How sweet the sound T’was grace that taught my heart to fear,
that saved a wretch like me. and grace my fears relieved.
I once was lost but now I’m found, How precious did that grace appear
was blind, but now I see. the hour I first believed
I watch the sunrise lighting the I watch the sunlight shine through the clouds
sky casting its shadows near, warming the earth below.
And on this morning bright though and at the mid-day life seems to say
it be. I feel those shadows near me. I feel your brightness near me
For you are always close to me For you are always close to me
following all my ways, May I be following all my ways, May I be always
always close to you, following all your close to you, following all your ways, Lord.
Communion: Be Not Afraid:
You shall cross the barren desert You shall speak your words in foreign
but you shall not die of thirst, you shall lands, and all will understand. You shall see
wander far in safety, though you do not the face of God and live.
know the way,
Be not afraid, I go before you always
Come follow me, and I will give you rest
As I Knee before you. Chorus -
As I kneel before you, Ave Maria. All I have I give you,
As I bow my head in prayer, Gratia plena, Every dream and wish are yours,
Take this day, make it yours Dominus tecum. Mother of Christ, Mother of mine,
and fill me with your love. Benedicta tu. Present them to my Lord.
