EUCHARISTIC ADORATION

In Holy Rosary Church, Monday May 14 commencing after 10.00 am Mass and continues until Mass at 7.30 pm.

PRAYER FOR LIFE

Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament on Friday May 18 in St Columba’s Church Straw from 6.00 pm - 7.25 pm.

REPEAL THE 8th REFERENDUM

The referendum that takes place on May 25 is also the day St Pio of Pietrelcina (Padre Pio) was born in 1887. Let us pray for his intercession for the protection of life from the moment of conception and that the vote taken on May 25 will continue Ireland’s long held defence of the unborn in the face of a world-wide campaign to discredit such protection as outdated.

On Friday May 25, the parishioners of Ballinascreen and Desertmartin are asked to come together for a day of continuous prayer in Holy Rosary Church, before the Blessed Sacrament. This Day of Prayer will begin at 7.00 am, when the polls open, and continue throughout the day until polls close at 10.00 pm.

Mass will be celebrated in Holy Rosary at 7.00 am, 10.00 am and 7.30 pm, concluding at 10.00 pm with Night Prayer.

On this Day of Prayer the 7.30 pm Parish Anniversary Mass will be in Holy Rosary Church NOT in St Columba’s Church.

This special Day of Prayer will require the support of many, young and old, as it is necessary to have at least two people present at all times in Holy Rosary Church when the Blessed Sacrament is exposed on the altar.

Please sign your name on the sheets provided this weekend, selecting a time you can commit to, so if any gaps remain we will have time before May 25 to get them filled. We trust that between the two parishes there will be enough support to cover all times throughout the day.
