FEASTS OF THE WEEK

Monday 11: Our Lady of Lourdes.

On this day in 1858, Mary, the Mother of God first appeared to Bernadette Soubirous at the grotto of Massabielle. In 1992 Pope John Paul II instituted the World Day of the Sick on the commemoration of Our Lady of Lourdes.

Thursday 14: St Cyril and St Methodius.

Brothers from Thessalonica in Greece. They were declared Patrons of Europe by Pope John Paul II in 1980.

Friday 15: Worldwide Day of Prayer for Survivors and Victims of Sexual Abuse. Please continue to pray for all survivors and victims, so that they can leave the past behind and embrace the future, healed and restored.

ST COLUMBA'S CHURCH, STRAW

The process to obtain a grant for the replacing of the church roof in Straw is ongoing and hopefully the application, when it is made, will be successful.

In the meantime, the provision of another toilet at Straw began last week. This entails a re-organising of the entire sacristy area of the church. Consequently, for health and safety reasons, there will be no Sunday Mass in St Columba’s Church Straw on the following dates: February 17, February 24 and March 3. Celebration of Sunday Mass at 11.00 am in St Columba’s will resume on Sunday March 10.

While this work is being completed the Friday evening Parish Anniversary Mass will take place in St Eugene’s Church, Moneyneena at 7.30 pm starting next Friday 15 February.

RETIREMENT OF SACRISTAN

The priests of the parish wish to take this opportunity to thank Teresa McGuigan who recently retired as Sacristan of St Columba’s Church, Straw. Teresa has given 20 years of dedicated service as Sacristan.

On behalf of all parishioners we thank Teresa for her commitment to St Columba’s Church and for the time she gave over and above what was expected these past 20 years.

LOURDES HOSPITALITÉ

The second collection this weekend will be taken up in support of Lourdes Hospitalité, the Derry Diocesan Lourdes Pilgrimage Group who provide proper care and assistance for the sick who go to Lourdes each July on the Derry Diocesan Pilgrimage.
