FEAST OF THE BODY AND BLOOD OF CHRIST (CORPUS CHRISTI)
Sunday 14 June, the Feast of Corpus Christi, would be the day when the P4 pupils who had received their First Holy Communion would celebrate their final Do This In Memory Of Me Mass in St Columba’s Church Straw. As Bishop Donal said recently, please God the time will come soon when they can receive Jesus in the Blessed Eucharist for the first time.
There is however a sacrament the children received earlier this year in preparation for their First Holy Communion and that sacrament was the Sacrament of Reconciliation or First Confession.
We invite the First Communion classes in both parishes to join, via the webcam, with the rest of their parish community on Tuesday (June 9) for a special Service of Reconciliation from Holy Rosary Church at 7.30 pm.
In the absence of individual confession at these times, we all still need the grace of this beautiful sacrament.
HOLY ROSARY CHURCH
On Sunday Holy Rosary Church will open at 2.00 pm for private prayer and close at 5.00 pm. It will open Monday to Saturday from 11.00 am to 1.00 pm.

2020 SACRED HEART NOVENA
The Sacred Heart Novena will be from Thursday 11 June - Friday 19 June. Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is considered a symbol of "God's boundless and passionate love for humanity". Many have found comfort and solace praying the Novena, and this year we have particular reason as a community, a nation and a global people to find strength, patience and reassurance in God’s love for us.
The 2020 Novena is available to download for FREE from the Sacred Heart Messenger website.
Lord Jesus, you have said, ‘Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you’. I come to you in faith and trust, in love and hope. Let me know your closeness to me, and your care for me and all who are dear to me.
My intention for this Novena is dear to me, and I know that what is important to me is important to you. Hear my prayer (mention your intention);
grant what I ask, and may I always trust that in all that happens in life, you will be close to me as my friend, guide and saviour. And so, Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you.
