Exam Prayer



Prayer Before an Exam

Lord, thank you that you are with me right now
Your love surpasses all fear
I give you the anxiety I feel
I surrender all my worries to you
Clear my mind
Calm my heart
Still my Spirit
Relax my being                          
That I may always glorify you
In everything I write, speak and do. 
                                         Amen.          

World Meeting of Families 2018




Some months ago Pope Francis decided that Dublin would be the venue for the World Meeting of Families in 2018.  Ireland is privileged to have been asked to host the event.  After the experience of hosting the Eucharistic Congress we are confident that the World Meeting of Families will bear lasting fruit for the Church in Ireland and for all who come from over seas for the Meeting.    

It will be necessary to generate funds to meet the expenses involved, therefore it has been decided to hold a national Church collection each year, 2016, 2017, & 2018. 

 The first of these collections will be held in all churches, weekend of May 28th/29th 2016.
