Saint Vincent De Paul Hidden - But Still Among US:
 
Prisoners are easy to forget. Locked in institutions, they seem to disappear from society’s sight. But prisoners still belong to the society that incarcerates them. Most will eventually be released, and the experience they have in prison will greatly affect their ability to adjust to life ‘outside’ as law-abiding citizens.
 
The Society of the St, Vincent de Paul have a panel of people that visit inmates in Midlands and Portlaoise Prison. If you wish to be involved, please text 0860462405.

HAVE YOU EVER CONSIDERED BEING A PRIEST?

HAVE YOU EVER CONSIDERED YOUR SON or GRANDSON BEING A PRIEST?

WILL YOU CONSIDER IT?


Fr. Sean Hyland
In Fr Sean’s own words “If I had to up sum what
‘Whisperings of my Soul’
is all about, I think the first sentence probably says it best;
“When I reached the lowest ebb of my life, I called out to God and discovered that He was there for me””.
