Native American Prayer:
Heavenly Father, great spirit, whose voice I hear in the winds, and whose breath gives life to all the world, hear us, we are small and weak, we need your strength and wisdom.
Let us walk in beauty, and make our eyes ever behold you in the red and purple sunset.
Make our hands respect the things you make for us and ears sharp to hear your voice.
Make us wise so that we may understand the things you have taught our people.
Make us learn the lessons, you have hidden in every leaf and rock.
We now seek strength, not to be greater than our brother or sister but to fight our greatest enemy – ourselves.
Make us always ready to come to you with clean hands and straight eyes.
So that when life fades, as the fading sunset, our spirits may come to you and be received by you in our everlasting home.

Available at the door.

On Monday 7th October the parish of Rahan turned out in style to say 'Thank You' and to bid farewell to Fr. Johnny McEvoy.
Fr. Johnny is returning to his Missionary Order, the Columbans in Navan.
The Committee which organised the event, presented Fr. Johnny with the fishermen in their boat, reflecting the image of being sent as a missionary, called 'to be fishers of men'.
