Parish Pastoral Council Report:
Parish Pilgrimage to Lourdes:- We decided to organise a pilgrimage to Lourdes towards the end of August 2015.
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament:- Following the wish of Bishop Denis to promote this form of devotion and prayer, we will have Adoration for one hour before First Friday Masses in Killeigh.
Ministers of the Eucharist: Three people are available in the Killeigh church area and one in the Raheen church area. It was decided to ask for volunteers on the Newsletter.
It was also decided to see if the Ballinagar rota can fit the 5 week rota of other churches.
Safeguarding: Parish Safeguarding Reps, Choir members, parish hall committee people and sacristans, attended an information session on Safe practices.
A.O.B. Concern was expressed how no parking slots were left for family members at two recent funerals at Ballinagar.
It was decided to pray, on one weekend in November, for the deceased members of choirs and their family members, in all three churches.
It was decided to have Mass in November for parents whose baby died before during or since birth, especially for those who never got to name their child.
Headstones for former Priests of the parish need to be cleaned.
In the light of the Dominican withdrawal from five churches across the country, we had a long discussion about future possibilities in our parish in the light of fewer priests. Real decisions will have to be made at another time. Fr. John urged that we pray for Vocations to Priesthood and to Religious Life.
Next meeting:- Mon 13th Oct at 8pm

Prayer to our Blessed Lady.

Take my hand O Blessed Mother
Hold it firmly least I fall
I am nervous when I’m walking
And to thee I humbly call.

Guide me over every crossing
Watch me when I’m on the stairs
Let me know you are beside me
Listen to my fervent prayer.

Bring me to my destination
Safely every single day
Help me with my undertaking
As the hours they pass away.

And when evening falls upon me
And I fear to be alone
Take my hand O Blessed Mother
Once again lead me home.
Amen.
