Killeigh Parish in the Diocese of Kildare & Leighlin,

- a parish reaching back through history to the coming of Christianity to Ireland.
Marking of the opening of the Synodal Pathway across the dioceses
 
Pope Francis officially opened the Synodal Pathway last weekend in Rome and has asked dioceses and parishes throughout the world to mark the opening this weekend. Bishop Denis has appointed Jean Roche (Kill Parish), Fr Liam Morgan (PP Naas, Sallins, Two Mile House) and Julie Kavanagh (FDS) as diocesan contact people for the synod.
The prayer of the synod…
We stand before You, Holy Spirit,
as we gather together in Your name.
With You alone to guide us,
make Yourself at home in our hearts;
Teach us the way we must go
and how we are to pursue it.
We are weak and sinful;
do not let us promote disorder.
Do not let ignorance lead us down the wrong path
nor partiality influence our actions.
Let us find in You our unity
so that we may journey together to eternal life
and not stray from the way of truth
and what is right.
All this we ask of You,
who are at work in every place and time,
in the communion of the Father and the Son,
forever and ever. Amen.
