Castelcountess in the Side Chapel St. John’s Church. Wednesday September 26th at 7pm.
Do you know someone who is drawn to or curious about the Catholic faith? Perhaps you are married to a Catholic but do not share their faith, or you may have been baptised but never got the chance to receive Communion or to be confirmed? If so, RCIA might be just what you are looking for. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults [RCIA] is a parish process of invitation and welcome for those who would like to explore being members of our faith community. If you are interested or would like more information, please contact the Parish Centre during office hours

I guess we all get caught up at times with the things that are of little or no importance. We can all lose track of the values we have grown up with or the ideals we have inherited. In a world that celebrates beauty and power and celebrity we can become eager to become the best, the richest, the greatest. Instead of striving for perfection perhaps it might be more useful to strive for acceptance of the imperfect self? Margaret Theresa Naughton.
