Bunclody ICA - New members needed

It is 70 years since ICA was started in Bunclody. The guild has always been very active in the parish for all those years. We want to keep that tradition alive. But, due in no small way to Covid 19 and the demographic ageing of our members, we are desperately looking for new members to join our guild. We meet once a month and have a guest speaker. Sometimes have various crafts, etc at our meeting. We also meet once a month for coffee and chat in local restaurant. Sadly, if we do not get new members, we may have to close the guild. If you have 2 hours to spare, once a month, and to keep the guild open, which was kept going by so many wonderful women in the past.

Please phone 087 2805426 or 086 8135587

Marriages do break down, but in the story Jesus appears as the wise person urging people to seek first the original harmony where possible, rather than seek escape routes when difficulties arise. When you have found that, in marriage or in other relation-ships, the bonds have been strengthened when you have been prepared to work through difficulties? There are other things that we needlessly and wrongly put in opposition: young and old, male and female, people from different cultures, body and soul. Perhaps at times you have discovered the advantages of exploring the richness in combining such apparently exclusive opposites. The children in the second story can be taken as representing any group of ‘little ones’ whose opinion we may be inclined to dismiss. When have you found that you have been taught an important lesson about life, about love, or about faith by people whose views you had been inclined to dismiss?.

John Byrne OSA


This Sunday, the Church celebrates the ‘Day for Life’ which puts before us the sacredness of human life and the dignity of every human being. To mark the ‘Day for Life’ a new documentary has been released that tracks Ireland’s vote to legalise abortion in 2018. ‘Ireland’s Fall’ is a powerful YouTube video that exposes darker influences on the vote and its consequences. We also celebrate the 10th anniversary of Gianna Care who offer support and help to expectant mothers and families. The Homily for the Twenty-Seventh Sunday of Ordinary Time is offered by Sr Louise O’Rourke. Ibar Quirke reflects on the Feast of St Francis which marks the end of the ‘Season of Creation’. Finally, the newsletter insert is a beautiful invitation to trust with a prayer by St Francis de Sales. Check out these and other resources available at.
