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

Pentecost was a major feast for the Jewish people. It was a pilgrimage feast and thousands came from various parts of the Mediterranean world to celebrate the feast in Jerusalem. It was during this feast that the Holy Spirit came on the apostles. It was as if a great wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were. Then what seemed like tongues of fire separated and came to rest on the heads of each of them. Fire represents the appearance of God in the Bible. So God touches each of the apostles and they are described as being "filled with the Holy Spirit", who is the third person of the Trinity. He gave them the power to proclaim the word of God with power and conviction and the many people from various nations understood what they were saying in their own language. People who, since the death of Jesus, were afraid and reluctant to appear in public became powerful and courageous leaders. There is a further account of a mini Pentecost which gives emphasis to this picture. "As they prayed, the house where they were assembled rocked. From this time they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to proclaim the word of God fearlessly." (Acts 4:31). It was the prophetic Spirit who enabled them to speak with confidence and conviction.

The Holy Spirit has some other roles as well. He gives us connection with Jesus, the Son of God and with his Father. All who are guided by the Spirit are children of God whom he helps to pray to Jesus and his Father. As the Gospel reminds us, this Sunday, the Holy Spirit is the Advocate, the Spirit of Truth, who "will teach you everything and remind you of all I have said to you." He will enable us to assimilate and make our own the teaching of Jesus and figure out how it can improve our lives. In Confirmation we were reminded of the Gifts of the Spirit – the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of right judgment and courage, the spirit of knowledge and reverence and the spirit of wonder and awe in the presence of God. We should also make our own the fruits of the Spirit, "love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, trustfulness, gentleness and self-control." These are all qualities that mark a good person.


On the great Feast of Pentecost, we offer prayers and re-sources in thanksgiving for the Diocesan phase of the Synodal Pathway. We offer a homily, newsletter insert and other resources on the gift of the Holy Spirit and the difference the Spirit makes to our lives and Churches. Siobhan O’ Donohue is a Wexford based teacher of religion. This week she is interviewed on the joys and challenges of exploring the gift of faith with young people. We have a video on one man’s amazing journey to the priesthood and offer a reflection on the life of St Colmcille. Check out these and other resources available at
