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

On this Sunday, in the diocesan Cathedral in Enniscorthy our bishop elect, Fr Ger Nash will become the next Bishop of Ferns. He receives the Sacrament of Ordination and will be consecrated to the Order of Bishop. He be-comes the leader of the church in the diocese. He has been chosen to continue the basic mission Christ in the community of the diocese. A basic ministry will be proclaiming the word of God in a way that meets the thinking and culture of the present day. He will remind people of the basic call to be friends of Christ and to produce a lifestyle inspired and nurtured by the message of Jesus. He will emphasize the central place of the Eucharist in the worship of the faithful and in promoting Christian faith and life.

The new bishop has a primary interest in the pastoral ministry of the church. From his own diocese of Killaloe he carries a prolonged experience of parishes without any priest where one or two priests may have responsibility for two or more parishes. He recognizes the need for many more lay people to become involved in the work and ministry of the church, where the Parish Pastoral Council will be the basic agency of planning and action for the parish community. He understands that this cannot happen without education and training for those who engage in pastoral work. The challenges for the future are great. But a church community that generously co-operates and wants the best outcome for itself can do wonders in renewing and regenerating the life of the church. The future will be a time of priests and people working in close and loving harmony to realize the kingdom of God.

May God continually bless Bishop Ger and support him in leading all of us to the pinnacle of faith and life in Christ Jesus.


  • The Parish of Bunclody/Kilmyshall shall be a community:
  • Of renewed faith and commitment to Christ expressed in prayer and genuine Eucharistic worship where all participate fully.
  • With deep respect for and interest in each and every person.
  • Flourishing in love, care, support, co-operation, education and communication, building to the unity of the Body of Christ.
  • Reaching out the hand of welcome to all who do not belong to our faith and worshipping community.
