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.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Zacchaeus showed himself open to the call of Jesus, to the surprise
of his contemporaries who thought there was no good in tax collectors.
Some-times the people who give us lessons in goodness may be people we
previously disregarded. Recall when this happened for you.
It was the eagerness of Zacchaeus to see what kind of a man Jesus
was, that opened him up to conversion. When you consider moments of
change in your life what were the interests or de-sires that prepared
you for change?
The decision of Jesus to eat in the house of Zacchaeus broke the
social norms of his day and scandalized those who saw him. When have you
found table fellowship a useful way of breaking down artificial
boundaries between people? When has a kind word had this effect?
Zacchaeus had become rich off the backs of the people, and they
thoroughly disliked him. Yet he was the one singled out by Jesus and he
responded to Jesus’ call. Perhaps you have also seen people who hurt you
and caused you pain change their ways. How have you reacted to such a
change? What has helped you to see the grace of God at work, and give
THE HOOK OF FAITH THIS WEEK
The Working Document for the Continental stage of the synodal process
has been completed and is now available to read. ‘Enlarge the Space of
Your Tent’ (Isaiah 54:2) is the title of the document that we are
invited to reflect on. We have a homily for the Thirty-Second Sun-day of
Ordinary Time by Fr Martin Pender and the Newsletter insert that marks
‘Prisoners Sunday’ this weekend when we remember those in jail at home
and abroad. We have an article on the need for new Irish saints and a
feature on St Leo the Great whose feast falls on 10th November. Jordan
Peterson talks about the meaning of the cross and finally, we have a
moving poem by Sean O’Leary on the reality of dementia – a disease that
effects thousands and their families. Sean dedicates it to his mother
whom he cares for. Check out these and other resources available at
