St Peters College Past Pupils
St. Peter’s College Past Pupil’s Union are currently involved in a
project with the secondary school to provide an All-weather, Astroturf,
floodlit training facility located behind the PPU Sports Complex. This
facility will be of enormous benefit to the school community as it will
allow PE classes to continue outdoors when underfoot conditions are wet
and muddy. It will also allow teams to continue to train when weather
conditions are poor and facilitate lunchtime class leagues etc. to
continue in bad weather.
We are conscious that some families have an association with the
College that may go back 100 years or more and other families are only
beginning that association. St Peter's College past pupils have a proud
tradition of giving back to their alma mater and supporting the future
development of the school. We encourage all families that have an
association with the College, past or present, to become involved in
this initiative and contribute to the fund that will allow us to
complete this project. In return for your donation, we will include your
name on a specially designed plaque that will be permanently on display
at the new facility when it is completed later this year. In some
instances, several members of the same family may like to join together
in making a donation and have their family name displayed.
All the details of how donations can be made are available on the
school website, or by contacting the school directly.

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
Meetings held Tuesday & Saturday at 8:30pm in Brennan’s Market Square
Monday night 8:45pm in Day Care Centre.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
The opening verses of this gospel invite us to ask ourselves what do
we see as our purpose in life? What are our priorities? Is our heart set
on material progress and advance, or do we have other priorities? What
has helped you to appreciate that there is more to your life than
earthly possessions and success?
At times one can sense in Jesus an urgency, as if he wanted to shake
people and wake them up to take his words seriously. The parable has
that tone: ‘Be dressed for action and have your lamps lit’. When have
you found that being alert enabled you to grasp a moment of opportunity
that you might easily have missed, e.g., when a child or friend gave a
hint that they would like to talk, and a very meaningful conversation
Another consideration that adds to the sense of urgency in the words
of Jesus is that we only have one life, and we do not know how long that
will last. So Jesus calls us on us to live in the now and to treasure
our time. Sometimes we can drift aimlessly through a day, and on other
occasions use a day purposefully. What difference does that make, if
any, to how you experience the day?
THE HOOK OF FAITH THIS WEEK
The Department of Education recently opened a consultation process on
the teaching of a new syllabus on Relationships and Sexuality for Junior
Cert students that includes the topic of pornography. But will it
include the mounting evidence of the harm being caused by this industry?
An article, video and the newsletter insert shed light on the concerns
being raised by parents. The Homily for the Nineteenth Sunday of
Ordinary Time is offered by Fr Rob McNamara who reflects on the gift of
faith – the theme of the second reading. We mark the feast days of
Saints Dominic, Edith Stein and Clare with articles and some of their
best quotes. Finally, an interview with Bishop Alan McGuckian on the
Living Stones of the Holy Land. Check out these and other resources
avail-able at www.thehookoffaith.com
