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

Jesus spent three years on his public mission. He gave much of his time to preaching. His main topic was the kingdom of God. He wanted his hearers to understand that God longed to have a place in people’s lives. If they had a relationship with him it would ensure their ultimate salvation. But he did not confine himself to preaching. When-ever he saw people in difficulty he sought to bring them relief and assist them to get back to a normal life. Most of his life was given to reducing the extent of evil in the world as it encroached on people’s lives. There was frequent reference to his casting out devils who were regarded as the influencers of evil.

Jesus realized that he needed disciples who not only learnt from him but also acquired the experience of conducting a mission like that of his own. So he sent them out two by two to preach and to reduce evil from the people they met on their mission. He advised them to travel lightly and avail of whatever accommodation was offered to them. They would give witness to the value of poverty and show a great reliance on God’s providence. A main focus of their mission would be repentance. They would stress the need for change, to move away from a lifestyle and culture of sin to a way of life that was marked by faith, love and justice. Their main aim was to encourage men and women to be good people who kept God and Jesus as a central focus.


Following the success of the national ‘Rally for Life’ last weekend, our focus this week is on the celebration and protection of life. We have an article and video by Bishop Robert Barron on whether it is possible to dialogue with legislators of abortion who refuse to acknowledge the moral problems involved. Also highlighted is the great work of Gianna Care in offering positive alternatives to abortion and support to people in crisis pregnancies. We have a homily for the Fifteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time and the usual newsletter insert. We have the fifth part in the series of ‘A New Irish Catholicism’ and a feature on St Bonaventure whose feast we celebrate on 15th July. Check out these and other resources available at:
