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

In Sunday’s Gospel there are three wonderful parables that capture our attention. The first is about a man who has lost a sheep and goes in search of it until he finds it. When he does so he call in his neighbours for a celebration. But it carries a message. "There will be more rejoicing in heaven over one repentant sinner than over ninety nine virtuous men who have no need of repentance." God rejoices when we repent, when we return to our true selves having followed for some time a false way of life. The story of the woman with the ten drachmas is similar She rejoices with her friends and neighbours that she found the one she lost. Again we are reminded that there is rejoicing in heaven over one repentant sinner.

But the story of the prodigal son is one of the great stories of the bible. A man had two sons. One wanted his share of the estate so he could go off and live his own independent life. He did just that. He lived a life of debauchery and self-indulgence until all his money was spent. Then a famine arose in the country he had chosen. Now he felt desperate. He hired him-self out to a pig farmer to feed pigs and would gladly have eaten the husks the pigs were eating but no one offered him anything. But there was still some good in the heart of this man. He came to his senses and carefully considered his situation. "Look at the servants in my father’s house and they can eat what they want." So he decided to make a drastic change. He decided to go back to his father and humbly acknowledge his failings. "Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you; I no longer deserve to be called your son; treat me as one of your hired servants." So he headed home. When his father saw him coming some way off he went out and welcomed him. "He ran to the boy, clasped him in his arms and kissed him tenderly." Then he ordered a celebration which is also symbolic of how God celebrates when we turn away from sin and live as God has designed us to.


‘The Way we Were’ is a new book published by Mary Kenny. In a video interview, she takes a look back over developments in Ireland in recent decades and acknowledges the positive contribution of faith communities. The news-letter insert is an extract from one of the few homilies given by Pope John Paul I who was beatified in Rome last Sunday. The homily for the Twenty-Fourth Sunday of Ordinary Time explores the beauty of God’s love that seeks out and ones who are lost and wounded. We have reflections for the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross and the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows. Finally, we have the recording of the recent webinar on ‘Supporting Catholic Parents’ given by Fr Chris Hayden. Check out these and other resources available at
