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 Jesus talks about endings, the end of temple in Jerusalem and the end of the world. Luke, who wrote his Gospel about 85 A.D could fill in the detail about the ruin of the temple which took place in 70 A.D. Jesus goes on to speak of the end of the world. He speaks in apocalyptic language about the beginning of the end. There would be revolutions and wars and earthquakes that would characterize the com-ing of the end. There will be persecutions and imprisonments and court cases, but for those who survive their genuine witness will be all important. People can depend on the help of God to help them in their defense. There will be even family conflict and hostility. What will matter above all is perseverance. "Your endurance will win you your lives."

It is good to think about our own ends. There will be the end of life for us all. It is good for us to think about our own end and what lies beyond the end of life in this world. It is the key to coming up with important wisdom about life. First, we truly appreciate the gift of life and use the gift of life to the full. We have various gifts and talents and we make use of these qualities to ensure we have a better life as we go and add some-thing worthwhile to the world around us. It is good that we come to the end of life with no regrets satisfied that we have done our best to make the world we live in a better place where we have added greatly to our own stock of life and to the lives of all who matter greatly to us. We rely on our faith in Christ and the hope this faith gives us of a complete and total life beyond this world in the company of God forever.


This Sunday marks the sixth ‘World Day of the Poor’ whose theme is ‘For your sake, Christ became poor’. We have a homily, the newsletter insert and Pope Francis’ message for the day. Our interview this week is with Sean O’Leary who talks about ‘Enlarge the Space of your Tent’ – the working document for the Continental stage of the Synodal process. An article celebrates ‘Science Week’ and the feast day of St Albert the Great on 15th November. There is a tribute to the work of prison chaplains and the submission of the Irish Bishops to the HSE on the review of Ireland’s abortion laws. Finally, a video interview with Bishop Robert Barron on ‘Religion, Politics and Intolerance’.


  • 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.
