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

The commitment of Jesus to his mission is shown in his desire to undergo the baptism that awaits him. Have there been times when there was something you greatly hoped for, even though you knew there would be a baptism of fire along the way? What was it like for you to under-go such a baptism of fire and then arrive at what you desired?

Jesus recognized that the message he pro-claimed would meet with a mixed reception. This did not hold him back from proclaiming the Reign of God. When have you seen this kind of courage in yourself, or in others?

Jesus challenged those listening to him to commit themselves to discipleship, despite opposition from those close to them, even family members. When have you found that being true to yourself and to your beliefs required such courage/ what was it like for you when you were able to follow that courageous road?


We welcome a new writer on to our team this week with Lisa Jackman offering a reflection on observing the world of nature. In his homily for the Twentieth Sunday of Ordinary Time, Fr Rob McNamara shares insights on what it means to be a prophet today. We have a homily for the Feast of Our Lady’s Assumption on 15th August and dive deeper into the beautiful writings of St Bernard of Clairvaux whose feast day falls on 20th August. We have the usual newsletter insert and a video interview with Viktor Frankl, author of the classic ‘Man’s Search for Meaning’. Finally, Bishop Robert Barron spells out the three tasks of the Church – to worship God, evangelise and serve the poor. Check out these and other resources available at
