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

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Jesus allowed himself to be touched by the needs of the
crowd. When you are with people, what difference does it make to the way
you relate to them when you have empathy with them?
The commission Jesus gave the twelve ‘ to cure all kinds of diseases and
sickness’ is a reminder to us that we all have the capacity to be an
influence for good in the lives of others. In this we continue the
mission of Jesus (cf. St Teresa’s Prayer). When have you experienced
yourself as having a healing or life-giving influence on another person?
Who has had that influence on you?
At a first glance it might seem that Jesus made some bad choices in his
twelve apostles. One will deny Jesus, another will betray him and others
are only interested in who will be first. All of them will run away in
the end. This reminds us that all kinds can share in the mission of
Jesus, no matter how we see ourselves.
The instructions Jesus gave the disciples before he sent them out have a
note of urgency about them. What difference does it make for you when
you approach a task with a sense of urgency.
He also tells them their service should be ‘without charge’, keeping in
mind what they have received without charge from God. Remember when you
have received generous and understanding love from another.
THE HOOK OF FAITH THIS WEEK
This Sunday, 18th June, is the annual ‘Day for Life’ in
Ireland, England Wales. We have resources for this important day when
the dignity of human life and especially vulnerable life is celebrated.
We have a homily for the Eleventh Sunday of Ordinary Time as Jesus
summons friends who would share in his mission and continue it for all
times and places. The Lord asks us this weekend to ‘ask the Lord of the
harvest to send labourers to his harvest’ and so we feature the theme of
vocation for this year of ‘Take the Risk for Christ’. We honour the
Irish Martyrs whose feast falls on 20th June and also the joint feast of
Saints John Fisher and Thomas More on 22nd June. Finally, a video
explores the wonders and limits of science. Check out these and other
