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 this Sunday’s Gospel Jesus tells the parable of an untrustworthy steward. He had responsibility for his master’s property. But he was accused of being dishonest and wasteful of his master’s property. The boss brought him in and demanded that he give an account of his stewardship of the property. His master made it clear that he had lost his job. So the man thought to himself, "What will I do so that there will be people to welcome me into their homes when I am dismissed." So he called in the chief debtors and reduced the extent of their debt. They did not have to pay what was required. The master praised his dishonest steward for his astuteness or cleverness. The Gospel suggests that the children of light or the Christian community should be as clever and wise in living a good life in this world.

Jesus suggests that his followers should be clever in their use of money and use it to make friends who "will welcome you into the tents of eternity". Jesus refers to money, "tainted as it is". This is a poor translation. The original text suggests that money is at the root of injustice, which is so often true. The big danger is that money comes to be venerated as an idol and dominates the mental powers and the energy of people in this world. "You cannot be the slave both of God and of money." If money wins out God is generally removed from the scene. Put God first and we will always win out.


Siobhan O’Donoghue is a religion teacher from Wexford who is currently working with Veritas on Religious Education programmes for Secondary School pupils. We interview Siobhan as she shares the joys and challenges of teaching religion today with young people. We have a homily for the Twenty-Fifth Sunday of Ordinary Time where the prophet Amos is angry and for good reason. We have news of a Parish Mission coming up in the parish of Wexford and a focus on the Pope’s intention for September which argues for the abolition of the death penalty. Finally, we have a CMT programme that highlights the great work of the late Fr Leo Staples. Check out these and other resources available at
