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

Jesus welcomes the crowd, taught them, and cured those in need of healing. Bring to mind the ways in which the story of Jesus and his message have brought you enlightenment, and healing.

Today we are invited to walk in the footsteps of Jesus by welcoming people affected by Covid, displaced by war, or struggling to make ends meet. Perhaps in the face of these difficulties you feel helpless. So did this disciples and yet Jesus said to them ‘you give them something to eat’. They thought what had was insufficient but Jesus used the little they had to feed the crowd. Have you ever found that when you give the little you have to a situation, the results were beyond your expectations?

The miracle is symbolic of the abundance of blessings coming to us from God through Jesus. How has your faith in Jesus been a source of nourishment to you? What blessings have you received through your faith?


This Sunday is the Feast of Corpus Christi when we take the time to reflect on the gift of the Eucharist in the life of the Church. We have a homily, a newsletter insert and other useful resources. The Eucharist is about thanksgiving and Sean Byrne shares an article on the power of gratitude and counting our blessings. As we celebrate the feast day of Saints John Fisher and Thomas More on 22nd June, we tease out how our faith is a source of the moral courage badly needed in our time. We offer a reflection on the Sacred Heart of Jesus for this beautiful feast day on Friday 24th. Finally, as the World Meeting of Families opens in Rome, we have an address by Archbishop Eamonn Martin on how the family is called to be the place of formation and evangelisation. Check out these and other resources available at




  • The Parish of Bunclody/Kilmyshall shall be a community:
