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.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Jesus meets the disciples for the last time. His final words give
them direction for their future. Perhaps you can recall such parting
moments in your own life—leaving home, school, college, or the death of
a loved one. Was there an occasion when the words spoken to you gave you
direction for the future?
Perhaps you can identify with Jesus in the story, when as a parent,
teacher, or in some other way you sent someone on his/her way in life,
knowing that you would not be with him or her as in the past. When did
the way you parted help the other to make his or her way in life?
Despite this extraordinary encounter with Jesus some of the disciples
doubted. Dealing with questions and doubt is part of an adult faith
journey. How have your questions and doubts helped to shape the faith
you have today?
Jesus commissioned this collection of believing and doubting
disciples to carry on his work. We inherit that mission today. How do
you see yourself as commissioned to continue the mission of Jesus?
Jesus told his disciples that although he would not be physically
with them, he would be with them in a new way right through their life.
Have there been times when you were reassured by the love and support of
another even though s/he was not physically present with you? What are
the things that help you to be aware of the presence of the risen Jesus
with you on life’s journey?
THE HOOK OF FAITH THIS WEEK
This week marks the 5th anniversary of the vote that led to the
legalisation of abortion in Ireland. The Irish Bishops have released a
statement that analyses some of the developments since then and
encourages people of faith to change the narrative around the tragedy of
abortion. We include Pope Francis’ message for ‘World Communications
Day’ in which he invites us to speak from the heart with truth and love.
We also include a recent talk by Pope Francis to farmers in which he
reminds them that they are the ‘first ecologists’ and outlines that
farming is not just a job but a vocation. We continue with the video
series on the creed and explore how single Catholics can meet their
Finally, we explore the life of St Philip Neri who teaches us the
value of not taking ourselves too seriously. Check out these and other
resources available at www.thehookoffaith.com
