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
The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light’…
Jesus applies this to himself and his message. Who have been the Jesus
people who have been a source of light to you? Have you been such a
light for others? His Message was a call to repentance, to a change of
attitude toward God, from seeing God as one to be feared, to seeing God
as a God of love. When have you heard that call in your life? What was
it like for you?
Jesus invited disciples to join him in his mission. In
responding, the disciples ‘left their nets’ to follow Jesus. Sometimes
we have to disentangle ourselves from other things to give ourselves
freely and wholeheartly to a commitment. Have you experienced being
‘enmeshed’ and being free? Where did you find life?
In v23 we have a summary of the ministry of
Jesus—’proclaiming the good news of the kingdom’ and witnessing to this
by teaching and healing. Who have been the people you have known who
have witnessed to the ‘kingdom’, the reign of God in our world? What
have been the signs that accompanied their witness? When have you done
THE HOOK OF FAITH THIS WEEK
