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
Monday night 8:45pm in Day Care Centre.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
‘Peace be with you’ was the greeting of Jesus
on meeting his frightened apostles. Who has come to you bringing peace
at times when you were afraid? To whom have you been able to bring
Thomas, doubting and questioning, is possibly a person with whom we can
identify. What positive part have doubting and questioning played in
your life? How have such moments helped you to know that your life is
worthwhile? How have questions and doubts strengthened your faith?
Note the way that Jesus dealt with Thomas. He did not give out because
he doubted. He accepted how he felt and led him along to see the truth
of his resurrection. Who has been that kind of teacher for you, gently
taking you where you were and leading you to a deeper knowledge of some
truth about life? For whom have you been that kind of teacher?
‘Blessed are they who have not seen and yet believed’. That requires
great trust. During the recent pandemic there were times when one
wondered if we would ever see the end of it.
THE HOOK OF FAITH THIS WEEK
The Church of the future will see frequent moments of
prayer in communities other than the celebration of the Eucharist. A
video explains how the Liturgy of the Hours is an increasingly popular
way of gathering people for the prayer of the Church in a way that
sanctifies time. The homily and newsletter insert focus on the theme of
Divine Mercy for this Second Sunday of Easter. We have features on Saint
Catherine of Siena and Saint Mark and look forward to the canonisation
of Blessed Charles de Foucauld on 15th May. Finally, an inspiring take
on the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus by Jordan Peterson. Check
out these and other resources available at www.thehookoffaith.com
