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

The first of the faults attributed to the rich man is his insensitivity to the abject poverty of those around him. When have you discovered that it is when you are aware of the needs of those around you and seek to make some response that you bring out the best in yourself?

The second fault attributed to the rich man is the way he ignored the word of God coming through Moses and the prophets. How have the gospels , the scriptures or your faith opened you up to a deeper and more satisfying perspective on life?

Some people look to the spectacular for a sign of God’s presence and action. For Jesus the lessons we need are not to be sought in the spec-tacular, but in the ordinary things of everyday life. Where have you found reminders of God’s presence in the world around you?

‘An authentic faith - which is never comfortable or completely personal - always involves a deep desire to change the world, to transmit values, to leave this earth somehow better that we found it … All Christmas, their pastors included, are called to show concern for the building of a better world.’ (Pope Francis, Evangelii gaudium , The Joy of the Gospel, No. 183)


The Gospel for the Twenty-Sixth Sunday of Ordinary
Time is the parable told by Jesus about the rich man and Lazarus. It is appropriate for the ‘World Day of Migrants and Refugees’ which falls this Sunday. A challenging reflection by Pope Francis is offered for this occasion which highlights the plight of millions of displaced people.
We feature an article on how the late Queen Elizabeth was a witness to her deep Christian faith followed by articles on St Vincent de Paul and St Therese of Lisieux, one of the patron saints of ‘The Hook of Faith’. We have light and wisdom by Lorcan Brennan and finally, Fr Chris Hayden sheds some light on recent NCCA documents that touch on the sexual education of our children. Check out these and other resources available at


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

  • With deep respect for and interest in each and every person.
  • Flourishing in love, care, support, co-operation, education and communication, building to the unity of the Body of Christ.
  • Reaching out the hand of welcome to all who do not belong to our faith and worshipping community.
