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

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
The ‘coming of the Son of Man’ can be applied to the end of the
world, to the moment of death, or to any moment of grace. We are not
given advance notice as to when any of these will happen, so the message
is to be alert and ready. When have you found that your alertness meant
that you were able to receive an unexpected grace (e.g. take an
opportunity which presented itself, or respond to a hint from another
person that you might easily have missed, etc.)
One of the enemies of alert living is constant busyness. Have you
ever found that being caught up in your own agenda makes you less
sensitive to what is happening around you? Recall times when you paused
in your relentless busyness and were rewarded by a significant
interchange with another person, a moment of grace.
You probably know the difference between being ready for a visitor
and the unannounced caller who catches you unprepared. Let the memory of
the discomfort of being caught off guard spur you on to a constant
readiness for the coming of the Lord,
THE HOOK OF FAITH THIS WEEK
This week’s interview is with Rom Bates from Ferns who talks about
the pilgrim route of St Aidan and St David that links Ferns with David’s
place of origin in Wales. Rom shares with us how doing the Camino to
Compostela changed his life and how he and others have been working on
this pilgrim project for the last few years. We have an article on the
spirituality of Advent, a beautiful Advent hymn and a homily for the
First Sunday of the season from Fr Martin Pender. We have features for
the feast of St An-drew on 30th November and on St Francis Xavier whose
‘zeal for souls’ drove him to become one of the most successful
missionaries after St Paul. Check out these and other resources
available at www.thehookoffaith.com
