November – a time to remember: Online for three Monday nights, Nov 9th and 16th, 8.00 p.m. – 8.30 p.m., Martina Lehane Sheehan, Fr Jim Cogley and Elizabeth Garry Brosnan will invite us to find hope as we journey through the month of November. Each night will invite us into a time of reflection, prayer and music, offering us a chance to rest and pray as we remember our loved ones who are with God, as we pray with our sorrows and find ways of living with grief and loss.

Beyond life’s struggle now – Patrick Sayles

How the season change,

how certain it is that summer gives way to autumn,

and the falling of the leaves and the passing of so many things,

and the tears of one who grieves.

Yet winter gives way to spring,

new hope and life after suffering.

Lord, so it is,

and as certain too the promise of new life in you

after life’s woes and pains.

For our loved ones gone

no more strains and suffering now,

beyond life’s struggle

there awaits the joy of your embrace.

Thank you, Lord. Amen.
