An Appreciation: As we celebrate Easter, the Kilcummin Pastoral Council would like to thank the many people who have shared their time, talent and treasure. Thanks to all volunteers and ushers who sacrificed to keep our parishioners safe all through the pandemic, ensuring our gathering were always inviting, prayerful and hope/giving. Thanks also to the Parish Council and Liturgy Group who decorate our Sacred Space in front of the altar for all different occasions. To John and the staff at the Rural Development Office who publish the newsletter every week and who keeps the parish grounds in great shape. To Mike and Mary O’Connor who opens and closes the doors in our church every day of the year.To all those in music ministry and to ministers of the Word and Eucharist and to all who work behind the scenes. A big thank you. To our parish secretary and sacristan Siobhan who is so committed to our parish. We would also like to thank our dedicated Priests who are ministering all our needs in the parish. A very big thank you. We would also like to thank a Kilcummin family who donated a hand crafted linen cloth which we are using this Easter on the altar of our church.  It has been used during the last century for Station masses in a family home and a neighbouring district and it will be used in our church from time to time into the future, “as something beautiful for God”.

Waste Disposal: It is illegal to burn household or garden waste at home, in your garden or workplace. Burning waste can pollute the air by releasing harmful chemicals into it. There may be many toxic chemicals in waste items such as synthetic materials, preservatives, gels, bleaches and plastics. Burning of such wastes in low-temperature uncontrolled fires creates toxic and dangerous by- products which are not destroyed by the fire but become airborne on soot particles. These can end up being inhaled or being washed out of the air and deposited onto surrounding soil and vegetation, where they can readily enter the food chain. Please care for our environment by disposing of your waste in a responsible manner.

Prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

O most holy Heart of Jesus,

fountain of every blessing,

I adore You, I love You,

and with sorrow for my sins,

I offer You this poor heart of mine.

Make me humble, patient, pure,

and wholly obedient to Your will.

Grant, good Jesus,

that I may live in You and for You.

Protect me in the midst of danger;

comfort me in my afflictions.

Give me health of body,

assistance in my temporal needs,

Your blessing on all that I do,

and the grace of a holy death.
