Kilcummin Looking Good: We would like to thank all the people who have volunteered to go out and collect rubbish on the roads in their area, it is inspiring to see such wonderful community spirit in our Parish. We are aware that the issue of dog fouling is a major problem in the Village at present. We would like to remind everybody that it is an offence to let a dog under your control foul in a public place. If it does happen, you must remove the faeces and dispose of them in a suitable, sanitary manner. We must all respect other road/footpath user especially children, people with buggies etc. Thank you.

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.

Reflection

Dear Lord God, we thank you that you are a forgiving God,

 who wipes out all the wrongs from the past,

 and starts anew with us today.

Bring healing and comfort to those who are anxious,

 upset, lonely, or ill today;

 encourage those who help and care for them.

 May all who suffer be led from pain to peace.

We give you thanks for your loving mercy

 shown to us in Jesus Christ,

 who endured the suffering of the cross

 to overcome all that separates us from you,

and was raised up to new life.

Strengthen our faith in the victory of the cross

 and the hope of eternal life.

 Help us to grow in the life which does not end,

 in love and friendship with you,

 which lasts for ever;

 through your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ.

Amen.
