Saturday Vigil Mass in Mullinabreena during the month of July.

14th Sunday in Ordinary Time – 5th July: Focus: Faith opens the door for God to work wonders in our lives. – When Jesus went to teach in his native synagogue, there was such a lack of faith shown in him that he was unable to perform any mighty deeds. Are things different in our life? Are we accepting of all that Jesus could do for us? Or is our lack of faith creating obstacles to the wonderful things Jesus wants to do for us?


SYMPATHY: We remember in our prayers at this time: Bridget Connolly, Carrowkeel, Tommy Quinn,Birmingham, (uncle of Martin Quinn), Jim O’Malley, Bonniconlon, (grandfather of Phil Wynne, Castlecawley). We extend our sympathy to the bereaved. 

May the Souls of the faithful departed rest in peace.
