THE GRAAN WEEKLY BULLETIN

13th August 2017

Sunday Collection: The Collection came to £1700. Thank you for your kind contributions as always. There will be a Development Collection taken up after Communion today.

FEAST OF THE ASSUMPTION: Tuesday is the feast of Mary’s Assumption: It means that in Mary’s case we believe that she was taken up body and soul into Heaven. It was not fitting that the body of Mary, who was preserved free from sin by God’s grace, should suffer decay in a grave. There is no record of veneration of the body of Mary in the early church. Masses are: Monday 8pm:Arthur.   Tuesday 10.30am: Augustine. 12 Noon: Brian   8pm: Brian.

Guild Mass Cards: We have a wide selection of cards for Deceased, Mass Bouquets, Get Well, Birthday, Special Occasion, Exams, With Thanks Bouquets which cost £2 / €2.50 each. We value your support.

 

DUTY: Monday: No Duty; Mass @ 8pm: Arthur. Duty 2- 5pm Tuesday – Friday. Tuesday: Brian.

Feasts of the Week: Monday: St Maximillian Kolbe. He was a Franciscan priest who was a famous writer and journalist of his time. He worked in Japan but during the Second World War he was arrested and died in Auchvitz, having volunteered to take the place of a young father. The young father survived and Fr Kolbe was sent to the gas chamber. The young father was present in Rome on the day of his beatification. Tuesday: The Assumption of The Blessed Virgin Mary.
