Novena Thanks: A sincere word of thanks to everyone who attended the Novena and to all our speakers and to all who made it such a blessed event!

 

Mender God: Mender God, mend now our souls. / Keep us in your loving hands / ‘Until the pieces of each one of us form a pattern of grace, / And ragged edges are gently bound, / so that we might be your hands and do your handiwork, / so that we might pull slim threads of you through the unravelling world. (From Pat Coyle’s talk at our Novena on Monday night).

 

World Meetings of Families: On the feast of St Macartan, patron of the diocese of Clogher there will be a celebration at 1pm in The Forth Chapel, Augher on Saturday 24th March 2018. The celebration led by Monsignor Joseph Mc Guiness includes the Liturgical Act of Entrusting the WMOF 18 Family Petitions to Religious Congregations and Communities of the diocese. Member of the Graan community will be on hand to receive these petitions. Our religious communities of the dioceses will also receive some of the petitions.
