A Students Prayer at Exam Time

Thank you Lord for the gift of my life.
Thank you for my family, my friends and my education.
The exams are here now Lord, and I ask your blessing.
Some of my friends are feeling the pressure,
and sometimes I feel a little nervous too.
I want to do my best, so please guide me.
Help me to remember what I have studied.
Help me to express myself clearly, and keep me calm.
Be with me during the exams, and walk with me always. Amen.

We wish all our students well in your exams and will remember you in our prayers.

New Funeral Regulations

At a recent meeting with Officials from the Environment Section of Kildare County Council we were informed of a ‘New Directive’, which stipulates that it is no longer possible for burials to take place in St. Corban’s Cemetery on Sundays’. Therefore, there will no longer be any Funeral Masses celebrated on Sundays’. As a Parish we are obliged to comply with the New Directive from Kildare County Council. This new practice will also apply to both Sallins and Two Mile House and takes place with immediate effect.  (Removals to the Church on Sunday evenings will continue as normal).

Happy Mothers Day

March 26, 2017;

Today is a special day where we get the opportunity to say thanks to God for the gift of all mothers. We also remember all our mothers who have gone home to God. We rejoice in the love and care they share and have shared with us and we pray God’s blessing of love and peace upon them all today.

A Prayer for Mothers

God our Creator, we pray:
for new mothers, coming to terms with new responsibility ;
for expectant mothers, wondering and waiting;
for those who are tired, stressed or depressed;
for those who struggle to balance the tasks of work and family;
for those who are unable to feed their children due to poverty;
for those whose children have physical, mental or emotional disabilities;
for those who raise children on their own;
for those who have lost a child;
for those who care for the children of others;
for those whose children have left home;
and for those whose desire to be a mother has not been fulfilled.
Bless all mothers, that their love may be deep and tender,
and that they may lead their children to know and do what is good,
living not for themselves alone, but for God and for others. Amen.

Why Worry? Be Happy!!
