‘Supporting a Culture of Life’ Pastoral Message by Bishop Denis Nulty

On 25th May, a referendum will be held on the question of removing the right to life of the unborn child from the Constitution of Ireland. I want to explain in these short words why I will be voting No.

Let me state the obvious at the outset. There is no easy way to talk about abortion. I am very conscious of those who are affected by their choice to have an abortion at some point in the past. I believe that there is real grieving in the wake of an abortion and that compassion and care should be our first response. I pray for all who seek healing.

My concern here is not to dwell on the past but to safeguard the future. Nothing is as important for the future of our shared humanity as the right to life. Therefore, I wish to speak boldly and clearly.

I don’t believe that life begins at birth. I believe that life begins before birth. Think of the simple scene we have all witnessed countless times of family and friends craning their heads to look into a buggy to marvel at a new born child. I even watched  ……

If I Had My Life To Live Over

The following was written by the late Erma Bombeck after she found out she had a fatal disease.

If I had my life to live over, I would have talked less and listened more.
I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained and the ….

Easter Message from Fr. Liam

Easter Sunday has arrived, a day filled with hope, joy and the promise of life eternal. It has been a truly beautiful week; from our walk along the Canal last Sunday, celebrating the journey of Jesus into Jerusalem, then to the solemnity of Holy Thursday and the deep reverence expressed as we stood in line to kiss the Cross on Good Friday. They are not just any days but rather they are truly days that are ‘Holy’, and so today we acknowledge and rejoice in …….

The Holy Family Icon Explained

The Angels on the Outside – This icon of the Holy Family is shaped a bit like a house with a double door. On the outside of each door there is an angel. Michael on the left, Gabriel on the right. We remember the prayer from our childhood. ‘O angel of God, my guardian dear.’ Angels represent God’s desire to protect us, our home and our family. When we ….

Put the Kettle on!!

I love the  ‘Barry‘s Tea’ ad on radio, that paints memories of: warmth, of family, of Santa. The Dad brings home the train set, to which his wife reacts, ―”Sure Martin, that‘s not what they want at all‖. Santa can bring them what he wants”, but this is from me! Put the kettle on and [...]

Facing Changes & Challenges Together – taking the next step …

From Bishop Denis Nulty
I was very happy with the huge response in so many ways to our gathering in Mount St. Anne’s last June, as we reflected together on the need for a radical reappraisal of diocesan structures that becomes more apparent with every passing week. Five months on I want to return to the [...]

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).
