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 ….

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).

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.
