Men, Women - Divorced, Separated or Widowed

Beginning Experience (B.E.) might help!  Few people are able to cope alone with the pain of loss. Do you find that you need more support than family and friends can provide? Seeking help is a sign of strength and self-knowledge – not weakness. This is a healing ministry, which helps to resolve the grief that goes with the end of a marriage or relationship. Coping effectively with bereavement is a skill we can all learn.

B.E. (“Beginning Experience”) is an organisation that can help by linking you with a team, who are themselves widowed, separated or divorced share their experiences with you.

Contact the Parish Office for details: olmcfirhouseparish@gmail.com

Used Stamps

Put your stamp on the foreign missions: The Carmelite Fathers in our neighbouring Parish, Knocklyon, collect used stamps for their missions. Please collect yours and drop them into the Parish Office.

Used Cans

Can you Help?   Many thanks to those who continue to drop cans into the driveway of 66 Monalea Wood.  The money raised goes to the most needy in 3rd world countries.  You can now include tin cans (including biscuit tins etc.)

Copper Collection
Can you Help?: “Take care of the pennies (or cents) and the pounds (or Euro) will take care of themselves.” To help Parish finances painlessly why not bring loose copper coins that are gathering (and gathering dust) in your home to the Parish Office or Sacristy for our Copper Coin Collection any time.

Thank you.
