Laudato Sí: Care of Our Common Home

Pope Francis recent Encyclical Laudato Sí encourages us to care for the earth.  A Programme of awareness-raising and training is planned for the month of May 2017.  Workshops are being held in Cabragh Wetlands on Sat 6th, 13th, 20th & 27th May  from 10am to 1pm with light lunch provided. This can have a positive impact in a variety of ways and the workshops would hopefully support people in deciding what steps, large or small, could be initiated in their own parish communities regarding environmental issues.  If you are interested in participating in this programme please contact the Diocesan Office (0504) 21512 or email

Do not let your hearts be troubled – A Reflection

‘Worrying is carrying tomorrow’s load with today’s strength – carrying two days at once.  It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time.  Worrying doesn’t empty  tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of it’s strength’.

We have our own anxieties, whether big or small.  None of us knows how the future is going to turn out, and that is precisely why we tend to worry.  In today’s Gospel, Thomas frets: ‘Lord, we do not know where you are going, so how can we know the way?’  But Jesus has reassuring words.  ‘I am the way’.  Hand in hand with Jesus, we can walk the road ahead.

Ballinure N.S – Are currently running a used clothes collection.  Items accepted include cloths, footwear, handbags, accessories, bed linen, curtains etc..  No pillows, duvets or cushions please.  Items can be dropped at the school before the 8th of June or to arrange collection call / text 086-1558431.  We would like to thank all who attended our recent Anti-Bullying Talk.  We hope they found it helpful and informative.

County Showcase  in  Anner  Hotel    As you may be aware  Rang  V1  participated  in  a  JEP Project  earlier  this  year.  The  children  made  a  great effort  with  this project and  worked  very  hard  on  all  stages.  On  Tuesday 23rd  May we  have  been invited  to  attend  the  County Showcase in  Anner  Hotel  Thurles.  This  is  an  opportunity for  the  children to  see  all  the  other  JEP projects  completed  in Tipperary.  We  will  have  our  own  Display Area  and  the  children will show their  fellow schools  what they themselves did.  We  will  be  given  back  our  JEP Folder  on  the  Day.    It is a  celebration  of  their  work.  It starts  at 11.15a.m.  and  if  you would  like  to  pop in  to  show them  your  support you would  be  very  welcome  on  the  day.
