Sunday Gospel The poor man lay at the gate of the rich man. Gates are important to humans, they keep people inside and they keep people outside. They are boundaries and they let us know who owns what. The poor man lay at the gate in the hope of getting the basics for living. The rich man used his gate to ensure that he was kept away from the realities of life. In a way, both were imprisoned, unable to experience a world of truth, justice and peace. It is good for the followers of Jesus to be aware of the gates in their lives, ideas and notions that some people are better than others, or that some humans need to be protected from others who are entitled to basic human rights.

Pathways 2022 Have you ever thought about exploring your faith…or wished that you could broaden your understanding of your faith? If your answers are “Yes”, then perhaps Pathways is for you. No academic qualification necessary and no written work required during the course What is the purpose of the course? Pathways aims to offer a space where adults can explore, reflect upon and discuss faith and how it relates to life in today’s world, both at a personal and community level. Is this course for me? This course is offered to men and women from all walks of life. It sees participants’ lived experience as complementary to the more formal input of the sessions and values the sharing of that experience as one of the great gifts participants can offer to each other. It presents Christian spirituality and theology in an accessible, down-to-earth way in an accepting and relaxed atmosphere. No written work is required. The course will begin on Saturday, 1 October 2022. The course is run one Saturday per month (10:00 am – 4:30 pm) from October to June. Check

Day for Life 2 October 2022 is a day dedicated to raising awareness of the meaning and value of human life at every stage and in every condition. This year’s Day for Life will be celebrated in Ireland on Sunday 2 October on the theme ‘Caring for the Older Person’. The Irish Bishops invite you to think about the value and worth of older persons in families and in society, and to make practical choices to build bridges between the generations. They call for people and parishes to devote quality time, energy and creativity in caring for the older persons in our communities. They invite engagement in political debate on providing adequately resourced care of older persons so that no-one feels like a burden in our society, challenging politicians and the healthcare system to provide accessible palliative care for the dying.

25 September 2022 World Day of Migrants and Refugees Lord, make us bearers of hope, so that where there is darkness, your light may shine, and where there is discouragement, confidence in the future may be reborn. Lord, make us instruments of your justice, so that where there is exclusion, fraternity may flourish, and where there is greed, a spirit of sharing may grow. Lord, make us builders of your Kingdom, together with migrants and refugees and with all who dwell on the peripheries. Lord, let us learn how beautiful it is to live together as brothers and sisters. Amen.
