Prayers of the faithful
Priest:  In this Easter season, God invites us to be more aware of our baptism and our vocation in life - to realise that we are loved and that we are called to love.  And so we pray.
We pray for all who follow the call to love as married people and as parents.  May they find joy in living for those they love.
Lord, hear us.
We pray for all who follow the call to love as single people.  May they be a gift to all whom they meet.  Lord, hear us.
We pray for all who follow the call to love as priests and religious. May they help others discover their vocation to love.  Lord, hear us.
We pray for all who follow the call to love as widowed or separated people.  May they have courage to go on living and loving. Lord, hear us.
We pray for all who have died.  May they be like God, seeing God as God really is.  Lord, hear us.
We give thanks for the love that the Father has lavished on us by letting us be called God’s children.  We give thanks for Jesus Christ, the cornerstone of our faith, the good shepherd who loves us now and always, for ever and ever.

Edelle Says Thanks: I would like to say a huge thank you to all who attended my Album Launch in Four Seasons on April 4th.  I was overwhelmed by all the support and kind comments both on the night and since. There were so many in attendance that it would be impossible for me to thank you individually but your presence was noted and appreciated very much. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and I hope that you enjoyed the show. Thank you sincerely.  Edelle McMahon

Clean up: Excellent work and huge thanks to all community volunteers for attending our annual An Taisce spring clean up on Saturday morning around Emy Lough, Mountain River and Emyvale environs.  Once again two skips were filled full of rubbish and still a few other areas left to do another litter-pick. Many thanks also to our Minister Heather Humphreys for visiting and for her continued support to our beautiful area.
