Lord, hear us We pray for our suffering and divided world of rich and poor, that all people of goodwill may work towards peace and justice and for an end to the suffering caused by divisions and hatred. Lord, hear us. We pray that the light of Christ will shine for all of us as we gather to celebrate the Eucharist today that so sharing the bread from heaven, we may enjoy the fullness of life. Lord, hear us. We pray for all who are sick or housebound and for those who feel lonely or isolated at this time of year. May they know the healing touch of Jesus and be united with him in prayer. Lord, hear us. We pray for all those who have died, remembering especially those who have gone home to God since this time last year, that they may know the joy of eternal life in heaven. Lord, hear us. Celebrant: Heavenly Father, in your mercy grant us your saving help during this Advent time as we try more earnestly to grow together in holiness and faith in the light of your Christ. We make these and all our prayers through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, God forever. Amen. Recently deceased:Bernie McLernon, Knockronaghan.

St. Vincent DePaul Collection: 4/5th December: Please support the SVdP collection by donating what you can. Each year our conference helps families and people in need in this community.  The funds raised will be spent in this locally helping those who need it most with food, heating and education costs. We rely almost entirely on the support of you, the generous parishioners of Donagh parish. Thank you in advance for your continued support. Weekly Offertory donations to Donagh Parish: Firstly we would like to yet again thank the parishioners for their constant financial support especially throughout the pandemic. We are most grateful. We have decided to investigate further ways in which parishioners can donate to the parish, other than the traditional envelope system. With that in mind, we have decided to offer bank transfer as an option. If you would like to pay by bank transfer, please contact parish office for more details. Alternatively, you may wish to set up a standing order with your bank - again, call the parish office to request a form or for more information. Charitable Donations Scheme Overview: This scheme entitles the parish to benefit even further from your contribution by reclaiming from the Revenue Commissioner 30% of the tax you have paid in the past year. The scheme applies to P.A.Y.E and self- employed alike, provided the contribution is in excess of €250 to the parish in the tax year 2020. Many thanks to those who have returned their CHY3 Certificate recently. If you still wish to assist the parish with this additional source of income, please return your completed CHY3 Cert to the parish office this week. Eligibility: If you are no-longer a tax payer and have received a CHY 3 form from us, we would be much obliged if you could contact the parish office and we can remove you from the list - thus reducing the administration costs of postage/stationery etc. each year. Many thanks. Reflection: The Lord is kind and full of compassion. The Lord is close to all who call him! In the place of fear, God’s strength to uphold us. In the place of emptiness, God’s wisdom to guide us. In the place of confusion, God’s eye for our seeing. In the place of dejection, God’s hope to sustain us. In our darker moments may we know the generous presence of God. We give thanks for peace of mind and pray for all who are disturbed or distressed. The blessing of acceptance be yours. The blessing of forgiveness be yours. The blessing of gentleness be yours. The blessing of resilience be yours. The blessing of eternal life be yours.
