Thought for the Day:

photo of Pope Francis

There are two ways of thinking and of having faith. We can fear to lose the saved, and we can want to save the lost. When we stop worrying that we might offend someone by proclaiming the truths of the faith, and start realizing that we might save someone by being forthright, we may begin drawing converts into the Church.

Pope Francis, addressing the College of Cardinals, Feb. 2015

The Year of Mercy

the year of mercy logo

Pope Francis has announced an Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy in the Universal Church. This Holy Year of Mercy began on 8 December 2015 to commemorate both the Feast of the Immaculate Conception and the 50th anniversary of the closing of the Second Vatican Council, which called the Church to proclaim the Gospel to the world in new ways, bringing God’s mercy to everyone. The Year will conclude on 20 November 2016.

Letter from Bishop Brennan on the Year of Mercy.

Welcome to St. Michael's,

a Catholic Christian community under the patronage of St. Michael the Archangel with the gospel of Jesus Christ at the centre of our worship and belief. We are in the Catholic Diocese of Ferns in the south east corner of Ireland, almost co-extensive with County Wexford. The parish is served by two churches, St. Michael's Church in Gorey town and St. Kevin's Church in Tara Hill.

We strive, through our parish organisation, to do in memory of Jesus what he requested us to do - to repent and believe, to love and forgive, to care for the needy - and to find strength to do this at the table of His Word and the table of the Eucharist.

If you are not already an active member of our church, consider sharing in what we have to offer. All are welcome - the saint and the sinner - in our midst.

Rev. William Howell, Parish Priest.

for September 2016

Universal: Centrality of the Human Person
That each may contribute to the common good and to the building of a society that places the human person at the center.

Evangelization: Mission to Evangelize
That by participating in the Sacraments and meditating on Scripture, Christians may become more aware of their mission to evangelize.
