Good Friday day Fast & Abstinence


Fasting means that the amount of food we eat is reduced. Abstinence means that we give up a particular kind of food (USUALLY MEAT) or drink.
Those over 18 and under 60 are bound by the
law of fasting, while those over 14 are bound by the law of abstinence.


TRÓCAIRE BOXES
Please bring your Trócaire collection to the ceremonies of Holy Thursday evening or Good Friday.
If possible please convert the contents of your box into notes, for consideration of your neighbours who volunteer to count this money.
PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE THE BOXES IN THE CHURCH AT OTHER TIMES



Examination of conscience
Here is an examination of conscience which may help you to look more closely at the serious issues in your life and where you have failed in living out your gospel calling.
What kind of Christian am I in:-

A) My religious practice:
Do I give time to God in prayer?I pray regularly?I join my parish community for Sunday Mass?

B) My home life:
What am I like to live with? Do I make my home happy?I honour my marriage vows or my duties towards my parents or children, those whom I love?I selfish or moody?I cause serious problems in my home through abusing alcohol or drugs, being violent or bullying, being lazy or selfish?

C) My relationship with others:
Am I tolerant of others? Do I treat others with respect?I bitter towards anyone? Do I hold a grudge against anyone?I forgive those who hurt me?I look down on any group or individual because of class, race, nationality, politics, sex or religion?

D) My practice of justice:
Am I too fond of material things?I respect the needs, rights and property of others?I honest in my work and business relationships?I pay my debts and return borrowed goods?I cheat, steal, or make false claims?I respect the environment and all God's creation?

Remember that God isn't interested in how good a memory you have, or how many failings you discover in yourself. All God asks is that you come before him genuinely sorry for those times when you have failed him and failed the community.


Frs. John and Tom wish to thank you for your Generosity to the recent Lenten Station.

On Monday 7th October the parish of Rahan turned out in style to say 'Thank You' and to bid farewell to Fr. Johnny McEvoy.
Fr. Johnny is returning to his Missionary Order, the Columbans in Navan.
The Committee which organised the event, presented Fr. Johnny with the fishermen in their boat, reflecting the image of being sent as a missionary, called 'to be fishers of men'.
