Mon 21 June is the memorial of St Aloysius Gonzaga (d. 1591), religious. He is honoured as a patron of youth. 

Tue 22 June is the feast of the Dedication of the Cathedral of the Assumption, Thurles. ‘In order that the importance and dignity of the local church may stand out with greater clarity, the anniversary of the dedication of its cathedral is to be celebrated, with the rank of a solemnity in the cathedral itself, and with the rank of a feast in the other churches of the diocese, on the date on which the dedication recurs’ (The Irish Bishops Liturgical Note 12). Thurles Cathedral was dedicated by Archbishop Croke on 22 June 1879. 

Thu 24 June is the solemnity of The Nativity of St John the Baptist

Céad Míle Fáilte: We welcome you back to Mass this weekend. We are so grateful for your loyalty, your generosity and your goodness. It will be a bit different from what we were used to. The following are some of the new arrangements that we are asked to respect:

(a) The total number allowed in each church is 50.

(b) We ask you to wear a face covering inside the church, and to respect physical distancing in the church and its environs.

(c) We ask you to sanitize your hands as you enter and leave the church.

(d) A collection box will be in the porch of the Church for collections and contributions during each Mass.

(e) At the end of each Mass, we are hoping for volunteers to help in sanitizing the pews and seats. Some cloths and sanitizing liquid are available in the church. If people brought a wipe and sanitizer with them and looked after the pew they are using this would be very helpful. 

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

A Prayer for Christian Fathers (on Fathers Day)

Heavenly Father,
you entrusted your Son Jesus,
the child of Mary,
to the care of Joseph, an earthly father.
Bless all fathers
as they care for their families.
Give them strength and wisdom,
tenderness and patience;
support them in the work they have to do,
protecting those who look to them,
as we look to you for love and salvation,
through Jesus Christ our rock and defender. Amen.
