Easter Greetings: We wish all our parishioners a happy, peaceful and joyful Easter. This feast, Christ’s victory over sin and death, is the source of all our hope. May this hope sustain all of us, our families and our parish community during 2023. Again my sincere gratitude and thanks to all who help out in our parish throughout the year and especially at Easter.
Boherlahan Choir: Help us enhance our Sunday Liturgy. So often in the past, people have spoken to me in praise and appreciation of our Parish Choir. This is an invitation to singers of any age to come along and join our choir and help to make the Sunday Liturgy an important part of our faith commitment. We appreciate the many constraints on families and you would be most welcome even to come occasionally. Just come to the choir any Sunday or let any member of the choir know of your interest.
Easter Holy Water: We invite you to continue the good tradition of taking home Easter Water and sprinkling it on the houses and land. May God bless our homes and our daily work.
Trócaire Boxes and Holy Places Collections: Offerings may be handed in at any time.
Benemerenti Celebration: Pope Francis has granted the Benemerenti Honour to our sacristan Kathleen O’Donnell in recognition of her faithful service over so many years in Dualla Church. Archbishop Kieran O’Reilly will make the presentation at the 6.30pm. Mass here next Saturday evening. There will be a cup of tea in the Community Hall afterwards. All are welcome.
Newsletter Notices: Please forward by Wednesday evening any items for the newsletter to Fr. Egan at email@example.com.
2nd Collection: Our 2nd Collection will be taken up this weekend. It would traditionally have been the Priest’s Easter Collection. I want to again express my very sincere thanks for the cooperation, support and friendship I receive from the people of the parish. Your generosity, kindness and understanding I appreciate all the more as I advance in years.

Divine Mercy Sunday: New Inn and Knockgraffon Parish are having a Divine Mercy Chaplet on next Sunday 16th April at 3pm. in New Inn Parish Church. Fr. Michael Kennedy will lead the Chaplet. All are invited to attend.
Good Friday Walk: Sincere thanks to all who participated in the Pilgrim Walk on Good Friday. I thank Ardmayle Heritage Society, the Parish Pastoral Team and all others involved in the organization. It is a lovely spiritual event on that day and will provide a good faith memory for our younger people.
JESUS COME TO US
Come to us when we realise our need for you.
Come to us when we search for you.
Come to us when we forget or ignore you.
Come to us when we fail you.
Come to us with the love that made us and redeems us.
Come to us with hope and joy.
Bring us, Jesus, one day to eternity. Amen.
