Farewells are not easy... .... ... The bells of the three churches: Carrigeen, Kilnaspic and Mooncoin have called me to lead you in prayer for the past six years. Now the bell of the Church of St. Kieran in the parish of Seir Kieran will call me to continue to lead people in worship. It was at Seir Kieran that St. Kieran heard the bell ring and caused him to build a monastic settlement there. Seir Kieran became the seat of the diocese of Ossory. Life in the parish of Mooncoin has been wonderful for me. I have experienced tremendous support from the faith of each one of you and I thank you. My prayer of thanksgiving is joined with St. Paul in chapter three of his letter to the Ephesians:
‘This, then, is what I pray, kneeling before the Father, from whom every family, whether spiritual or natural, takes its name: Out of his infinite glory, may he give you the power through his Spirit for your hidden self to grow strong, so that Christ may live in your hearts through faith, and then, planted in love and built on love, you will with all the saints have the strength to grasp the breadth and the length, the height and the depth; until, knowing the love of Christ, which is beyond all knowledge you are filled with the utter fullness of God. Glory be to him whose power, working in us, can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine; glory be to him from generation to generation in the Church and in Christ Jesus forever and ever. Amen.’
May the Lord bless you. May His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. May He fill you with His love and peace.
Until we meet again. Fr. Eamonn O’Gorman.
The Club would like to thank Michael & Alice Blanchfield of Centra Mooncoin for allowing us to raise funds through bag packing last weekend. We greatly appreciate all the support we got from the parish.
