Our daily lives can easily become filled with stress, pressure and confusion. But we can stop at any moment and slip away into the presence of God’s spirit through prayer, reflection and meditation, and there find peace and refreshing.
‘Be still and know that I am God.
All the earth proclaim in the Lord. Sing your praise to God’.
Wishing you all a very happy and joy filled and safe summer. Drive with care – life has no spare.

Would like to thank all of the parish team most sincerely for the very warm welcome which Charlie Flynn received when he visited the parish of Mooncoin on June 18/19. Charlie was greatly touched by the hospitality and response he received. The amount of €1,333.24 was donated to Viatores Christi by the parishioners of Mooncoin. Also we were delighted to receive some enquiries from people who may be interested in joining our lay missionary preparatory programme, with the view to going overseas, or getting involved in voluntary work here at home. Collette Rooney Development Officer.

The U6’s opened with their first club match Thursday last in Slieverue. It was a very enjoyable evening for both child and parent, we look forward to their next match. The U8’s also attended and they too performed very well on the evening. They are all looking forward to the Mooncoin U8 blitz in early July. The U10 team is progressing nicely having competed in the Kilkenny ‘Go Games’ and the Ballyduff upper U10 tournament, which took place over two weekends. The lads enjoyed going to west Waterford to compete. Thanks to Centra, a number of our U10’s had the opportunity to train with Henry Shefflin and John Mullane last Saturday morning at Nowlan Park. The two lads were great giving their time to training and talking to our future stars. The U11 team is still involved in the Waterford city league with one round of matches to be played. They are competing in the A league and are performing well. Our U12’s took part in the Tullogher tournament taking honours over Mullinavat on the last day. The Kilkenny U12 league begins on July 23. Best of luck lads. The primary schools were beaten in the quarter final against Thomastown. They had a fantastic league campaign, but were beaten by the better team on the day. A special thanks to Mr. Niall Tennyson for his coaching to the lads.
