For the month of February we remember our family, friends and neighbours, whose mortuary cards are displayed on the Church noticeboard:- Rita Chawke, Ballyvologue. Kathleen Monckton & Ellen Hickey, Kilatal. Joe O'Brien & Paddy O'Regan, Graigacurra. Sean Carey, Granagh. Joan Scanlon & John Mulcahy, Kingsland. Jim Sheehan, Coolruss. Denis O'Riordan, Lisduane. Steven O'Keeffe, Ballyneale. Bill Chawke, Banogue. Catherine Keating, Carrickerry. Timothy Power, Pallasgreen. Margaret O'Connor & Johanna O'Connell, Kilmeedy. Seamus Madden, Buttevant. Sr. Raphael Power, London.
I heard that we have three parishioners in hospital at present - Neily, Denis & Kathleen. We wish them a speedy recovery and hope they will all be out and about soon.
" FromLimerickwithLove" - This is the name of a 'Gofundme' page set up by one of our Trócaire volunteers within the Diocese. This year's Lenten Campaign focuses on the conflict being experienced in South Sudan.
This year the ladies on the Trócaire box are Awut and Ajak who lost their homes and loved ones to the conflict. They fled their villages with nothing but the clothes on their back, trekking through miles of dangerous bushland with no food or water for themselves or their children. Awut arrived in the community of Malek frightened, but was welcomed with loving arms by her new neighbours. Some time later, Ajak also returned to Malek after her soldier husband was injured. Here, in this remarkable community, people whose lives were brought together by pain and suffering are starting new lives based on love, friendship and kindness. Every day remains a struggle for Awut and Ajak and their families. They struggle to earn money, grow food and attend school. Life continues to be full of challenges and obstacles for these women, but they face these challenges together.
This fundraising event is hoping to raise vital funds for Trócaire over this Lenten period. We are inviting people from all parishes and communities to get involved in collectively covering the virtual distance of 6,241kilometers, from Limerick to South Sudan, over the six weeks of Lent, by running, walking or cycling. I must get the fit bit up and running and see how far I can go - luckily it can all be done in Liskennett Wood! Anyone interested in doing this, just let me know and I will add you to the list.
