Bunclody ICA - New members needed
It is 70 years since ICA was started in Bunclody. The guild has
always been very active in the parish for all those years. We want to
keep that tradition alive. But, due in no small way to Covid 19 and the
demographic ageing of our members, we are desperately looking for new
members to join our guild. We meet once a month and have a guest
speaker. Sometimes have various crafts, etc at our meeting. We also meet
once a month for coffee and chat in local restaurant. Sadly, if we do
not get new members, we may have to close the guild. If you have 2 hours
to spare, once a month, and to keep the guild open, which was kept going
by so many wonderful women in the past.
Please phone 087 2805426 or 086 8135587
Meetings held Tuesday & Saturday at 8:30pm in Brennan’s Market Square
Monday night 8:45pm in Day Care Centre.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
In Sunday’s Gospel there is another post resurrection appearance of
Jesus. He was on the shore. At first they did not recognise him. They
had been fishing and had caught nothing. Jesus advised them to cast the
net to the starboard side and they would have success. They caught so
many fish they could scarcely haul in the net. John recognised that it
was the Lord. Peter in his enthusiasm jumped into the water and went to
meet Jesus. He was already cooking a meal and asked them to have
breakfast. What was true before his death and resurrection was once
During his public life Jesus had meals on various occasions, often
with the outcasts of society. In this way he built his friendship with
people and made permanent friends. At the Last Supper he had his final
meal with the apostles and disciples, his immediate friends. But he left
to them the outline of another meal which would en-able all of us to
renew and strengthen our friend-ship with himself. We call that meal the
Eucharist, where we remember his death and resurrection and partake of
himself in the bread of the Eucharist. We receive him into ourselves as
the Bread of Life. We experience immediate contact with him-self in this
sacred meal and so we nourish our friendship with him. Our attachment to
him should grow stronger and if we live the spirit of the Eucharist in
our daily lives we will build up our com-munity to be a family of
friendship and love.
THE HOOK OF FAITH THIS WEEK
‘What the Church is Doing Wrong’ is a provocative title of an
interview with Fr Brendan Kilcoyne. Worth listening to. For this Third
Sunday of Easter we have a Homily on one of the most beautiful of the
resurrection appearances where Jesus offers his forgiveness to a wounded
Peter. For the feast of St Athanasius on 2nd May, we ask the same
question as he grappled with - who Jesus Christ is for the modern world?
We have a feature on evangelization as story-telling and an article by
Sean Byrne inspired by Marty Morrisey’s tribute to his mother on the
Late Late Show. We have a reflection on the Pope’s message for the month
of May and finally, news of a holy hour of prayer in St Aidan’s
Cathedral next Sunday, 8th May to mark ‘Vocations Sun-day’. Check out
these and other resources available at www.thehookoffaith.com
