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.

Jesus rejects the idea that personal misfortune is God’s punishment for sin. Yet a serious illness or accident can serve as a wake-up call about how we live our lives. How have such experiences given you a greater appreciation of the value of your life and relationships, and of the time, and opportunities at your disposal.

I’ll wait till tomorrow to do that’. Have you ever said that and then found the chance is gone the next day? In the story we are called to recognize God at work in our lives and respond to Him. NOW is the opportune moment. When have you been glad you did not put off action to the following day?

Perhaps there have been times when you saw yourself like the tree in the parable - useless, merely a waste of space, unable to achieve what you wanted. Think of friends who came to you at such a time, people who saw your potential and were prepared to give you another chance, people who also dug the soil around you and gave you the help you needed to grow. Per-haps in your turns you have been able to do this for others.


The Gospel for the Third Sunday of Lent raises the question of suffering and why bad things hap-pen to good people. This question arises in our hearts as we watch the terrible situation unfold in Ukraine. The homily and newsletter insert reflect on the place of suffering and the cross in our lives. As part of the government’s three-year abortion review, the public are asked to make submissions. We help you to do so. Our video this week is with Micky Harte who reflects on his re-cent biography ‘Devotion’. We have a podcast that discusses the value of going to Confession and finally, an article and reflections on the great feast of the Annunciation and Mary’s unconditional ‘YES’ to God. Check out these and other resources available at
