Data Protection Legislation (GDPR) came into force recently. Among the requirement is that the written consent of people whose names are published in the Newsletter be obtained, for example, Ministers of Holy Communion, Readers, Altar Society, Collectors, those involved in looking after church Grounds. Consent Forms will be left in the Sacristies in each of the Churches. The consent form is an essential element of Data Protection compliance. The Consent form is very short and only takes a few moments to complete and can be completed after any of the Masses. I would be very grateful if you could treat the completion of this form as a priority next time you are at Mass.
VILLAGE WEEKLY CLEAN-UP on Wednesdays meeting at Playground at 7:30p.m.
MARRIAGES: Congratulations and a long and happy life to Geraldine Claffey & Terry Mulready who married on July 7th last in Shannonbridge.
 
 THE JOY OF LOVE
(World Meeting Of Families Anthem)
Lo-ve is patient, and love is kind.
Love is not resentful; it is not rude.
Love is not arrogant, nor boastful, nor jealous, but love rejoices, rejoices in the truth
Refrain The joy of love, a joy for all God’s family,  The joy of love transcending time and space. Our Love for each other mirrors God the Father’s love.  The joy of love: a joy for all the earth

MISSION APPEAL - Next weekend, July 21/22nd.  Fr.
