Questions people askQ. What did Jesus refer to when he told people to stay awake?A. The Lord is reminding us never to forget our final judgement and destiny. How would you live, what would you do if you knew that you had only a short time to live? ‘Stay awake, because you never know when the time will come.’ Staying awake also means being vigilant against temptation by not allowing ourselves to be misled by the subtle lies of the devil. We are also exhorted to be alert and sensitive to the glory and goodness of God manifested in the world in many ways. (Fr O'Flynn - Intercom)
Alanon Meetings, Tues nights, Health Centre Birr, @8.30pm

We believe alcoholism is a family illness, & that changed attitudes can aid recovery. The meetings are open to everyone; we are a self-supporting group, through our own voluntary contributions.
