Diocesan/Parish Garda Vetting Policy from 1st January 2017
All parish clergy, staff and volunteers, who carry out their work/ministry in public, must be Garda vetted. This is defined as any person who carries out their work/ministry in the Church or Church buildings. Vetting also applies to those who work or minister in the community i.e. those who visit homes, hospitals, nursing homes etc. Vetting for all the above should be renewed every three years. Vetting and renewal of vetting in this Parish will commence soon.
We sympathise with the family of Liam Gartland who passed away this week. May he rest in peace.

St. Padre Pio (Prayer for Healing):
Heavenly Father I call on you right now in a very special way. It is through your power we have been created. Every breath we take every morning that we wake up and every moment of every hour we live under your power. Through the intercession of St. Padre Pio Father, I ask you now to touch us with that same power. For if you created ones’s life from nothing you certainly can recreate it. Cast out anything that should not be in good health, cure what is broken and ill. Cancer, alcohol, addiction, drugs, Alzheimer’s, dementia, heart, hearing and all other forms of illness or injuries. Root out any damaged cells. Open any blocked arteries or veins and rebuild any damaged areas. Remove all inflammation and cleane any infection. Let the warmth of your healing pass through the body to make any unhealthy areas, so that the body will function the way you created it to do so. And father restore the body, sight or mind that we may serve you for the rest of our life. St Padre Pio, take our cause in hand and grant it good success x 3, I ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
