A Reflection for Lent on Light by Ruairi Deane. Wednesday, 3rd March, at 1.30pm on
 

A Message from the Parish Finance Committee

Tax Efficient Donations
 
Our envelope collection system continues this year despite the current closure. Boxes are available for collection tomorrow, Monday 22nd February, between 10.30 and 12.30 in the parish office – located behind the church. If you are unable to collect at this time, please contact the parish office by email frankfieldgrange@gmail.com as we will be arranging a second collection date.
 
We can also email you the application form, for you to complete and return, and allocate you a box number which you can use when making your donations online, or if dropping off a donation to the Presbytery and you can pick your box up at a later date.
 
When a parishioner makes a donation of over €250 a year to the Offertory and Second collections the parish can reclaim an additional 33% on this donation from the revenue once the parishioner has paid tax in the current tax year.
 
If you already have a box number from a prior year, you can continue to use that number on any donations made online or dropped into the Presbytery, and collect your box at a later stage when the church reopens for masses.
 
As you can appreciate while the Church is currently closed to the public for Masses, the expenses continue to come in for overheads for the church and the parish hall.
We very much need, and would be very grateful for your ongoing financial support.
 
Thank you,
The Parish Finance Committee

Day of Prayer for Victims and Survivors of Abuse

The following text for prayer was sent to Archbishop Diarmuid Martin by a person who suffered abuse so that it could be shared in parishes. This prayer was inscribed on the healing stone which was unveiled at the 50th International Eucharistic Congress 2012 and now has its permanent home at Lough Derg, Co Donegal. 

Lord, we are so sorry
for what some of us did to your children:
treated them so cruelly,
especially in their hour of need.
We have left them with a lifelong suffering.

This was not your plan for them or us.
Please help us to help them.
Guide us, Lord, Amen.

Lenten Stepping Stones

There will a series of short live reflections streamed online on Wednesdays of Lent at 1.30pm lasting just 15 minutes; beginning next Wednesday, 24th February at 1.30pm.

They are called “Stepping Stones for Lent” – in other words, helps to guide us spiritually through this holy season. Each Wednesday there will be a short introduction, a short spoken reflection from a guest speaker and a short prayer-time to conclude.

It will be live streamed on two places: the Facebook Page of the Diocese and the YouTube channel of the diocese.
