MASS INTENTIONS FROM SUNDAY 8th December 2019

Refurbishment of the Sanctuary

Over the past few months our Architect Colm Redmond and Gavin Duignan from Irish Contract Seating who will make the furniture, have taken our basic ideas and worked them into something worthy of our Church.

A display of all the elements and prices is at the back of the Church. If you would like to make a donation towards the new furniture envelopes are available. Already the Scripture Group have fundraised the cost of the Ambo. Other pieces of furniture are credence table, offertory table, sanctuary lamp. A cover will be put over the radiator that runs along the wall.

BIBLE STUDY 2019

FIRST CORINTHIANS

In January 2020, 36 people will  commence our 11 week study of St Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians. The Scripture Study group meets from 7.30 to 9pm on Monday nights in St. Cronan’s Pastoral Centre.  New members are always welcome even if it is just to attend for a week or two to see if it might suit you.

 

St. Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians addresses many of the same topics in the news headlines today: scandals, promiscuity, debates and controversies, and issues related to prosperity versus poverty. Clearly, the struggles faced by the early Christians are in many ways similar to our own.

First Corinthians: The Church and the Christian Community explores the key elements of the gospel message that Paul introduced to a new and growing Church. Presenter Tim Gray examines Paul’s advice for living an authentic Christian life in a pagan culture, as well as his teachings about the nature of grace, the Church as the body of Christ, and the most powerful gift of all—the Eucharist.
