Good Intentions
During the ‘lockdown’ many people found
themselves turning to nature. There was a surge
of interest in gardening. We planted seeds,
started herb gardens and tended to flower
beds.
Lots of people noticed the birds singing for the
first time in years. In the midst of challenging
times, we found ourselves turning to the
wonder of God’s creation all around us.
As we emerge from a challenging few months,
let us use the Season of Creation to reflect on
how we can do better – to reconnect with God’s
beautiful creation and do all we can to love and
preserve it.
When it comes to caring for the earth, good intentions are not enough.
Our actions matter.

We need stewards at all Masses for both
Watergrasshill and Glenville.

Please call me or the Office to volunteer.
Their duties would be to keep an eye on
available seating and direct people to those
places. We are now reaching full capacity (50) in
each of our Churches and we need to welcome
people in safety for our Masses.
There will be a sign CHURCH FULL left at the
entrance to indicate full capacity.
From the second week of October, priority will
be given to listed townlands as outlined in the
Newsletter. With Station season coming up,
this would also act as a Station Mass and your
Dues could be brought at that time together
with weekly offerings. This should not prevent
others from coming but these townlands will
get guaranteed seating. If we had one person
from the relevant townland who will steward
for that Mass, we would be grateful. Please
continue to use the collection buckets at the
end of each Church for weekly offerings and
Dues when the time comes.
People need to feel safe when they come to
Church, please assist us in making this possible.
Please note the following
– Please do not stand at the rear of the
Church
– Please wear a face covering
– Please observe social distancing while
lining for Holy Communion
– Please do not all leave the Church at
the same time
If you are a visitor, please sign your name and
contact number on the Book at the rear of the
Church.
