Windows in Watergrasshill
Work will begin on the windows (upper,
round shaped) on the Glenville side of the
Church fairly soon. They were letting in
water and a temporary sealing was
carried out. A more permanent solution
will be carried out by Mossie Cronin with
Sean McCarthy as engineer. Thanks to
both.


No US Trip
Because the US is still banning ordinary
visitors from Europe, I will not be making
my annual visit to Los Angeles in August. I
hope to do so instead in January. My
thanks to the Dominican Fathers for
agreeing to cover my original parish
duties: Now I am hoping they do so in
January!

Offertory Collection: July 11th €1191
Diocesan needs €236

The Family Carer Support Project’s aim, is to
enhance the wellbeing of Family Carers of
older people in Cork & Kerry, by offering the
opportunity to work with the Carer Wellbeing
Manager, Lynne Dennehy.  Lynne will work
with the Family Carer to find out what their
needs are, and to develop an action plan to
support the Family Carer to meet them.  No
question or problem is too big or too small.
visit the projects website
on https://www.familycarers.ie/fcsp.
We have left an information leaflet in both
Churches.

Sr. Anne Cahill
Very shortly Sister Anne’s mission work in
Tanzania will come to an end. Her work
educating young girls, in a culture that did not
encourage it, was extraordinary.
She will return to her Order’s House in Cork
(Our Lady of Africa) in the fall of the year.
We publish her most recent letter – please take
a copy home with you.

Sporting Heroics

In a week in which there was so much hype elsewhere about sporting events we had our own sporting heroes. Daire O’Leary (Thomas and Aine’s son) and Shane O’Regan (Martin and Orla’s son) shone for the under 20 victorious Cork team. Alison Bergin (Shane and Eleanor’s daughter) had a wonderful week at the European rowing championships in the Czech Republic, reaching two finals. Go n-eiri leo!


“This is important:
to get to know people,
listen, expand the circle of ideas.
The world is crisscrossed
by roads that come closer
together and move apart,
but the important thing
is that they lead towards the Good”
Pope Francis
