Knock National Novena Postponed Until Later This Year:

“At this time the national Marian Shrine is open to the public and pilgrims for the celebration of daily Mass with restricted capacity at Knock Basilica” – Father Gibbons

Parish priest and rector of Knock Shrine, Father Richard Gibbons, has announced that the National Novena to Our Lady of Knock is being postponed until later this year.  The annual novena of prayer and reflection was due to take place next month from the 14 to 22 August.

Father Richard said, “we have taken this difficult decision in the interest of the health and safety of our pilgrims and staff here at the Shrine.  Given the recent concern from both government and health agencies regarding the Delta variant of the coronavirus, the responsible course of action is to postpone the National Novena at this time.”

Father Richard expressed his disappointment at the postponement of the Novena for the second year in a row, and his hope that the national celebration of faith will take place later this year.  He said, “it is vital that we allow the national vaccination programme to proceed across all age groups.  Once we can safely gather again at Knock Shrine a full programme will be announced for the Novena to take place later in the year.”

Father Richard continued, “At this time the national Marian Shrine is open to the public and pilgrims for the celebration of daily Mass with restricted capacity at Knock Basilica.  The Sacrament of Confession is available daily as well as other services including the Mass Enrolment Office, Knock Museum and Knock Counselling Centre.”


“We continue to welcome pilgrims to the Shrine.  All who visit can be rest assured that Knock is a very safe place and that every precaution is in place to ensure the safety of all our pilgrims.  We have queueing systems in place at all public buildings on the grounds of the Shrine, as well as ushers and staff that are present to ensure everything is done correctly and in line with latest public health guidelines,” Father Richard said.

Throughout the month of August additional Masses will be available.  Full details are available on the Knock Shrine website www.knockshrine.ie

·         The story of Knock began on the 21 August 1879 when Our Lady, Saint Joseph and Saint John the Evangelist appeared at the south gable of Knock Parish Church.  This miraculous silent apparition was witnessed by fifteen people, young and old.  Knock is an internationally recognised Marian Shrine and was visited by Pope Saint John Paul II in 1979 as part of his apostolic pilgrimage, and in 2018 by Pope Francis as part of the celebrations in Ireland for the IX World Meeting of Families.  On 19 March 2021, Pope Francis officially recognised Knock as an International Marian Shrine through the Pontifical Council for New Evangelisation. Archbishop Michael Neary, Archbishop of Tuam, is the custodian of the Marian Shrine and Father Richard Gibbons is parish priest of Knock and rector of the shrine.  Please see www.knockshrine.ie for more information.

Archbishop O’Reilly Congratulates Limerick Senior Hurling Team On Winning Their Third Consecutive Munster Title:

·        Statement of Archbishop Kieran O’Reilly, Patron of Cumann Lúthchleas Gael

I wish to congratulate the Limerick senior hurling team and management on their fantastic achievement of winning three Munster titles in a row 2019-2021.  The Archdiocese of Cashel and Emly includes 14 parishes in Co. Limerick and I am delighted to acknowledge the serious contribution of the following in this wonderful success:

John Kiely (team manager), Kieran Hickey and Mark Quinlan (Parish of Galbally and Lisvernane)

Darragh O’Donovan, (Parish of Oola / Solohead) Richie English, Barry Murphy, Pat Ryan (Parish of Doon) Eibhear O’Dea, Denny Ahern, Brian O’Grady (Parish of Kilteely / Dromkeen) Ger O’Connell (Parish of Pallasgreen / Templebraden) Sean O’Donnell (Parish of Knocklong / Glenbrohane)

I also offer congratulations to the Tipperary team on reaching this final and for their part in making it a memorable game.  Being a Cork native, and a former Bishop of Killaloe, I have, as they say, a lot of ‘skin’ in the forthcoming All Ireland series.  May the best team win!

As the Proud Patron of the G.A.A. I really commend the G.A.A. (and all sporting organisations) for bringing live and exciting matches into our homes over the course of the last year and a half.  I feel certain that these matches have brought excitement, comfort and, hopefully, a little healing, to those in our communities up and down the country who have suffered loss, pain and bereavement during the Pandemic.  It is wonderful to think that our superb players, in all codes, are contributing to the healing of a nation.  May I wish Team Ireland, including athletes from this Diocese, all the best at the Olympics, and pray that, they too, will contribute even further to the wellbeing and health of our people.

A mhuintir Spóirt uilig na hÉireann, go gcumhdaí Dia sibh go léir, agus go dtaca Sé le bhur gcuid oibre ar ár son.

Courage Enshrined!:

How the sculpture shown expresses courage needs no explanation!  We all need them to do certain things!  The experience of Corona has affected everyone’s life and restricted us to greater or lesser degrees.  For most it’s been a very difficult time, while for others it simply reinforced a natural predisposition to stay secure and safe inside their own particular bubble.  Most of us settle for a tiny fraction of the life that is meant to be ours.  We cocoon ourselves inside a small comfort zone where the challenges of life are met with excuses rather than genuine reasons.  So we never travel a different route, we don’t ever venture into unfamiliar territory, and we rarely attempt anything new or different.  Approaching the edge of our comfort zone we will always be confronted by our fears that screech ‘what if’.  So we back off, but each time we do our world gets smaller.  On the other hand if we could place courage in front of our fear, and still move forward, we would then find that our world begins to expand as we open ourselves to new and exciting possibilities. Life is never to be found inside our comfort zone but only as we approach the edge.  As we extend the boundary we are reclaiming the life that is ours.

Ballylanders Development Association:

The Ballylanders Development Association recently held a meeting, which was open to all members of the Ballylanders community and beyond. 

At this meeting, Chairperson, Damien Fitzgerald informed attendees of the great news that funding applications through both the CLÁR and LEADER funding projects have been successful.  This funding is for improvement works to be made to the local Village Park & Playground. 

€50k was approved through CLÁR towards a Service Building, which would incorporate toilets and covered barbeque / picnic area.  Also part of this project is a Wellness / Sensory Garden. 

€39,914k was received through LEADER for additional playground equipment and associated works. 

As part of funding these projects, there will be a shortfall in funding that the committee and the wider Ballylanders community will need to help with. 

Further meetings will be held in the coming months to organise fundraising initiatives, and we very much hope that the whole community will get on board. 

The works that will be carried out in the coming months will further enhance our Village Park and Playground and will benefit users of all ages and abilities. 

The success of our future fundraising will rely heavily on the support of our local community and beyond, and the Ballylanders Development Association hopes that everyone helps in some way to achieve this. 

Also discussed at this meeting was the issue of Traffic Calming in Ballylanders Village. 

Limerick Council has informed the Ballylanders Development Association that Traffic Calming plans are currently at planning stage.  Following this meeting with the community, the BDA have contacted Limerick Council and made the recommendation that five (5) ramps be installed from the top of the Village to the bottom by the Park. 

We sincerely hope that our recommendation is considered and that we have traffic calming in place in Ballylanders in the coming months. 

Please keep your eye on the Ballylanders Community Facebook page for future updates and meeting notices.

Week Ending 25th July 

Sunday 25th July 2021 – 17th Sunday of Ordinary Time

Feast of Saint Joachim and Saint Anne:

Next Monday July 26th is the Feast of Saint Joachim and Saint Anne.  They were the grandparents of Jesus.  This feast day reminds us very clearly about the human side of Jesus as a person.  Pope Francis has introduced an international day for grandparents, he did this to underline the significant role they play in their grandchildren’s lives.  In our own time we see grandparents playing a more and more significant role in raising the children. 

Grandparents also have an abundance of lived experience and it’s great to see that they now have an opportunity to pass this along to a future generation.  Parents today live a hurried life, grandparents on the other hand have a lot more unhurried time.  They remind everyone of the need of down time, just be, be present, as the bible says ‘for everything there is a time’. Thank you, grandparents, for reminding us and for being such good role models.

Catholic Grandparents Association:

Pope Francis announced earlier this year that on Sunday, July 25th 2021, we will remember the influence of grandparents and elderly people.  As a result, the monthly Mass and Prayers of the Catholic Grandparents Association will be postponed from the second Tuesday of this month until Tuesday, July 27th.   This celebration will take place in St. John the Baptist Church in Cashel at 10.30am and we invite you to join us on churchcamlive.ie/cashel.   As we give thanks for all grandparents that are still with us, we will remember in a special way all grandparents who are no longer with us. 

Please find attached a memorial page.  These can be left in the churches.  Please invite your congregation to bring a pen to church and leave the names of grandparents gone to their eternal reward on these pages.  These can be used within the parish or returned to Cashel Parish Office, Friar St, Cashel before the Tuesday Mass.  May St. Joachim and St. Anne pray for us.

Yours sincerely, Very Rev. Enda Brady, PP, CGA Munster Province Chaplain.
