Sincere thanks to all who are helping with cleaning and stewarding. and to our sacristans.
Please contact me if you can help, and if you are a new volunteer you would
be most welcome.
It is great to get back to Mass, and thanks to all who made it possible,
by sacrifices made over the last months.

A prayer for those doing exams
(St Cronan’s cluster of parishes, Roscrea)

God, love them and sustain them;
renew and support them with your strength;
pour out your
Spirit of wisdom on them;

help them to remain calm
and to attend carefully to the questions
help them to think clearly,
to remember accurately
and to express themselves well.
they reflect the best of the work they have done
and the best of the teaching they have

May your love be upon them, Lord, as they place their trust in you.
May the power of
your love enable them to accomplish what is right and good.
