Bishop Martin Hayes will be the principal celebrant of a special Mass in the Cathedral of Saint Patrick & Saint Felim, Cavan to commemorate this milestone anniversary on Saturday 16 March 2024 at 11:00a.m.  The Mass will be broadcast live and may be accessed at www.churchservices.tv/cavancathedral .  Following Mass, there will be commemorative events in the original College building including a short talk by Monsignor Liam Kelly, followed by refreshments in the new College Canteen.  Past students of the College are especially welcome to attend.

Ever wondered about the reasons behind our actions during Mass? Curious about the true significance of it all and the origins of the Mass itself?  Have you ever heard someone say, "I'm not getting much from Mass"? Maybe the real question is, "What am I contributing to Mass? Am I genuinely involved, or just an observer?"

You are warmly invited to join Bishop Martin and members of the Kilmore Diocesan Pastoral Development Team on a unique three-week online series to explore these questions and more with videos explaining the different parts of the Mass, interactive discussions, personal stories, and an opportunity to ask questions. The sessions are continuing on Wednesday evenings: Wednesday 6th and 13th  March at 7.30pm. Each session lasts an hour and a half.  Everyone is most welcome!

Millions Facing Starvation in Ethiopia

All are encouraged to please pray for the people of Tigray in Ethiopa, where drought and civil war have left many in crisis and in danger of starvation.  Mary’s Meals feeds tens of thousands of children one meal in school each day in the region.  If you feel called to support our mission, and to help us reach more children, please visit marysmeals.ie or contact 01 8535163.

Mary’s Meals is a registered charity: 20061920 CHY16897. 

Thank You.

Ever wondered about the reasons behind our actions during Mass? Curious about the true significance of it all and the origins of the Mass itself? Have you ever heard someone say, "I'm not getting much from Mass"? Maybe the real question is, "What am I contributing to Mass? Am I genuinely involved, or just an observer?"  You are warmly invited to join Bishop Martin and members of the Kilmore Diocesan Pastoral Development Team on a unique three-week online series to explore these questions and more with videos explaining the different parts of the Mass, interactive discussions, personal stories, and an opportunity to ask questions. The sessions will run on three Tuesday evenings:           February 27th, March 5th, and March 12th. Each session will start at 7:30 pm. and last an hour and a half. Everyone is most welcome! To register, please send your name and email address to pastoralcentre@kilmorediocese.ie

In acknowledging how we have benefitted from science and technology Pope Francis calls for responsible development, regulation, and oversight of AI (Artificial Intelligence) technologies. He reminds us that the measure of true humanity lies in how we treat the least among us and he expresses the hope that AI development may contribute to human fraternity and world peace.

As we celebrate the example of the Holy Family this weekend may I also encourage you to pray for world peace on Monday, 1st January 2024.

We trust that our prayer at home and in our parishes will bring peace to our troubled world and especially to the Holy Land where God sent his Son, Jesus to be among us.

+Martin Hayes, Bishop of Kilmore.
