One of our Parishoners Des Keegan wrote the following poem in honour of Vincent Garvey who recentely celebrated his 100th birthday.

 HAPPY 100th BIRTHDAY

Maistir. You soldiered from  The Kingdom, to your Royal County seat. Spreading words of Wisdom, to the hundreds you would meet.You schooled your way through decades, on a mission, it would seem. To educate, and mould and shape, your fellow human being. A man of words, and love of man. A man of faith and size. Just look around and you will see, your worth is recognised. A Hundred Days, A Hundred Nights, you inspired so many lives. And we all pray, when you see this day you will be reenergised. And when another  Kingdom beckons, it will be at God's command. We will treasure you, until that day, when your maker shakes your hand.

THE BAPTISM OF THE LORD

This Sunday we celebrate THE BAPTISM OF THE LORD. Jesus is anointed with the spirit and his power. He is proclaimed Messiah. He now goes about doing good, working the signs that made him known as the Servant of God. He is the one who brings good news to the poor and tells of salvation.Through our Baptism each one of us is ordered to the life of Christ - Priest, Prophet and King- and the Father looks on us with favour.
