It is February since I last posted anything on my blog. This happened as much by accident as by design. Lent was busy and since 2012, I have the additional call on my time being part of the Provincial Council of the Passionists. This involves a meeting every month to six weeks in either Dublin or Belfast. Excuses, excuses...........
Last weekend was great here. On Saturday there were 60 children who made their First Communion. The next day, Pentecost, 40 received Confirmation. This weekend there is the annual Summer Fair at St Joseph's. This involves a lot of preparation and planning. The generosity of parishioners who do all this is exceptional. Fine weather is all that is needed now.
The Referendum in Ireland attracted great attention. I was a panel member on France 24 on their 'The Debate' programme last week.
It is my hope to keep the posts on the blog coming at a more regular interval. A.T.
