FORÓIGE
Shine a Light
At a recent meeting, Kilbrittain Foroige club welcomed Dick White and Paul Sheehan of Focus Ireland to our weekly meeting. Mr White had previously spoken to the group before the overnight last year. He inspired each member of the club to take part in a special effort to raise funds for the worthy cause of homelessness and in particular the Shine a Light campaign.
This is our second year taking part in this very worthwhile initiative. As individuals and as a group we learned a lot form this campaign for Focus Ireland. 24 members and our leaders took part that evening and we would like to thank the leaders for making this possible. The money raised were thanks to efforts of the members with sponsorship cards and the local businesses for allowing us to place collection buckets for the fundraising effort.
In total we raised €877.94. Olivia Tuthill (club treasurer) presented the cheque to Dick White on behalf of the club. It was an honour to take part in this fundraising event for a worthy cause.

European Elections
I wish to publicly express my personal thanks to our fellow-parishioner, Theresa Heaney, Bayview, Maryboro, for standing as an Independent Candidate for the European Parliament in the election next Friday, 24th May. I wish her well because her pro-life and pro-family views are shared with, and based on, the One True Faith.

With regard to the elections and the referendum, alas precedent has shown time and again that a majority of Irish Catholics leave their Baptismal Promises at home when they head out to vote, resulting in many cases in their embracing of Satan instead of renouncing him.
— Fr Jerry.

Episcopal Ordination
Fr Fintan Gavin will be ordained Bishop of Cork & Ross on Sunday 30th June. He has allocated each parish seven tickets to the Ceremony in the Cathedral and to supper afterwards in Rochestown Park Hotel. These tickets have been sent to the parishes now. We are inviting applications for these tickets immediately as RSVP is Sat next, 1st June. If we have more than seven applications, allocation will be decided by draw. Before applying be aware of the following:
Ceremony starts at 3.00 pm, attendees to be in place before 2.30 pm. Ceremony is expected to last about two hours.
Ample parking in supervised car parks at Farrenferris College (850 metres walk to Cathedral) and North Monastery (400 metres)
If you are going to the Cathedral you must also commit to going to Rochestown Park, as each accepted ticket will dictate numbers given to Hotel and it would be unfair on the Diocese to be left paying for empty places.
Text or email Fr Cremin on or before Friday with names of those who would wish to go.
