The cost of the box is €120.00. Full details available from the Parish Office.

Mission Statement

Graiguecullen Killeshin parish is a welcoming, worshipping, community, committed to living the Gospel in our daily lives. Nourished by the Eucharist we strive to live in justice, truth, love and peace, so that others may say of us: “See how these Christians love one another. Our churches, celebrations and ceremonies are open to all people of goodwill. There is a seat reserved for you at the Lords table in St Clares or Holy Cross church every Sunday and special feast day. Your participation will strengthen the Body of Christ so as to serve the whole community. All our Ministry Groups are open to all and you are always welcome to join any of them.

Harvest Thanksgiving Weekend

Today we thank God for the Harvest and we ask Him to help us share what we have with those who are in need. At all our Masses this weekend we will bless the food items people have placed in our Sacred Space. The food will then be used in St Clare’s Hospitality Food Kitchen as our way of giving thanks for the Harvest and of sharing our harvest with others.

God we thank you for your harvest which feeds us so many times each day. We are nourished with your forgiveness and hope. We are sustained with your strength and patience. We are filled with your grace and compassion.

God we thank you for feeding us with a harvest of plenty. We are restored through your generosity and healing. We are replenished with your abundance and joy. We are reminded of your selfless abandon.

God we thank you for feeding us with the bread of heaven. Your gift of Christ sustains our lives. His presence restores the promise of your love. His life fills our hearts with your everlasting light.

God we thank you too for filling us with the water of life. May we drink deeply that our thirst may be quenched. May your river continue to flow Over us, in us, through us And out into the world you love.
