Welcome to Graiguecullen & Killeshin Parish
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.
World Mission Sunday
This year’s theme for Mission Sunday is ‘Together We Are Mission’ and it’s a message for everyone. As Pope Francis said in his World Mission Sunday message, ‘I am a mission, always; you are a mission, always; every baptised man and woman is a mission.’ This goes to the heart of our baptismal call. It also challenges the idea that mission work is solely done by missionaries, by asking people to consider the part their own missionary hearts can play in changing the lives of others.
Pope Francis has designated this month as an extraordinary Month of Mission. Since its announcement in 1926 by Pope Pius XI, the entire global Church comes together during this time to support mission. Our Church is a global community. We depend on one another, on our shared prayer, solidarity and generosity. This special papal celebration recognises this by calling every parish, in every corner of the world, to stand together and share what they can – no matter how little.
St Clare’s Hospitality
Mon – Fri: 12.30pm – 2.30pm
The service is free of charge but a donation box is available at the door.
We are currently making up to 50 food parcels a week as well as feeding around 80 people in our food kitchen each day.
Donations go directly to helping local people in need. We are extremely grateful to everyone who donates their time and/or money to this cause. Just a reminder about our food bins at the church doors and in the Parish Centre. We would really appreciate any donations of tinned peas, beans, cooking rice, coffee, custard powder etc. as our stocks are low.
