Please join us on New Year’s Eve at Sunday mass to celebrate the launch of WMF2018. The mass will celebrate all that is ‘family’ and it will be a time of celebration and reflection. Our very own Glin Icon of the Holy Family will be blessed at this mass and if you wish you will have an opportunity to take the icon to your home as it is shared among our Glin Community! It will be a lovely mass with music and song and reflections, so please come along, all are welcome. In the words of Pope Francis “The family, the home is where faith is learned and grows. Love is shown by little things, by attention to small daily signs which make us feel at home. Let us pray that the church will always be a place of mercy and hope where everyone is welcomed, loved and forgiven and all families are valued
