If you are able to come a little earlier to Mass please join us as we Praise God
in prayers that are older than the Church itself.
LET'S DO LENT (IDEAS FOR LENT 2017)
1. Fast, maybe skip one meal from time to time....a gentle fast like this will refresh our memory that many people in the world go hungry every day. 2. Meditation & Prayer - these lead to a closer connection with God; do the stations of the Cross or spend a Holy Hour before the Blessed Sacrament. 3. A weekend away from the mobile. 4. Visit a neighbour/relative in long term nursing home. NEW WORK OF ART FOR KELLS CHURCH * The work to erect the new work of art on the theme of Creation begins this week and hopefully it will be in place by the end of the week. * The Parish Community
thanks those parishioners who have made a financial contribution towards the cost of the work. * If any other person or group wishes to make a contribution they may contact Fr. John, Fr. Liam or the Parish Office. Your support would be appreciated.

OPENING HYMN FOR THE SUNDAYS OF LENT God of Mercy and compassion, Look with pity upon me. Father, let me call thee Father, For I now return to thee. Jesus Lord, I ask for mercy, Let me not implore in vain, All my sins I now reject them Never will I sin again. By my sins I have abandoned Right and claim to heaven above, Where the saints rejoice forever In a boundless sea of love. Jesus Lord.......
