Congress Parish Mass

Below are some photos from our parish celebration of the International Eucharistic Congress, where we welcomed especially our schoolchildren and parents. The last time the Congress was in Ireland was in 1932, exactly 80 years ago. Some people who were at school then were at the Congress Mass and they still have happy memories of it. We hope that by having our Congress Mass here in Harold’s Cross our children will also have happy memories, when they are old, of the time they celebrated the Congress in 2012.

Thanks to our parish committee who organised the Mass, with great cooperation from our three schools. And a big thank you to Fr Michael Drumm, Chair of the Catholic Schools Partnership, for coming to be with us. We ask God to bless him as he guides and safeguards Catholic school education in the years to come.

How Far the Horizon
You want to travel?
You want to set foot on new lands, and walk along the world’s edge?
You want to live and to satisfy your thirst for more abundant life,
To fling wide the gates of your mind and be enriched by wisdom.
Travel where you wish to go, scale all the mountains and cross every ocean.
Remember this only:
The miles are ahead of you
The obstacles are within you.
Life is a voyage. Some people sit and watch, heedless of the heart’s urge and the spirit’s deepest need to launch out. Others drift here and there on the waves. They have chosen the safety of the shallows and turned their back on the promise of the deep. A sturdy few hammer their own craft together, cast off from the land and go. These know how to reach out and receive the gift of life.
