Parish Newsletter- 4th April 2021: EASTER SUNDAY

COVID-19 MASS ARRANGEMENTS
Due to level 5 Government Restrictions, all non-essential public ceremonies are suspended. Therefore all public Weekday and Weekend Masses are suspended until further notice.
Sunday Mass from Clara at 11.30am can be viewed by going online to ‘YouTube’ and searching ‘St. Brigid’s Church, Clara’.
The Parish Office will also be closed. Anyone wishing to book or rearrange Masses, please leave a message on the answering machine and we will return your call.
The Churches will remain open for people to spend time in prayer in the Presence of the Lord. People are encouraged to enter into spiritual communion through Mass being live-streamed from some of the other parishes in this or other dioceses. Also, there may be services on local radio or RTÉ that people can access.

Light streams into an empty tomb, falling on discarded robes. The dark interior is in contrast to the bright sky which can be seen through the doorway

Lord God, You loved this world so much that you gave your one and only Son, that we might be called your children too. Lord, help us to live in the gladness and grace of Easter Sunday, every day. Let us have hearts of thankfulness for your sacrifice of love. Let us have eyes that look upon Your grace and rejoice in our salvation. Help us to walk in that mighty grace and tell your good news to the world. Father, Thank You for the miracle of life—abundant life here, and eternal life with You in Heaven. Help me celebrate that life every day as I seek You and follow Your plan for my life. On Easter Sunday and every day, I say with the Apostle Paul, “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?”. All we ask through the Risen Lord, Amen.

PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS
Lord with the gift of courage we can do all manner of things in service of you. You desire we listen to the voice of your Son and so discover the truth about you. He is the gate which you have opened that we may enter in and out and be saved. Help young men and women discover in Priesthood and Consecrated Life His voice and share the fullness of life you promise. May the example of Christ who gives His Body and Blood inspire them to follow Him and minister to others. We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.
