I am delighted to share the news that we will be launching a Caherconlish Caherline PARISH FUNDRAISING LOTT0. Initially, we hope to raise funds to put in Live Streaming in our Churches. The Lotto will also be a way of supplementing our parish income into the future and ensuring that we can continue to be an active, inclusive, and vibrant faith community. The parish lotto is online, requires no physical contact and is simple and easy to join. To enter you pick 4 numbers or you can use our Quick pick. The draw is every Thursday @ 8pm and our first draw is on 14th October 2021. Match 4 numbers to win our Jackpot and if the Jackpot is not won, we will draw a weekly winner for a small prize. We hope that the €2 per line option will allow everybody to contribute and if you can contribute €5 for 3 lines it would be hugely appreciated. Everyone has a chance of winning and it could be you.

PARISH ENVELOPES: We thank you for your generosity in returning the weekly/monthly envelopes. These can be put in the safe (brown) box in either Church. Weekly basket collection is replaced by putting offerings in the safe box and box left out during Masses at the end of the Church.

SEASON of CREATION: 1st Sept – 4th Oct For a long time, we humans have looked down on the creatures of the Earth as “brute beasts”. If they are of use to us – fine! If they’re not – ignore them or brush them aside. In recent years, it has become ever more obvious that the world has a single web of life. Over millions of years through the process of evolution, plants, animals, and humans all developed from common ancestors. Every creature is a precious gift from God the Creator.

Pope Francis is urging us to see that we have a crucial role to play in ensuring that the inter-linked web of life is not damaged. One major threat to animal, bird and fish life is Plastic. In this Season of Creation, let each of us in Caherconlish & Caherline reduce our use of Plastics – bottles, containers, nets, fabrics.

Caherconlish Football Club: TRAINING: Every Tuesday evening 6-30 7-30 pm in the GAA Field. It is very important that everyone completes the Return to play Health Questionnaire which can be accessed at this year. It needs to be completed before every training session and match.
