WMoF2018 Limerick Launch 8th October 2017

This is a chance for every family to experience our diocesan family as a welcoming, joy-filled, prayerful community where they can feel at home. This is an opportunity to start a movement that might lead to families from your parish attending World Meeting of Families next year in Dublin. This is a moment that will not come again, so please don't wait to see how it turns out before you decide to participate! 

There will be face painting and a mobile farm, interactive science projects and water zorbs, teen activities with limerick youth service, tag archery and a Poc Fada, music and art, food stalls and prayer spaces - all brought together with a festive Mass with Bishop Leahy at 4pm.
Join us - as we celebrate our diocesan family!
Sunday, October 8th from 1-5pm.

Please get involved - we are all part of the one diocesan family, so this is an event for everyone, of every age, who wants to support good family ministry in our diocese

Join us - Bígí Linn!

Gospel - Matthew 21:28-32

‘What do you think? A man had two sons; he went to the first and said, “Son, go and work in the vineyard today.” He answered, “I will not”; but later he changed his mind and went. The father went to the second and said the same; and he answered, “I go, sir”; but he did not go. Which of the two did the will of his father?’ They said, ‘The first.’ Jesus said to them, ‘Truly I tell you, the tax-collectors and the prostitutes are going into the kingdom of God ahead of you. For John came to you in the way of righteousness and you did not believe him, but the tax-collectors and the prostitutes believed him; and even after you saw it, you did not change your minds and believe him.
