Don’t undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. Its is because we are different that each on of us is special.

Don’t set your goals by what other people deem important. Only you know what is best for you.

Don’t take for granted the things closest to your heart. Cling to them as you would your life, for without them life is meaningless.

Don’t let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past.

By living your life one day at a time, you live all the days of your life.

Don’t give up when you still have something to give. Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.

Don’t be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect. It is this fragile thread that binds us to each other.

Don’t be afraid to encounter risks. It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.

Don’t shut love out of your life by saying it is impossible to find.

The quickest way to receive love is to give love.

The fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly;

And the best way to keep love is to give it wings.

Don’t run through life so fast that you forget not only where you’ve been but also where you’re going.

Life is not a race, but a journey to be savoured each step of the way.

Comhghairdeas le Rang 6: Bhí trathnóna gallanta againn  ag an Scoil De Ceadaoine. Go raibh maith do Fhoireann na Scoile uilig agus na Parents Committee for such a great end to the school year for Rang 6.

Buíochas: I am very thankful to all those who have helped out in the Church and Grounds in both Carrick and Meenaneary in recent times. A special thanks to Brendan Byrne for his organisation of the interior of the Church, to Jim McLaughlin for his continued help and security of the Church. Buíochas Mór do Katie Doherty in Meenaneary for her work in the Church during this difficult time. Also to all the Scheme Workers who have kept our grounds looking so very well. Maith sibh.

Mass during the coming Week:

All are asked to use the designated seats and respect social distancing. Family seats will be designated. Communion will be given at the end of Mass to minimise movement. No standing at back of Church. There are many other things we need to consider but for the moment I ask for you co-operation patience and advice at this time. Go raibh maith agaibh.      

Protection from Covit 19 is still very important.

Physical distancing (2 meter distance to be adhered to at all times)

Good hand hygiene (please use hand sanitiser entering and leaving the Church)

Respiratory etiquette( Sneeze cough into your sleeve)
