Note from Bishop Denis Nulty:

In these days, the Catholic Church throughout the world and in Ireland is beginning a series of conversations about what God wants of his people at this time. On this Sunday 17th. October we mark the opening of this Synodal Process. The next two years will be a time of prayer, listening and discernment, involving a consultative conversation. This will allow all people – both within the Church and in society at large, to share their insights into the Catholic Church in Ireland – past, present and future – so that we can prepare for a National Synodal Assembly in the coming years.

“Twenty-Ninth Sunday of the Year”    –    17th. October 2021

First Reading:

A Reading from the Prophet Isaiah:

The Lord has been pleased to crush his servant with suffering.  If he offers his life in atonement, he shall see his heirs; he shall have a long life and through him what the Lord wishes will be done.

His soul’s anguish over, he shall see the light and be content.

By his sufferings shall my servant justify many, taking their faults on himself.      

The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm:  

Response:       May your love be upon us, O Lord, as we place all our hope in you.

The word of the Lord is faithful and all his works to be trusted.

The Lord loves justice and right and fills the earth with his love.                              R.

The Lord looks on those who revere him, on those who hope in his love,

to rescue their souls from death, to keep them alive in famine.                                  R.

Our soul is waiting for the Lord. The Lord is our help and our shield.

May your love be upon us, O Lord, as we place all our hope in you.                       R.

Second Reading:

A Reading from the Letter to the Hebrews:

Since in Jesus, the Son of God, we have the supreme high priest who has gone through to the highest heaven, we must never let go of the faith that we have professed. For it is not as if we had a high priest who was incapable of feeling our weaknesses with us; but we have one who has been tempted in every way that we are, though he is without sin. Let us be confident, then, in approaching the throne of grace, that we shall have mercy from him and find grace when we are in need of help.                                     

The Word of the Lord.

Gospel Acclamation:

Alleluia, alleluia!  

I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, says the Lord; No one can come to the Father except through me.



A Reading from the Holy Gospel of St. Mark:

James and John, the sons of Zebedee, approached Jesus. ‘Master,’ they said to him ‘we want you to do us a favour.’ He said to them, ‘What is it you want me to do for you?’ They said to him, ‘Allow us to sit one at your right hand and the other at your left in your glory.’ ‘You do not know what you are asking’ Jesus said to them. ‘Can you drink the cup that I must drink, or be baptised with the baptism with which I must be baptised?’ They replied, ‘We can.’ Jesus said to them, ‘The cup that I must drink you shall drink, and with the baptism with which I must be baptised you shall be baptised, but as for seats at my right hand or my left, these are not mine to grant; they belong to those to whom they have been allotted.’

When the other ten heard this they began to feel indignant with James and John, so Jesus called them to him and said to them, ‘You know that among the pagans their so-called rulers lord it over them, and their great men make their authority felt. This is not to happen among you. No; anyone who wants to become great among you must be your servant, and anyone who wants to be first among you must be slave to all. For the Son of Man himself did not come to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.’                                                                      

The Gospel of the Lord.

Mission Sunday    (Sunday 24th. October 2021)

The month of October provides us with an opportunity to express our gratitude for the contribution we, as Irish people, have made to the mission of the Church to spread the Gospel of Christ in different parts of the world.  We remember and give thanks for the courage, the enthusiasm and the generosity of so many women and men.

World Mission Sunday is the Holy Father’s annual appeal to support overseas mission and missionaries. This fund supports missionary activities in Africa, Asia and Latin America. It provides basic infrastructure by helping communities to build schools, health clinics, parish communities and churches.  It prepares leaders and carers who will offer safe shelter, healthcare, education and hope for the future.

To support the Mission Sunday Appeal next Sunday, please use the Envelope provided in the Church Porch and place it in the Collection Box at the Church Door or you may donate directly:  Account Name: Missio Ireland.
