Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Takes place January 18th to 25th. Our own Christian unity will be discovered not only through showing hospitality to one another, but also through loving encounters with those who do not share our language or culture. As St. Paul proclaimed in Rome, it is God’s will that salvation is for all peoples. (see Acts 28:28).

Catholic Schools Week 2020

26th January to 2nd February. The theme this year is: Living in Harmony with God’s Creation. As Irish society changes, it is important that we reflect on the unique contribution of Catholic schools to our collective goal of education. Catholic schools offer a view of the world as the gift of God’s creation. We are called to be co-creators of love and joy in the world, thus sharing God’s love.

We are called to be stewards of the environment, with a responsibility to protect the environment around us for future generations.

Diocese of Limerick Theology on Tap

Check it fits

Since October 2013, the RSA’s ‘Check it Fits’ Service has checked over 35,000 child car seats and restraints in Ireland. Worryingly, 79% of seats required a major adjustment, of which 3% were deemed not fit for purpose and condemned, meaning they could have caused injury or even death in the event of a collision.

The Check it Fits service is quick, it’s easy, it’s free. On the day our experts will advise on how to fix any problem, demonstrate how to fit the restraint correctly and answer any queries participants might have. Our experts aim to put parent’s, grandparent’s and guardian’s minds at ease that their child’s car seat is safely and securely fitted in their car.

We will be visiting the following locations in Limerick: SuperValu Castletroy, on Tuesday 21st January 2020 from 10.00am until 5.30pm
