Climate Justice Candle
 On Sat Feb 29th , Lacken Church hosted the Climate Justice Candle where members of the Tidy Village group did the readings and prayers for Care of the Earth. Earlier in the week the Tidy Village group did a big clean up of the church grounds in preparation for this mass.  
The Climate Justice Candle - "Shine a light on Climate Justice" is a project of Eco Congregation Ireland. This candle visits parishes all around the country where parishes commit to find ways of addressing the challenges of Climate change. You can view the work of Eco Congregation on their website - www.ecocongregationireland.com

The Blessing of the Stock
 The Blessing of the Stock Deacon Gerry Malone has in recent months revived a tradition that was very much part of rural life:- The Blessing of The Stock and the Land.
Last Autumn he blessed the farms and cattle in Lacken and in the past week the townlands in the Valleymount parish. With these uncertain times, this blessing is much valued and appreciated by our farming community. It also afforded Deacon Gerry the opportunity to connect with his parishioners on a personal level.
Let us pray for all who make a living from the land, That God may  bless our labours and through them, draw us closer to himself. Amen"
