Holy Hour takes place every Wednesday and Friday from 3pm to 4pm in the Sacred Heart Church, Glounthaune.

This Sunday 24th October is Mission Sunday. Its theme this year We Cannot Remain Silent – We cannot but speak about what we have seen and heard (Acts 4:20) is twofold. It is a message of hope – Jesus Christ is risen and we cannot keep his love, compassion, and mercy to ourselves. It also challenges us to stand up and speak out on behalf of those who are weaker. All too often, the voices that need to be heard are not the loudest. For them, we cannot remain silent.

Dear Father and all parishioners of the Parish,

We would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation of decision to kindly grant us the permission to visit Your parish. We heartily thank Lord for Your and Your parishioners’ hospitality and precious help during the visit of our sisters. We do appreciate your all your efforts, concern, assistance and kindheartedness greatly. 

Our sisters are incredibly grateful for the donation collected in your parish which will allow us to continue our outreach services and programs for orphanage children with psychophysical deficiencies, for people who were led astray by the rough and tumble of life (the homeless, drug and alcohol addicts, ex-prisoners and the less able) including food, shelter and clothing distribution.

Let us assure that You are always welcome here at St. Elisabeth Convent.

With deep gratitude and love in Christ,

 Sister Olga and sisters of St Elisabeth Convent
