SVP Collectors
SVP Mohill relies on the weekly church collections for the majority of its funds. Without this source of income it would be impossible to continue our work. Due to the retirements we do not have enough collectors to cover the Saturday evening Mass collection on a continual basis, therefore we are looking for some new volunteers. Volunteers may wish to become full members of SVP or if they prefer they may just commit to helping out with the weekly collection. For a ten minute commitment weekly you can make a huge difference to disadvantaged people in our community. For info call Mike Burke on 086 – 2568357 or talk to any of our collectors.

Seeing your life through the Lens of the Gospel
1. There are three figures in the story of the Prodigal Son. The father is a symbol of an unconditional love. Perhaps you can recall someone showing love to you in a way that showed great forgiveness and acceptance. Have there been times when you have also loved in this way?
2. You may be able to identify with the younger son at different stages of his journey. Be sure to follow it to the point where it becomes a good news story for you – when you ‘came to yourself.’ Where and when have you experienced a homecoming after a time of exile and alienation. 3. Do not neglect the older son. In contrast to his father he was very judgemental and resentful towards his younger brother. Perhaps you have experienced these attitudes in others towards you, or in yourself towards others. What were those experiences like for you? What did they teach you?
