St. Laurence O’ Toole Church , Kilteel has been greatly enhanced by the recently completed work on paths and entrance. It is now easily accessible  for the disabled.   A most useful  gathering spot for people attending ceremonies has been provided as well as a disabled parking area.  Congratulations to designer Marty Boran and  to Martin Hyland for doing the magnificent work which has transformed the area.

Today is the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord ( moved from last Thursday ).  It is also World Communications Day. Pope Francis  in a statement for the day talks about  Fake News. This has to do with false information based on non-existent or distorted data meant to deceive and manipulate the reader. There is no such thing as harmless disinformation ; on the contrary ,  trusting in falsehood can have dire consequences.  We  believe that “The truth will make you free. ” ( Jn 8:32 )
