Welcome to the Rahan Parish Website. Click for a brief description of the Parish
3rd Sunday of Advent 17th December 2017

Last week we were introduced to John the Baptist as part of our Advent journey. We hear his story again today, and in
this account, from the fourth gospel, we hear John?s voice and his testimony about Jesus. Light and darkness is a key
theme of the fourth gospel and its opening verses proclaims that this light has always shone in the dark; the darkness
cannot overpower it. The evangelist goes on to tell us that John the Baptist?s mission is that he has been sent by God to
„speak for the light?. John is a light bearer, he is not the light, but he points to the light. He is a witness to the light of
God in our world, a light that cannot be put out

Lynally Mass and Gathering Oct. 2014

Since 2007 a small number of parishioner, mainly from Lynally gathers for Mass or Rosary at the ruins of the old monastic church in and around the end of Sept. (Sept 26th is thought to be the Feastday of St Colman). Bad weather often kept people away but this year we were blessed with one of the loveliest evenings. It was sheer mystical and the setting sun shone across the 40/50 people who turned up to honour those who were buried in this cemetery. Those present were in no hurry to go home but lingered and chatted to one another for a long time after Mass. Once again thanks to Mattie Mooney and the Mooney Family for facilitating us each year for this event. But it is disappointing that the Council is no longer cutting the grass in this graveyard and if OPW does not act soon the walls of the old Monastery will come toppling down with the weight of ivy. And what a shame that would be. Can anyone champion the cause of LYNALLY. Please.
