St Canice Feast Day

May all in our parish of St Canice know that they belong
And experience the support of true Christian community;
And all, whatever their situation, feel included
And appreciated for who they are.
May the Eucharist we celebrate together
Be the source and the summit of our Christian lives,
Nourishing us on our spiritual path,
Healing us in our struggles,
Challenging us in our daily living
And a real celebration of Christ living among us.

Spirit of God, inflame our hearts;
May our faith be expressed in action,
May our energy be poured
Into making your kingdom come,
Your hope of a people alive with the joy of your love.

The stained-glass window behind the main altar at St Canice’s shows St Canice praying while St Columba and the monks are being tossed on stormy seas. It even depicts the one lost shoe of St Canice that we hear about in the story. It incorporates so beautifully the motif of the curragh and the waves that threatened it. They daily remind us of the power of Canice’s prayer.
