We at Church Services TV work very closely with Catholicireland.net. Indeed we share a kitchen. kettle and daily chats with them:). So Today’s blog is about what an important support they are to the Irish Catholic community.
Catholicireland.net is owned by Church Support Ltd, a registered charity in Ireland. Charity number CHY17720. www.churchsupportgroup.com
It is set up to promote and support the work of the Catholic Church in Ireland and abroad on the World Wide Web. Its aim is to ensure that the positive initiatives being taken by members of the Catholic Church in Ireland have a dynamic and attractive forum on the web and other modern media. Its goal is apostolic, to support people in the living of their Catholic faith, to reach out to those who may have drifted away and to be a source of information and inspiration for those who do not believe and are searching.
The idea is to establish Catholicireland.net as the internet Portal website, gathering all the very best of Irish Catholic activity and international links. The Catholicireland.net team will generate resources to support people at each milestone of their Catholic life.
The Patron of this organisation is Cardinal Seán Brady, Primate of all Ireland.
Catholicireland.net have a number of services that we find especially useful.

The next Sunday readings are also available in advance. This is very useful for Church readers also. For those interested there are also reflections and homily notes available http://www.catholicireland.net/homilies
