Easter Day of the Lord’s resurrection
                 Sunday  20th April 2014    

During this Easter Season
may you experience the
                                  Peace of the Risen Christ.          

Lord, the resurrection of Your Son
has given us new life and renewed hope.
Help us to live as new people
in pursuit of the Christian ideal.
                   Grant us wisdom to know                        
what we must do,
the will to want to do it,
the courage to undertake it,
the perseverance to continue to do it,
and the strength to complete it.

THE DEEP END • He is Risen!
RTÉ recently showed a documentary called ‘Somebody to Love’, which explored the romantic lives of people with physical or intellectual disabilities. The honest style of the programme struck a chord with many viewers, and Twitter was immediately awash with positive comments – ‘inspiring without being patronising’; ‘in depth and thought provoking’; ‘a beautiful, positive documentary’ just some of the compliments. It was heartening to see such praise for a well-made programme, and even more so to hear the stories of the people who took part and the obstacles they had overcome in their search for love.
Easter is a time to celebrate life and love. We are Easter people, but what does this mean? We use the word ‘Alleluia’ (Praise the Lord) a lot at Easter, and the Exsultet or Easter Proclamation tells us to rejoice! Exult! All the things we associate with Easter – chicks, bunnies, lambs, flowers – are signs of spring and new beginnings. Easter brings new life and hope. Are we positive about life, recognising the dignity of every person? Are our parishes and communities places of welcome, joy and love?
‘He is risen! And because He is risen, we too shall rise... The anticipation of eternal life is the source and reason for our hope. If cultivated and protected, it illuminates our lives as persons and communities.’ Pope Francis

Home Share is an initiative that provides short breaks for children and adults who attend COPE Foundation. Home Sharers are recruited from the community and the respite care/short break is provided in the sharer’s home. These short breaks can be for a couple of hours, overnights, week-ends or even longer.
Many families take great joy in caring for their loved ones, however providing this care on an ongoing basis can be extremely tiring and stressful. Having a short break from this care giving can be of huge benefit to the care giver, their family and the person being cared for.
Home sharers can be working, retired, or unemployed with or without children, single or with a partner.
Training, support and an allowance will be provided to Home Sharers.
If you would like more information or if you are interested in becoming a Home Sharer please ring Philip Grant on 021 4643238 or e-mail grantp@cope-foundation.ie
