Religion Classes for 2024/25

As one school year comes to an end, we are all beginning to prepare for all that concerns next year already. A number of factors are now required to ensure the best Religious Education provision for your child/ren and are as follows:

  • All children will participate in Religious Education classes from First Class to Sixth class if the
    intention is to present them for the Sacraments of First Holy Communion and Confirmation.
  • All weekly one-hour classes will be provided face to face in a location organised by the parishes,
    which will be Divine Mercy Senior School.
  • It will be necessary that two parents, who will be vetted for the Archdiocese, be present at the class
    location for the duration of class times (two parents for the location, not per class level). If more
    than two parents volunteer, a roster could be organised.
  • Parents will make online payment for the classes and the Grow in Love text book in advance of
    classes commencing. The parish will pay the appointed teachers and pay rent for facilities from
    payments received from parents.

Choice of day and venue for classes:

The Religious Education classes in our parish will take place in Divine Mercy Senior School on Thursday afternoons at 4pm starting on 19 September 2024.
Alternatively classes will also be available in Scoil Áine in Lucan, beside St Patrick’s Church, on Wednesdays. Registration for Scoil Áine will commence via the parish website for St Mary’s Parish and will open shortly also.

Pilgrim Statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary

When Mother Mary was in need she was told there was no room at the inn. Can you make a place for her?

We are looking for families to welcome the Pilgrim Statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary into their homes for one week and to pray the Holy Rosary at the statue each day. At the end of the week the statue will continue its pilgrimage to the next family. The statue will be handed into the care of the volunteer families at Sunday mass.

If your family would like to host Mother Mary for a week please get in touch with the parish office by phone to 01 457 2900 or email You can also contact Deacon Norvil on (085) 7157887 or email or contact Deacon Joe.

We can only imagine how happy Mother Mary will be to get your invitation to stay in your home and pray with your family.

Daily Readings Readings

Under our Welcome menu you will find links for the Daily Mass Reading which updates every day as well as Sunday Mass Reading for the following Sunday’s mass. It is a great way to be able to read along during mass if you so wish or take time to reflect on the passages during the week and see what message they have for you. One quick note is that if it is a Sunday and you want to see the Gospel for today then click on the Daily Mass Reading link as the Sunday listing will be for the following week.
