    The approaching season of Lent is described as a joyful season. Despite the difficulties and restrictions we face, Lent gives us an opportunity to rediscover who we are and the life-giving message of the Good News. Unfortunately this year we are unable to mark Ash Wednesday in the traditional way. It is in solidarity with one another and with all our neighbours that we must continue to strictly adhere to social distancing, hand sanitising and the wearing of face coverings. The threat of Covid-19 remains stubbornly present in our communities, this year Ashes should not be distributed in the traditional

  • Preparing children for Sacraments in 2021
    Please find below the link to a recorded message by Archbishop Dermot Farrell to the parents of children due to receive the sacraments of First Holy Communion and Confirmation this year. It expresses to them and to parish communities the broad approach which is being taken: there is no pressure to celebrate the sacraments by any given deadline; we should use this time of uncertainty to support families to nurture their children as they journey towards the sacraments whenever they can be safely celebrated; and we are creating supports and resources for parishes to draw on in their accompaniment of

    Letter to all Dublin parishes on 9th February 2021 These continue to be strange days for us all. The pandemic continues to dominate the news cycles and, in fact, large parts of our lives. We are all doing what we can to contain its spread. I thank you, most sincerely, for all that you have done in the parishes to continue to journey with people through a variety of means – for, now, the best part of this past year.

  • Sunday Mass Times
    From this coming Sunday 13th December the first mass will start at 10:15am and not at 10:30am as it used to be. This is due to new Diocesan guidelines that require a 1 hour time interval between the end of one Mass and the beginning of the next to allow for sanitising and ventilation. The other new requirement is that mass lasts no more than an hour including entry and exit times for parishioners so we will open the doors for the Church 15 minutes in advance of mass starting. Doors open at 10am for the 10:15am mass which should be

    Today is the start of the Advent season where we will prepare ourselves to celebrate Christmas. The first candle in the Advent Wreath, which is purple, symbolizes hope.

Behind each door there will be content aimed at assisting people to pray and to reflect on how best we can keep
