Parish Finances

 

Many thanks to the Pastoral Council and Finance Committee who presented an update on the Parish Finances last week-end.  As reported the parish finances are in a difficult state.  Grateful thanks to all who responded by filling out standing order forms (copies available at the back of the Church) or by donating through the envelopes. Your support is much appreciated and vital in keeping our Parish going.

HOLY YEAR OF MERCY

To begin the Holy Year of Mercy, announced recently by Pope Francis, we will hold an all-night vigil with Mass, prayer, confessions and Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. The vigil will begin at 10pm on Monday 7th December and end with 10am Mass for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception on Tuesday 8th December. 



 

BAPTISM

 

The next Baptism meeting will take place in the Church on Wednesday 9th December at 7.30pm



 

Altar List of the Dead

 

The Altar list of the Dead is a wonderful way to remember our loved ones who have died.

Mass will be offered on the first Friday of every month for the happy repose of their souls. November lists and envelopes are available at the back of the church.

FAMILY MASS

 

We are delighted to say that there is a Family Mass here at 10.30am each Sunday.

 We would encourage families, especially those with young children to come along to this Mass as often as possible as it is very child focused.   



 

CHILD PROTECTION

 

Parish volunteers who are engaged in activities that include children must be Garda vetted.  If you haven’t yet completed the necessary form please do so as soon as possible and return it to Fr. Eamonn.

 

Other volunteers within the parish are welcome to seek Garda vetting.  Forms are available from the Parish Office or from www.dublindiocese.ie/content/garda-vetting-policy



 

FAMILY ROOM

 

For the benefit of all families who use the Family Room during Mass, parents are reminded to supervise their children and to please tidy up the toys afterwards.



 

BRASS MEMORIAL PLATES

Many people have asked if they could remember their deceased loved ones by placing a Brass Plate on a Church bench.

We are now in a position to provide this service. The cost per dedicated Plate will be €250. This includes the cost of a high quality Brass Plate and a donation to the Church. All enquiries to the Parish Office.
