Now that the emergency phase of the pandemic has been officially declared over, this is an appropriate time to remind ourselves of the centrality of coming together as a Christian community to celebrate Sunday, the Lord’s Day. Though we are many we are all one body in Christ (see 1 Corinthians 10:16-17).
As we pray for a new beginning for the Church in the Archdiocese, and encourage renewed and active participation of all parishioners, please continue to support your priests in all the ordinary ways, and through this Summer Dues collection. People’s generosity towards their priests is indispensable; our gratitude can never be fully expressed. Envelopes will be available from the doors of the Church shortly.
Applications are now open for the next intake of participants for Pathways. The programme, run by the Dublin Archdiocese, begins this year in DCU St. Patrick’s Campus, Upper Drumcondra Rd., Dublin 9 on Thursday 28th September 2023 (7.00 p.m. – 9.30 p.m.). Places are limited so early application is advised.
Pathways is a two-year, one evening-a-week course for adults of all ages who wish to explore their faith. It runs from late September to May each year. There are no exams and no written work. The only requirement is an openness to listening to others and to participate. You can just come along and enjoy! The cost is €400 for the coming year which may be paid in instalments. Some sponsorship may be available for those of limited means. Places are limited. For more information please visit your webpage: www.missionministry.ie or contact: Eileen Houlahan, CHF, PhD, Director, Pathways Programme. Phone : 01 8087594 Email: email@example.com
You are warmly invited to join every parish in the diocese in a Novena to the Holy Spirit – a period of prayer, reflection and planning for the renewal of the Church in the Archdiocese of Dublin. The Novena will take place in the nine days from 21st -29th May beginning on the Feast of the Ascension of the Lord, through Pentecost and continuing to the Feast of Mary, Mother of the Church.
