By way of marking the occasion, a mass will be celebrated at 11 am in St Mary’s on Sunday 3rd March for her family, friends, and parishioners. Refreshments/ light lunch and a presentation will take place directly after mass in the Summer Hill hotel. All are welcome.

MARGARET YOU WILL BE SO MISSED

 

 

“LOVE LIFE LIVE LENT” a five-week course for Lent in collaboration with our friends from St Patricks Powerscourt

Love Life Live Lent is a different way of approaching Lent, one which focuses on taking up positive actions for the good of all. Often Lent has been about giving up things – traditionally some sorts of food, but these days more likely chocolate or alcohol. We give up things with a view to focus more closely on our relationship with God.

While there are elements of ‘giving up’ in the daily actions  the focus of the actions is on generosity and being ‘life-giving’.

 

Week 3:6th March. 11am.  St Mary’s Feeling Good or Washing Feet? ‘What’s in it for me?’

Week 4:13th March. 11 am St Patricks Feeding 5000  What’s in it for them?’

Week 5: 20th March.11am St Mary’s  Man Born Blind ‘Taking Action’ Making a difference

SYNOD 2024

A message from Fr Kieran McDermott

My sisters and brothers in Christ,

A great deal has been happening over the past year as the Church grows in Synodality and as we try to discern together what God is asking of us at this time. Conversations have been ongoing at national and international levels. We hope you have been following these events; via our communications, such as the newsletters in October 2023 (see https://dublindiocese.ie/synod2023/), or via other means.

Céad míle fáilte

Welcome to our Parish website! Whether you’re just visiting us for a brief time, looking for a new parish home, are returning to the practice of your Catholic faith or are interested in finding out more about the Catholic Church, we’re happy to have you here. We want to make our parish website an interesting and worthwhile location for both parishioners and visitors to keep up to date with what’s happening in our parish. We hope that all parishioners will see it as a useful resource. We welcome your feedback!  In the meantime, please look through the resources we’ve made available on these pages.

In our Parish we are fortunate to be living in very beautiful surroundings and even more blessed to have a good community spirit. Our four Church communities work closely with each other and with our Church of Ireland sisters and brothers and celebrate as much as possible in our common liturgies, where we come to meet and afterwards to talk with each other. This doesn’t happen in many places and it is a real sign of true community – a way of life in which we invite you to take part.
