CHANGE OF MASS TIME CARMELITE CONVENT

From the beginning of 2019 the morning Mass in the convent will be at 8:30 a.m.  Monday to Friday. The request for the change of time has come from the nuns themselves and has nothing to do with parish clergy. They very much regret the inconvenience this may cause to those who attend the 7:30 a.m. Mass.

HOLY FAMILY SITE

The Holy Family Site has been vacant since the church closed in 2013. The Parish Pastoral Council engaged with the parish community to ascertain what were the possibilities for the site.
A Holy Family Site Committee was formed which has been working hard on behalf of the Parish to deal with the use of the site. In collaboration with Fingal County Council the site was zoned CI – Community Infrastructure which provides for and protects civic, religious, community, education, healthcare and social infrastructure.
We have been advised to dispose of the site and in doing so it becomes an asset to the parish that will help facilitate major repairs to the church roof and other works that may arise in the future.
In consultation with the Holy Family Site Committee the parish has engaged CBRE as its agent for the marketing and sale of the site under CI zoning. Click here to access the advertisement on the CBRE website.
We will keep you informed of any further progress.

BIBLE STUDY COURSE

A 5 week course continues in St. Anne’s Parish Centre on Tuesday nights at 8:00 p.m.

GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION

A new European Data Protection Law is being introduced on May 25th 2018. This new law applies to any organisation, including our Parish, that manages and processes people’s personal information. We are now working on ways of ensuring that what we do with your information is compliant with this new law. It is a work in progress and over the next few months we will keep you informed through the Parish Website and in the Newsletter as policies are put in place. If you have any questions about this please contact the Parish Office at 845 1561.

VOCATIONS TO THE PRIESTHOOD

Have you ever wondered if you are being called to be a Diocesan Priest? If you have ever considered a vocation to the priesthood, then you are not on your own. God is constantly calling people to ministry in the Church, but often His call gets drowned out by the care and busyness of life. If you are contemplating a vocation to priesthood, contact: Fr. Willie Purcell. National Vocations Coordinator E-mail: nationalvocations@gmail.com Phone/Text: + 353 (0) 056 7770261 Website:click here
