Sacraments Not Conveyor Belts

The Archdiocese of Dublin is seeking the views of the faithful on how to improve the preparation and celebration of sacraments, especially Holy Communion and Confirmation. Sacraments are not conveyor belts. They are not just social occasions, although they are social, but “they are fundamentally moments of faith”.

Hospital Visitation

If you know of anyone who is sick in hospital or at home and would like a visit, please don’t hesitate to call one of the priests of the parish or the parish office.

Preparation of Sunday Mass Readings

Do you wish that you understood more of the background to the Sunday Mass Readings?

Come along to Kilian House Family Centre after Mass any Tuesday 10.40 – 12.00 p.m.

Join in reading the Scripture passages chosen for the next Sunday’s Mass, teasing out their meaning and checking on their relevance for you in to-day’s world.

All are welcome.
