We have great news from Leopardstown Race Course where two lads from Moyross are doing extremely well. Pat Keogh writes: “They are two great guys and are very hard workers. They are very popular with all the staff here and would be welcome back any time.” One of them has been given an opportunity to work for Fitzers at Leopardstown; Fitzers are “delighted” with him so he may well be set up for a career in catering in the future.
There will be no Sunday evening Mass during July and August.
The Adult Choir, the Gospel choir and the Taizé Group will take a well deserved break during July and August.
There will be a vigil Mass for St. Patrick’s Day on Thursday at 7.30 pm. Mass will be celebrated at 8.30, 10 and Fr. Paddy will celebrate Mass in Irish at 11.15am on St. Patrick’s Day – our national holiday.
CHURCH bells will ring on Sunday 19th March between 11.00 and 12 noon to mark the arrival of Syrian refugees to Ballaghadereen. Our church bell will ring from 11.00 am until 11.15 on that Sunday morning.
Our Response to Migration
The Lenten series this year for the parish of the Assumption and St. Patrick’s will deal with Migration and consider what our response should be from a biblical perspective. The brown envelope collection will be donated towards providing accommodation for refugees. Please make a note of the dates for your diary – 7, 14, 21 and 28 March. All are welcome to attend.
