PARISH NOTICES

 

Fr Gerry during homily at the Fr John Sullivan Mass - October 2016

Dear friends,

Welcome back.  We look forward to re-commencing public worship at Gardiner Street.  At last the church will open its doors to all.  Thank you for donating generously during the Sacred Heart Novena.  Under difficult circumstances it was a great success. Thank you also to all our volunteers and new volunteers who are making it possible to run our various activities.  Thanks especially to the parish team who have been great over the last few months.

Fr. Gerry Clarke SJ

Parish Priest

SPIRITUAL COMMUNION & CONFESSION

In its recent documents, the Holy See has drawn attention to two strong traditions of the Catholic Church.  The first regards spiritual communion and this should be counselled where there is a danger in distributing communion.  The second is the tradition that in the event of difficulty in accessing Confession that making an act of perfect contrition with the desire to receive the sacrament is sufficient for the forgiveness of all sins even mortal sins.

Pray with Pope Francis

POPE’S PRAYER INTENTION FOR JULY: that families be loved, respected, guided

In his prayer intention for the month of July 2020, Pope Francis asks everyone to pray that today’s families may be accompanied with love, respect and guidance.

The full text of his intention is below:

The family ought to be protected.

It faces many dangers: the fast pace of life, stress…

Sometimes, parents forget to play with their children.

The Church needs to encourage families and stay at their side, helping them to discover ways that allow them to overcome all of these difficulties.

Let us pray that today’s families may be accompanied with love, respect and guidance, and especially, that they may be protected by the State.
