Fr John Sullivan

Blessed John Sullivan Monthly Mass will take place ONLY online on Saturday 19th September 2020

Following an urgent notice from Archbishop Diarmuid Martin  concerning the Pastoral situation in County Dublin under changed Coronavirus norms, it is likely that places of worship will remain closed from midnight tonight (18th September 2020) except for private prayer, weddings and funerals. Therefore we judge it best to cancel the September monthly public Mass for Blessed John Sullivan and broadcast it online ONLY at www.gardinerstparish.ie. A recording of the Mass will be also available.

There will be no public Masses until further notice

Weekday and Sunday Masses will be celebrated behind closed doors at 11:00 and can be viewed online at www.gardinerstparish.ie. This Sunday (20th September) we will broadcast three masses online (9.15 and 11.00 along with Mass in Polish at 12.30).

The Gospel Choir Mass at 7.30 pm can be viewed on facebook.com/TheGSGC

The Parish Office will remain open from 9:30 to 5:00 Monday to Friday and 10:00 to 1:00 on weekends.

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

A confession of crimes against humanity

 “Who could have believed that the horrors of war could become a part of our lives? Surrounded with horrors, we got used to them and went on living like that. Among those horrors, things happened that were done by people who knew each other, people who, until yesterday, had lived almost as family members together. In Bosnia, a neighbour means more than a relative. In Bosnia, having coffee with your neighbour is a ritual, and this is what we trampled on and forgot. We lost ourselves in hatred and brutality. And in this vortex of terrible misfortune and horror, the horror of Srebrenica happened...

Pray with Pope Francis


Pope’s prayer intention for September: Respect for the planet’s resources

We are squeezing out the planet’s goods. Squeezing them out, as if the earth were an orange.

Countries and businesses from the global north have enriched themselves by exploiting the natural resources of the south, creating an “ecological debt.” Who is going to pay this debt?

In addition, this “ecological debt” is increased when multinationals do abroad what they would never be allowed to do in their own countries. It’s outrageous.

Today, not tomorrow; today, we have to take care of Creation responsibly.

Let us pray that the planet’s resources will not be plundered, but shared in a just and respectful manner.

No to plundering; yes to sharing.
