As the new school year begins and we all return to our normal routines I would like to take this opportunity to welcome everyone as we immerse ourselves in the busyness of life this time of year.
I would also like to bring to your attention a number of things.
Firstly, Fr Aaron Vinduska has been appointed as a Parish Chaplain to Sandyford Parish. This is great news as Fr Aaron is an excellent young Priest and I am delighted to have him involved in the Parish. In addition, following his recent retirement as Parish Priest, Mons. Dermot Lane has been appointed Parish Chaplain to Balally, which will be a wonderful help to the Parish.
A Parish Chaplain is a Diocesan appointment where a Priest is asked to assist a Parish by celebrating Mass on Sundays and where possible help out with the Sacramental life of the Parish.
Secondly, The Parish Pastoral Centre is now in the closing stages of completion and we hope to be able to open the doors by the 1st November this year!! I think and hope many of you will be both surprised and delighted
with the new build and how it will help us to promote parish life as a Christian community.
Thank you all for your ongoing support as a parish we continue to grow stronger by working together. Fr Andrew.
