Act Of Spiritual
Communion
My Jesus, I believe that you
are in the Blessed Sacrament.
I love You above all things and
I long for You in my soul.
Since I cannot now receive
You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually
into my heart.

As though You have already come,
I embrace You and unite myself
entirely to You;

Never permit me to be
separated from You.

Amen.

Dear Parishioners,

I hope you are all keeping well as our young people return to School and please God it will work out well for all.

I have some news, which is bitter-sweet. The Archbishop has appointed me Parish Priest of Rathmines and I will take up my duties in early October.   I am looking forward to a new chapter and no doubt new challenges, but as I am saddened to move on, I am also very grateful for the last nine years for the privilege of serving and getting to know the people of Sandyford.

Fr John Delany has been appointed Moderator of Sandyford &  Balally, and he will take up his duties in early October.  I would like to welcome Fr John and wish him every success in his ministry here, which I hope he will find as fulfilling as I did. Regrettably, in these uncertain times, it is not possible for us to come together and celebrate in the way we would like. We hope to have some small celebrations towards the end of September, further details of this will be announced later. Meanwhile I keep you all in my prayers especially during this time of transition and wish Fr John and Fr Paul every blessing as they journey with you in the years ahead.
Fr Andrew
