Donnybrook Parish

Donnybrook ChurchOn 26th August 1866 Cardinal Cullen, Archbishop of Dublin,celebrated the opening of the new Church of the Sacred Heart for the Parish of Donnybrook with a High Mass.

We are now one hundred and fifty years since that momentous event in the history of the Church and plans are well advanced for a weekend of celebrations to commemorate that day.

Join the Parish Community in coming together to celebrate our beautiful church and the history of Christian presence in Donnybrook.

Prayers for niceWe pray in heartfelt solidarity with the people of Nice. 
We pray for those who died, those who are injured, the traumatised and all their families.

We pray that though we are deeply disconcerted by such acts of merciless violence – no matter how near or how distant from us – we may not give in to discouragement, but fix our hearts on always doing what is right and just. 

We pray for civic authorities everywhere, especially those involved in peace-keeping. 
May we work together with all women and men of good will to protect the dignity of every human being.

orlando nightclub shootingPeople all around the world are shocked with the news of the terrible loss of life at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando.

I have asked  that in the Prayers of the Faithful at all Masses in the Archdiocese of Dublin on the coming weekend that those who died or who remain injured and all those who mourn and grieve be remembered.    Books of condolence are open at the Pro-Cathedral in Dublin for those who wish to express their grief and outrage.
