Youth GroupAs young people in our parish we would like to start something new. We hope to create a group of young parishioners where everybody can feel free to bring their own needs and experiences, a group where we can encourage each other as young Christians, grow together in our faith and see God’s purposes for our lives. We want to build all this together ... so as a first step we want all young adults who come to Donnybrook church for Mass to get in touch with your thoughts and ideas and also with your contact details so we can tell you about new events.

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.
