Congratulations to the boys and girls from our two parish primary schools who received their first Holy Communion on May 20, and to their parents and teachers who helped to make it a great occasion.
In union with the people of the Archdiocese of Dublin, we pray for the people of Manchester:
God of compassion, you are at the side of all who undergo the cruelty of human violence. We entrust to you the victims of the terror attack in Manchester and their families. Deeply disturbed by the incomprehensible sufferings of the innocent across the world, we believe that the words of Jesus, Your Son, words of love, mercy and hope, will never pass away. So we implore you: send consolation and healing, grant us your peace, may your kingdom come. Through Christ, Our Lord, Amen.
Important Notice: due to essential repair work in our parish church, it will not be possible to have Eucharistic Adoration on Tuesdays for the coming weeks.
Our music director, Faye Potts, is inviting new members, men and women, all ages, to join our Adult Choir for the 12 noon Mass each Sunday. She says no experience is needed. The choir rehearses at 11 a.m. each Sunday in our Parish Centre. If you like to sing, don’t miss this opportunity!

Child Protection: All members of our parish groups who are in contact with children or vulnerable adults have completed the Garda vetting procedure. The latest document from the Archdiocese is the Code-of-Conduct for parish staff and volunteers. You can also download from here the Application Form for Volunteers with any of our parish groups. We observe the Archdiocese of Dublin Guidelines on Use of Information Technology when working with children and young people. See also our parish Child Protection Policy, Anti Bullying Policy, Guidelines for an Away Trip and Code of Behaviour.
Dedicated to Mary, Mother of Jesus, our parish is called the Parish of the Assumption. We believe that, upon her death, Mary was taken straight to the presence of God. We call this ‘the Assumption’ of Mary to heaven. We trust that she protects and cares for us and brings our prayers to God. More…
