Our celebration of the Easter message continues, and beautiful lilies now adorn the altar.
Eucharistic Adoration continues each Tuesday from 10:30am until 10pm.
Apologies if you find our webcam is turned off at times, due to building work. We hope to have it back full time shortly.

Parish Conversations. In preparation for the World Meeting of Families 2018, the last of our parish conversations takes place on Tuesday, April 24 at 8pm at the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, Woodview House, Mount Merrion Avenue. All are welcome to attend. The theme of this conversation is “A Gospel of Hope for Our Families.”
How Great Thou Art. Again this weekend, after all Masses, tickets will be on sale for a wonderful evening of spiritual song in our church, which will take place on Thursday, May 17, at 8pm. “How Great Thou Art” will feature Red Hurley and will be supported by the well-known Habemus Choir. As our space is limited, we expect that this fund-raising event for our Parish Pastoral Centre will sell out quickly. Tickets, at €30, will be sold strictly on a first-come basis this weekend. Payment by cash or cheques only, as we have no facilities for accepting cards. Tickets are also available during the week at Winnie’s Craft Cafe, Woodbine Park.
Job Advertisement. We are looking for a part-time Finance Officer to join the parish team to manage the Finance function. For details of the job description, and how to apply for the job, click here. The closing date is April 28 at 5:30pm.
Besides our Easter joy, our builders are making great progress on our Parish Pastoral Centre development. The Chairperson of our Parish Pastoral Council, Sheila O’Malley, will speak at all Masses this weekend to bring us up to date on progress with the development of our Parish Pastoral Centre.
The 6th class girls of Our Lady of Mercy Primary School, Booterstown, ran a Coffee Morning during Seachtain na Gaeilge, and raised €350 for our Parish Pastoral Centre Building Fund. They are pictured here presenting the cheque to Fr Gerry and Sheila O’Malley, Chair of the Parish Pastoral Council. Well done to all the girls! And thank you!
