Welcome to Booterstown parish

On Saturday at our Vigil Mass at 6pm, we will welcome the Lassus Singers and Piccolo Lasso, with conductor Ite O’Donovan and organist Celine Kelly. They will sing Mozart’s Missa Brevis and Communion Motets Ave Verum by Mozart, and Schubert’s Ave Maria.

Our Net Ministries team, just one week after their arrival in Booterstown, have been busy getting to know everyone. Pictured here (left to right: Sam, Tammie, Joseph, Emily and Ruby) with Monsignor Seamus Conway, our Pastor Emeritus, and Sister Teresa from the Mercy Community, who has a lifetime of experience working with young people. Their first formal activity was on Thursday evening, October 11, when they invited Transition Year and 6th year students to meet in their home. Then on Friday, October 12, they joined 1st, 2nd and 3rd year secondary students at Booterstown Community Centre. On behalf of the team, Ruby writes to our young folk, “This will be a chance for you to hangout, play games, eat snacks and grow in your faith!” If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the team at booterstownteam@netministries.ie.

Family Mass: In the spirit of the World Meeting of Families, we are inviting families to volunteer to take part in the liturgy of the 10:30am Mass on the following Sundays: November 25, December 2, February 3, April 7, and May 12. Families can mean any combination of parents, children, grandparents, grandchildren, and aunts/uncles etc. Family members would act as Ministers of the Word, reading the Prayer of the Faithful or as Gift bearers at the Offertory, for example. You might wish to mark a special occasion such as a birthday, a wedding anniversary or the anniversary of a deceased family member. If you are interested, please contact Therese in the Parish Office to make a booking. You will get all the help and guidance that you need in relation to the preparation. A member of the Liturgy team or the Family Mass group will meet you beforehand to plan with you.

Children’s Choir: If your child would like to join the Children’s Choir, please approach Faye or Julia after Mass and ask them for a Parental Consent Form.

We welcome new volunteers to all our active parish groups. You can click HERE to see all the groups. Or, if you have an idea for a new group, let us know. You can download here the Application Form for Volunteers with any of our parish groups. As required for all volunteering activities, Garda Vetting and attendance at an Information Session is essential.

Child Safeguarding: All members of our parish groups who are in contact with children or vulnerable adults have completed the Garda vetting procedure. Click here for Parent Consent Form for youth activities: Youth Application form. The latest document from the Archdiocese is the Code-of-Conduct for parish staff and volunteers. 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, Code of Behaviour, Complaints Procedure for Young People and Parents, and Youth Application and Parental Consent Form.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR): A new European Data Protection law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), was introduced on May 25, 2018. We are now working on ways of ensuring that what we do with your information is compliant with this new law. It is a work in progress, and over the next few months, we will keep you informed through the parish website and in the newsletter as policies are put in place. If you have any questions about this please do not hesitate to contact the Parish Office.
