Building Hope Update & Changes in Parish

Building Hope Archdiocese of Dublin

Archbishop Farrell has invited each parish to reflect on the pastoral situation in which we find ourselves. What parish partnerships will work best in our locality?

Our world has changed: we cannot return to the past. God is bringing forth something new. It is an exciting time for Building Hope, which is what we call the process. As a result of this, Fr Gerry Kane P.P. will be moving to the Parishes of Newtownpark Avenue and Foxrock as Parish Priest and Monsignor Ciaran O’Carroll will replace Fr Gerry and continue on as Parish Priest in Donnybrook. These appointments are to take effect in early July.

We will come together, led by the Pastoral Council and the Finance Committee to discuss the gifts and talents we have, and also our needs, going forward. Our challenge – and it is ours – rather than simply reacting to events, is to shape the future. This is the work of God’s Spirit among us.

As part of this process, there will be a meeting this Sunday 29th May, at 9.45 am in the
McAuley Suite. Everyone is encouraged to come and discuss the future of our Parish.
