WEEK OF PRAYER TO THE HOLY SPIRIT

You are warmly invited to join together in a Week of Prayer to the Holy Spirit for the renewal of the Church in Dublin from May 29 to June 6 – Ascension Sunday through Pentecost to the Feast of Mary, Mother of the Church.

Your Week of Prayer resource booklet is attached.          weekofprayer1

The period covers many interesting feasts and scripture quotations. There is a four-line prayer each day which uses the Building Hope Prayer as its base with relevant additions. There is also a mixture of Introductions to the Liturgy, Reflections after the Gospel and a Litany that you might find useful.

ECUMENICAL BIBLE WEEK

Now in its ninth year, Ecumenical Bible Week, led by the Archdiocese of Dublin and the United Dioceses of Dublin and Glendalough in collaboration with many other Christian traditions, will run this year from Pentecost to Trinity Sunday, June 5 to 12. The overall theme for this year is ‘A New Pentecost:  Moving to the Edges’.

As in previous years, EBW will have opening and closing prayer events. There will be a Theological Symposium on the afternoon of Thursday 9 June where the theme will be ‘Listen to the Word’. That evening in Thinking Allowed a panel of Faith leaders will each give their ‘Personal Vision of a New Pentecost’. A new event being introduced this year will focus on the experiences of the ‘new’ Irish.

Check out the Ecumenical Bible Week’s Website at www.bibleweek.ie for further information and to register for the events which will be online. You can also follow and share Ecumenical Bible Week’s online posts on Facebook and Instagram. Posters attached.

ARCHBISHOP FARRELL, LIVING THE HOPE OF EASTER

“Easter is not just some date, but the meeting with Jesus that restores our lives, and rekindles the hope every person needs.” – Archbishop Dermot Farrell

Archbishop Farrell has released his Easter 2022 Pastoral Letter, Living the Hope of Easter. It can be read at https://dublindiocese.ie/living-the-hope-of-easter/. A video of Archbishop Farrell reading from his pastoral letter can be watched at https://youtu.be/TdWLWj_lCEU/.

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Parent(s) /Guardian(s),

 

We are delighted to announce First Holy Communion and Confirmation dates for 2022.  As with the last two years the sacraments will be celebrated on a class-by-class basis.

All children must be baptized Roman Catholics in order to receive the sacraments. If your child has not yet been baptized you must contact St. Mark’s Parish Office IMMEDIATELY to register, 01-4620777 Mon-Fri 10.30 – 12.30pm.

At least one parent/guardian must be verifiably Roman Catholic to have your child baptized.

 

A simple online application process will be available in the coming weeks to register your child for the sacraments. Hard copies of the application will be available through the parish offices in Springfield and Jobstown for anyone who cannot access the online platform. You will need your child’s Roman Catholic baptism certificate to complete the application. This is available from the church where the child was baptized.

To compliment the preparation work done in school, our parishes will offer various online resources between now and May to help you and your child/children prepare for these great gifts of God. The best preparation for receiving the sacraments is to pray every day with your children and bring them along to our Sunday celebrations in our parishes.

Details of the celebration of First Confessions for First Communicants will be issued in due course.

 

The Parish Team

To find details for each class, please click on SACRAMENTS at the top of the page and choose either First Holy Communion or Confirmation.

 

 

 

MASSES ON THE FIRST FRIDAY OF EACH MONTH throughout the year are offered for Those who are on our Altar List of the Dead. 
During this period of time, regular weekday Masses will be celebrated ONLY in St. Mark’s, Springfield, each weekday morning at 10am.
In the event of a funeral occurring in St. Mark’s during that time, it will be celebrated at 10am. We will give our regular weekday Mass goers as much notice as possible in the event of a funeral occurring and we ask the Rosary group to pray the Rosary at home privately during this time.
Weekend Masses will continue as normal in ALL our churches during this time. 
Many thanks for your continued prayer, support and understanding.
Your Faithfully,

The Parish Team
