Pope Francis is urging all Catholics to understand that they are called to be missionary disciples. This calls for a different vision of what it means to be Church. In this course – ideal for members of parish pastoral councils as they look ahead – we wish to explore together this new vision through reflecting on the signs of the times, the teaching of Pope Francis and a biblical understanding of faith. Our presenters have a wide range of experience in pastoral ministry as well as being theologians, missionaries, and teachers. The course is jointly organised by Spiritan Mission Ireland and the office of Mission and Ministry in the Archdiocese of Dublin. Early registration is advisable as places are limited. For more details, and to register contact Sean Goan firstname.lastname@example.org
Message from Mgr. Joseph McGuinness, Executive Secretary of the Irish Episcopal Conference: Sincere thanks to all who contributed so generously to the recent Special Collection for Ukraine. Nationally, this collection has raised to date over €3.25 million. The war in Ukraine, and the terrible suffering which has resulted, has seen a tremendous outpouring of compassion and generosity from our parish communities. Your contributions will bring much-needed relief to those in the region whose lives and livelihoods have been devastated. The funds raised will be used by the international Catholic Church agency, Caritas Internationalis, which is currently operating on the ground in Ukraine and its surrounding areas. We continue to keep the people of Ukraine in our thoughts, praying for peace and an end to this appalling humanitarian crisis.
As a result of the Dalkey Interchurch Lent Talks on "Caring for Creation" in March this year, it is hoped that St Patrick's and the Church of the Assumption will be able to agree a joint programme to foster an eco-friendly environment in and around Dalkey, in our streets, parks and gardens. One suggestion is for both churches to affiliate to Eco Congregation Ireland, a step which has already been taken by Holy Trinity Killiney church, headed by Canon Gary Hastings. The current issue of the ECI newsletter, featuring Holy Trinity Killiney, can be found at www.ecocongregationireland.com. Fr Liam Lacey of Church of the Assumption is currently considering possibilities and a decision is awaited from St. Patrick's Select Vestry.
Archbishop Eamon Martin of Armagh and Archbishop Dermot Farrell of Dublin, as President and Vice-President of the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference, have published the following statement to thank the parishes across Ireland for their extraordinary generosity in raising to date of over €3.25 million in response to the crisis in Ukraine.
