Year of The Family – September 2021 Kitchen Table Experiences

The Dublin Diocesan Year of the Family Resources for September were launched on 25 August in the Pro-Cathedral by Archbishop Dermot Farrell. Our aim is to offer simple activities mostly around the ‘Kitchen Table’ to encourage family reflection and action. Our wish too is to link the ‘Kitchen Table’ with the Tables of Word and Eucharist.

On Tuesday 28 September you have a chance to see what is proposed for October. This will be an online presentation on Zoom at 7.30 p.m.

To book your place please email lisia.cashen@dublindiocese.ie, by Monday 27 September, who will send you the link on the day.

Links are not to be shared for security reasons.

Morning and Evening Prayer

Monday evening Rosary for our young people.   Are you concerned about reluctance of many young people to embrace the faith?   If so, please join us on Monday evenings at 6.00 pm in Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, Ballycullen Avenue, to pray the Rosary for this special intention. It will take only 15 minutes or so.  All are welcome. 

Weekday morning Rosary:  After 10.00 am Mass each morning the Rosary is prayed by an ad-hoc group of parishioners at the back of the church. Anyone who would like to join in is very welcome.

Miraculous Medal Novena

Every Monday after 10.00 am Mass we have this short novena consisting of four special prayers and prayer for our own intentions.

Annual Bereavement Mass

The Annual Bereavement Support Mass in November each year is organised by the Bethany Bereavement Support Group.

Please click here for more information on the Bethany Bereavement Support Group.

Tuesday Morning Prayer Service

There is no Mass in the parish church on Tuesdays.   Instead, we have a service provided by some of our Ministers of the Word and Ministers of the Eucharist. We are grateful to these volunteers for their willingness to provide this service.   It has become a necessary but vital part of parish life.

The service consists of a penitential rite, reading of the word of God (scripture readings of the day), intercessory prayers and distribution of Holy Communion.  No doubt, in future, we will need, and can expect to see further lay involvement in parish ministry.
