ACCORD

Accord Dublin’s Annual Collection will take place on the weekend of 13th & 14th February.  The demand for services is greater than ever.   With counselling agencies of all sorts anticipating a “tsunami of demand” and Garda sources reporting a large increase in domestic violence,  it is clear that there a great need for Accord’s services in our communities.   We need those who need our services to contact us, those who support us to continue to do so and new donors to enable the work to continue.

Counselling continues by phone, and contact can be made via our centres or on our helpline at 01 9059555.   Marriage preparation courses have continued via zoom, and can be booked on our website.  To enable our services to continue to meet the demand, we need your support.

You can donate in the following ways:

  • Online at www.accorddublin.ie where you will find a DONATE button.
  • By post to Accord Dublin, Holy Cross Diocesan Centre, Clonliffe Road, Dublin 3.
  • By bank transfer to ACCORD Dublin Catholic Marriage Care Service CLG, Bank of Ireland, 88 Lower Camden Street, Dublin 2.
    IBAN: IE27 BOFI 9001 1357 0742 03; BIC:BOFIIE2D.

Accord would like to thank the Parishioners who contributed so generously to last week’s collection.

Contributions for Priests Working in Parishes and Share

Financial support of Priests working in Dublin Parishes, and retired or sick Diocesan Priests, is the First Collection at Weekend & Holiday Masses, Christmas & Easter Offerings (Dues) and Offerings given to the Priest / Parish at Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals; and is known as the ‘Common Fund’ here in the Dublin Diocese.

Thankfully, we in our parish have live steaming, where you can partake in the Masses celebrated by Webcam.  The Firhouse Parish Website has a facility for you to contribute if you wish.  Please go to www.firhouseparish.ie and click the ‘Donate’ button on the Home Page.  There you will be given a choice.

You may also contribute now by using the special ‘double’ envelopes on the Missalette Tables and at the Collection boxes around the Church. All envelopes may be placed in those boxes including the ‘Family Offering’.  Envelopes may also be left into Presbytery 1, or the Parish Office.

I thank you for your support and generosity.  May the Lord Bless and protect you.

With every good wish.

Fr Peter.

Coronavirus Prayer

Plenary Indulgence

The Holy Father Pope Francis presided over an extraordinary global celebration (Statio orbis) of prayer on 27 March 2020.

The Holy Father’s address is called URBI ET ORBI.  It is very unusual for this to happen.  URBI ET ORBI normally only happens at Easter and Christmas.   More information.
