Parish Pastoral Council                                  


'A Leadership Group working with the Priest for the good of the Parish


In 1986 the first Parish Pastoral Council was formed in Firhouse, when the then Parish Team (Fr. Con Sayers, Fr. John Dunphy and the Parish Sister Fionnuala O’Sullivan O.P.) invited Parishioners to a Parish Pastoral Planning Meeting.


At that meeting the Team cited the Decree on the “Apostolate of the Laity” of Vatican II as the reason why the laity, by virtue of their Baptism and Confirmation, should play an active part in working with the Priests to promote the Faith Life of the Parish.  Following this meeting a group was formed to represent each area of the parish.  Down through the years a Parish Pastoral Council has been elected every three years to look at, and respond to the Pastoral Needs of the Parish.


Today Firhouse Parish Pastoral Council, chaired by Seán Fallon (Acting), continues to work to share the good news of Christ with Parishioners in the Parish of Firhouse.  The other members of the current P.P.C. are Richard Flood, Ray Mulrooney, Anna Prior, Mary Reaney, Fr. Peter Reilly and Theresa Saab.


The Parish Pastoral Council initiated a number of special seasonal liturgies and events in the last year, especially during Lent and Easter.  More recently it organised the Parish Outreach during which gift / information / invitation packs were brought to over 2,400 homes throughout the Parish, with the help of volunteers from the Parish and from the Dublin Legion of Mary, to whom we are very grateful.
