The Monday Evening Rosary

The Monday rosary takes place in the church every Monday evening at 6pm. Its main intention is to pray for the return to faith and practice of our children and grandchildren, something we’re all so conscious of nowadays. We also pray for other special intentions, and everyone is most welcome to send in their requests. Please join us! The time may be inconvenient for you, but isn’t that a small sacrifice to pay for such a vital intention?

The Letter Film – A Message for Our Earth

Trócaire works with parishes and communities across the island of Ireland to educate, inspire and motivate people to take action for global justice.

“Faced as we are with global environmental deterioration, I wish to address every person living on this planet.” (Pope Francis, Laudato Si’, 3)

On October 4th 2022, a Laudato Si’ movie, The Letter – A Message for our Earth, was launched in Rome. In just three weeks it had 8 million views on YouTube! The Letter, produced by the Laudato Si’ Movement, together with the Oscar and BAFTA-winning team Off the Fence, is a film-documentary which follows 5 courageous changemakers from different parts of our world as they tell their stories and bring hope to the global conversation to care more deeply for our common home. This is a movie which explores the brutal situation our world is in right now as we try to address the climate and biodiversity crises, and how ordinary people are doing what they can to make a difference.

Millions of people around the world have already watched The Letter online and we need you to help us arrange community screenings around Ireland and begin the conversation where you are.

Dominican Magazine

Many of us may remember getting the ‘Blessed Martin’ magazine when we were growing up; now it’s the ‘St. Martin’ magazine, and it contains a wonderful mix of articles, both religious and secular, covering a wide range of interests. It costs only €14.40 per year (for 12 issues).

If you’d like a copy delivered to your door, please phone or text Ray Ryan at 087 9195012, or leave your name and number in the parish office.

We again appeal for new members. We got only one new member in September and lost four since Covid struck. What about a new year resolution?
