THE SYNODAL PATHWAY
“In the one People of God, therefore, let us journey together, in order to experience a church that receives and lives this gift of unity and is open to the voice of the Spirit” – Pope Francis
“Pope Francis is offering us a way of being a church- the Synod Pathway, of walking more closely and being a church that is hope filled despite many challenges” – Archbishop Dermot Farrell
Preparation for the Synod is underway at Holy Family Parish and the animators nominated by the PPC will speak about the Synod to congregations at Masses on 19/20 February and 05/06 March.
Invitation cards to the meetings (in preparation for the Synod) are available.

Ash Wednesday falls on the 2nd March and Lent begins. Ash Wednesday is a day of fast and abstinence. Mass on Ash Wednesday will be at 10.00 a.m. and 7.00 p.m. in the church. Blessed ashes will be available to the congregation during and after Mass to take away.
Newly Ordained Priest- Fr. Joseph Keegan was ordained a priest for ministry in Dublin Diocese by Archbishop Farrell at the church of the Most Precious Blood, Cabra West, Sunday last. Fr. Joe Keegan will celebrate Mass here at 10.30 a.m. on Sunday 6th March. Please pray for Fr. Joe in the exercise of his priestly ministry in the diocese.
The season of Lent begins this Wednesday and continues for the next forty days and will be followed by Holy Week and Eastertide.
The blessed ashes on Ash Wednesday are intended to remind us of our mortality and of our need for conversion through repentance and commitment to the way of the Gospel.
