RADICAL RENEWAL: HOW DUBLIN ARCHDIOCESE IS ‘BUILDING HOPE’
Fr Byrne who is the Moderator of the Dublin Diocesan Curia and Chair of the Building Hope Pastoral Strategy Implementation Group has an article on Radical Renewal that can be found at https://dublindiocese.ie/radical-renewal/ Please read it.
Collections during Mass on Sundays/ Holydays - Dublin diocesan policy directs those two diocesan separate collections be taken up during the Mass- the First Collection for the priests of the parish and the diocese (Common Fund) after the homily and the Second Collection (Share Fund) after the intercessions. The Share collection is sometimes replaced by a special diocesan collection as announced.
Parish Support Fund- weekly donations-Your weekly donations (Voluntary Family Offering) are vital for the running expenses of the Parish. This Parish Fund is used to pay salaries, the bills for lighting, heating, insurance, repairs and general maintenance. Please put what you have been giving for the running of the Parish into the BLUE BUCKETS on the tables beside the doors either before or after Mass. Parish upkeep depends on this fund.
There are newly printed Standing Order Forms available on the tables near the church-door. if you would like to fill in one and return it to the office/ safe in the church when convenient. You have been very generous with your contributions to the parish upkeep fund. Thank you.
If interested in joining the Funeral Ministry Team, please contact one of the parish clergy.
The Season of Creation began on 1 September, the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, and ends on 4 October, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of ecology. This is the annual Christian celebration to listen and respond together to the cry of Creation. It is dear to Pope Francis’ heart. This year many Christian communities will unite around the theme, “Listen to the Voice of Creation.” In response to this here in the Parish of Holy Family we will have a Holy Hour in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament on each of the Fridays in September beginning Friday 2nd from 7 pm – 8 pm. Please come along and join with the Parish Environmental Group to place before the Lord our concerns and worries for the world and all the creatures that inhabit it.

SYNOD SYNTHESIS PUBLISHED
The Synthesis of the Consultation in Ireland for the Diocesan Stage of the Universal Synod 2021 – 2023 has been published. Dr Nicola Brady, chair of the Steering Committee for the Irish Synodal Pathway, said: “The strong sense of shared responsibility that has guided our synodal process so far, from the local to the national level, has been a great encouragement. It is hoped that this will continue to motivate us to develop our skills of deep listening and discernment, as we reflect on the significance of our national synthesis, and the different voices of the church around the world, asking what God wants of us in light of what we have heard.” Click Here to access Synthesis Document.
