Papal Mass in Phoenix Park

Pope Francis is coming to Ireland to join in the World Meeting of Families celebrations being hosted in Dublin in August 2018. He will be presiding over a vigil/festival of families in Croke park on Saturday 25th August and celebrating Mass in the Phoenix Park on Sunday 26th August.

As a grouping of Parishes we are organising 5 buses to travel together to the Phoenix Park. (1 from each parish). Tickets have been booked and if you are interested in traveling with us please contact the parish office as soon as possible. These are on a first come first served basis. There will be more information shortly. To date the main note is that the bus will be leaving Ballygall at 9am and returning 9pm approx. There will be a lot of walking and standing so it is recommended to be fairly fit.

We will keep you updated as soon as possible. Below is a rough guide of time-line from where the bus will be parked. For more details log on to www.worldmeeting2018.ie

Overnight Pilgrimage to Knock

Pilgrimage to Knock in June 2018.

Booked for Sunday 24th June overnight. Staying in St. Mary’s newly refurbished centre.

Price to be confirmed (approx €100, full board and minibus donation) but this trip has been a very relaxed gathering in the peaceful surrounding of Knock Shrine. The basilica has been completely refurbished and as we go to print the Apparition chapel and parish church are recently revamped in preparation for Pope Francis’s visit next August. Making it a place of dignity and a centre of prayer.

Thanks to all who have booked. We will be leaving Ballygall on Sunday 24th at 10am and return Monday 9pm approx.

There are still a few places available now that we are bringing a second minibus.

The conversations take place in THE MARGARET AYLWARD CENTRE, Glasnevin Hill on Wednesday 25th April, Wednesday 2nd & 9th May, from 7.30 – 9pm. Each week there is a different focus which means that people can dip in and out as they wish without being under pressure to attend all sessions.
