The Sacrament of Reconciliation is a healing remedy for our sins, presented to God in the presence of the priest. Although serious matters should be brought before the priest when available, our lesser sins are healed through the celebration of Mass or with sincere contrition & good works.
Fr. Derek will provide the (appropriately socially distant) Sacrament of Penance & Reconciliation by appointment,
or as requested anytime by the homebound, the sick & the dying.
Please contact the Pastoral Area Office for all appointments, emergencies, & special needs (01 8354138 / 087 1911902).

OUR NEW DEACON
Hi, I would like to introduce myself. I'm Declan Colgan and I was Ordained to the Permanent Diaconate here in the Archdiocese of Dublin last August. I have been appointed by the Archbishop to Brackenstown Parish and the Pastoral Area of Garristown, Naul, Rolestown. I am looking forward to working in this area and getting to know the people in these areas but I know it will be a slow progression due to the Covid 19 restrictions.
Please stay safe and God Bless.
PARISH FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTIONS
We are aware that these are very difficult and worrying times for all of us. Our Parish income has suffered as a result of the imposed restrictions due to the Coronavirus. If you are able to offer some regular financial support, via Standing Order, we would be most grateful.
Those who very kindly contribute to the Family Offering via the parish envelopes may wish to continue using the envelopes by collecting them at home and bringing them back to the parish when it is safe to do so. Alternatively, you may wish to consider replacing your envelope donation to contribute with a standing order.
Standing Order Forms can be downloaded and returned to the Pastoral Area Office. Many thanks.
