TEMPORARY CLOSING OF CHURCHES 

Given how high the numbers associated with the pandemic currently are we are, until further notice, temporarily suspending the opening of our churches for private prayer.

 

As well as the general safety aspect, this will help us to maintain the churches safely for any funerals, and will also give our dedicated team of sanitisers a much needed break from the wonderful work they have been doing consistently since last year's end of the first lockdown.

 

We hope that you will at this time understand and support this decision.

 

Please keep checking our website and social media for further announcements.

The Pastoral Area Office is still open

for phonecalls and emails only.

Please join us

for our online Mass

Tuesdays  10.30AM

Wednesdays in lent 10.30am

Thursdays   10.30am

NEW FAMILY OFFERING ENVELOPES FOR NAUL PARISH

(NAUL, BALLYBOUGHAL, DAMASTOWN)

The new Family Offering Envelopes for the Parish of Naul will be available for collection from the Pastoral Area Office from Saturday 20th February onwards.  It would be greatly appreciated if you could phone or email in advance of collection so we can allocate suitable collection times as the Office is still closed at this time due to Level 5 restrictions.

Baptisms: Due to current level 5 restrictions unfortunately all confirmed Baptisms had to be cancelled. Once restrictions lift, all cancelled Baptisms will be rescheduled on next available dates. For new Baptism requests, please click here to complete a Baptism Application Form and send to the office by email or post along with a copy of the child's Birth Certificate. New Requests will be allocated dates once all rescheduled Baptisms have taken place. Any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the office.

Retirement of

Archbishop Diarmuid Martin

Pope Francis formally accepted Archbishop Diarmuid Martin's request for retirement in December 2020 after over 16 years of faithful service.

We wish Archbishop Diarmuid every blessing in his retirement and thank him for his many years of ministry and leadership in the diocese.

We remember with great fondness his last visit to our Pastoral Area to officiate at the formal opening of the Pastoral Area Office

If you would like to send a message of appreciation to Archbishop Diarmuid you can email us and we will pass them on.

Welcome Archbishop Dermot Farrell

On 29th December 2020 Pope Francis appointed Bishop Dermot Farrell as the next Archbishop of Dublin.  He was installed as Archbishop on 2nd February 2021 in the Pro Cathedral in Dublin.

We would like to congratulate Archbishop elect Dermot on his appointment and extend our welcome to the diocese of Dublin.

 

We look forward to working with him as we continue to grow as Church.

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.

Declan

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.

IMPORTANT Garda Vetting Announcement

If you have recently completed a Garda vetting form but have not received or replied to an email from the National Vetting Bureau, please contact the Pastoral Area Office.  (The email may have found its way into your Junk or Spam box)  It is vitally important that the Vetting process is completed as soon as possible.  Please let us know if you need any help with this.
