New Restrictions on Church Opening
In the light of the very worrying increase in infection in the Dublin area, the entire County Dublin will be placed on Level 3 of the Government’s COVID-19 Resilience and National Recovery Plan, beginning at midnight on Friday 18th September for at least a three-week period.
The norms apply to all places of worship within County Dublin so places of worship will have to remain closed during the Level 3 restrictions, except for private prayer, weddings and funerals. Attendance at wedding liturgies and funerals will be limited to 25.
This means that ALL MASSES in our churches cannot take place during the restrictions.
However, we will resume the online Masses via our Facebook page at the following times:
Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10.30am
Sundays at 12noon
Keep checking our website for further updates
and help to pass on the news to others!

The Body of Christ
Congratulations to all the children in Ballyboughal, Naul and Garristown who received their First Holy Communion during the last few weeks. It was wonderful to finally be able to gather for the celebrations which were simple and beautiful. The children all looked amazing and we hope that it will be a moment for them to remember and treasure for ever.
We pray that they will continue to be nourished by this special Sacrament and will continue to grow, as members of our parish communities, as the Body of Christ.
Gifted in the Spirit
Many congratulations to all the young people who were recently Confirmed in Ballyboughal and Garristown. Although these celebrations were delayed due to the lockdown, we were delighted to finally be able to join them and their families for this important Sacrament. We wish them every blessing.
Baptisms: booking now via the Pastoral Area Office
Every year Trócaire asks for your help during Lent to fund lifesaving programmes around the world. This year, of course, it was not possible to return Trócaire boxes through schools or parishes in the usual way. This is the worst possible timing coming just as the world’s poorest people need us most. Therefore, Trócaire are appealing to you to return your Lenten donation.
Simply count or estimate what is in your box and donate in the following ways:
1. Online at www.trocaire.org
2. By phone: 1850 408 408
3. By post to Trócaire, Maynooth, Co. Kildare
The contents of each and every Trócaire box, no matter how small, come together to make a significant difference. This virus knows no borders, but neither does our compassion.
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.
