Friday morning mass change

  To clear up any misunderstanding the change to our weekday mass schedule only relates to Fridays

Beginning on Friday 26th of October, 10.00 am mass on Friday mornings only will no longer be available in Our Lady of Victories Church. There will be an opportunity to gather for prayers at 10.00 am which will be led by a Minister of the Word. Mass is still being celebrated Monday to Thursday here at 10.00am

 Change to Vigil Mass time

On and from Saturday 6th of October  2018 our Saturday evening mass has been at the earlier time of 6.00 pm.

We hope that this will be agreeable with everyone especially our regular Saturday evening mass goers.

South Sudan

Riwoto: On  1st and 2nd September we welcomed Fr Tim  Galvin here to update us our parish sponsored project in Riwoto, South Sudan. There was a collection after Masses and a most generous sum of €3,690 was raised. We have received a letter from the Bursar General of the St Patricks Missionary society  conveying their sincere thanks to all our parishioners and assuring us of continued remembrance in our daily Masses and prayers.

 

Papal Visit

Our pilgrims led by Fr Frank on the Parish Bus returned from the Phoenix Park safe and sound. We  were uplifted after a wonderful day in the Phoenix Park when Pope Francis celebrated Mass. Despite the walk, rain, squally showers we came home glad to have partaken in this historic Mass and to be part of the Glasnevin grouping.  Photographs of the World Meeting of the Families and our own Ethiopian initiative will be organised and put up on the website.  Here are just  some photos of that lovely morning when Pope Francis drove by our Church.

We were also very proud of all our parishioners who helped out in any way with the World Meeting of the Families and of course of our Gospel Choir who sang at the celebration for newly married couples in the Pro Cathedral. Many parishioners watched the Papal Mass in Glasnevin Church and were delighted with the hospitality and welcome they received there.  Also we know that many of you who were not able to go to Croke Park or the Phoenix Park watched coverage of the Papal Visit on television.

Ethiopian Visitors

 Welcome to Ethiopian families and priests

We hosted the welcome Mass for the Ethiopian families that the Glasnevin Grouping sponsored as part of our World Meeting of the Families on Sunday 19th August. There were refreshments afterwards and it was great to see so many people here to welcome the families. There was a series of events organised (see updates) during the week. It was a very positive experience for all involved. An Ethiopian Mass was held on Friday in Our Lady of Dolours and it was celebrated by a number of Ethiopian priests including Fr Sintayheu of course.  While the Ethiopian rite differs from our Latin rite, Fr Richard explained that it is one of the oldest Catholic rites and it was very moving.

Afterwards a ceili which also included Ethiopian dancing was held and we were all  treated to a great party in Our Lady of Dolours parish centre,
