Why not attend one of the Wednesday night talks taking place in place in Margaret Aylward Centre, Glasnevin: First Talk is Wednesday 11th March: Rev. Gordon Linney (Author, Thinking Anew: Faith in a World of Change and Doubt)


Lent is a traditional time for almsgiving and we have always supported Trocaire here in OLV. Trocaire boxes are available for collection from the church. The simple Trocaire box is a very important visual reminder to us of the Christian message of charity.  On 22nd March we look forward to welcoming a speaker from Trocaire to talk to us at Masses about the work of Trocaire and the practical application of our support.

Next weekend the outdoor collection for St Vincent de Paul will take place after Masses.

Recently Deceased. We pray for George Murtagh, Audrey O’ Toole and William Sweetman whose funerals took place here this week. May they enjoy perfect peace in the presence of God and may their families and friends be comforted at this time.
