Welcome to our Parish Website

Parish of St. Thomas The Apostle  Parishes of Springfield, Brookfield and Jobstown
 

CORONAVIRUS COVID-19

Dear Parishioners,


We hope that you All are continuing being safe and well!
Let us All keep trusting the Lord's Presence in our lives and in the world as we are approaching the New Year.
With our churches closed due to the Government's restrictions, please join us for daily Mass on weekdays at 10 am & Sundays at 12.30 pm on St. Mark's parish's website: www.stmarksspringfield.org

Adoration will continue daily in St. Mark's parish church from Monday, 4th of January from 10.30 am to 12.30 pm.

Together in prayer,
Parish Team

 

PLEASE ACTIVELY SUPPORT YOUR PRIESTS, SHARE COLLECTION AND YOUR PARISH USING THE DONATE BUTTON BELOW

Income to our parishes, our priests and our diocese have collapsed during the last few months, to the point where our diocese of Dublin will be making one third of our lay staff redundant and our priests have had a twenty five percent pay cut. Each of our parishes have been spending significantly more than we brought in over the last number of years. This is simply not sustainable. We need every person who supports our parish community to become a CONSCIOUS contributor under three headings:

A. Your Parish

B. Your Priests (Previously 1st Collection at Mass)

C. Your Diocesan Services / Poorer Parishes (Previously SHARE, 2nd Collection at Mass)

 

 

How Can I Contribute?

We will no longer be ‘passing the basket’ at Mass for collections (B) and (C) above. Here’s how to contribute:

To Your Parish:

This pays all parish expenses, repairs/maintenance/salaries/insurance/utilities, etc.

· Use the ‘donate’ button on the St. Mark’s Parish Website (stmarksspringfield.org) or our Facebook page [parishes of Springfield, Brookfield, Jobstown (St. Mark’s parishioners only)].

· Set up a Standing Order with your bank – Forms available through the parish office.

· Sign up for a box of ‘Family Offering’ envelopes.

· Fill in form on reverse of this sheet and return to office.

To Your Priests and SHARE:

· Use the ‘donate’ button on St. Mark’s Parish Website or Facebook page (St. Mark’s parishioners only for the moment).

· Use the First/Second Collection envelopes available in churches and make a weekly/monthly donation. Return to parish church/sacristy/any member of the parish team.

· Sign up for envelopes for 1st/2nd collections (priests/Share, diocese).

THANK YOU!

Some inspiration, as the new year begins

(i) The message of Pope Francis for the 54th World Day of Peace. The Holy Father is always interesting on wider global issues. You can read the messagehere.

(2) One of the most theological of the Christmas carols is Of the Father’s Love Begotten. To listen to a beautiful performance, which is also visually appealing, click here. For the words and a little more about the hymn itself, go here.

Wishing you all every blessing in 2021, especially good health and safety.
