 We have launched YourParishApp as a new tool to engage with Parishioners and to make it easier for everyone to receive updates, daily Church readings - reflections, news and much more!
To download it to your smart device, just search for it on Play store, it's free of charge!
There are many different apps on it, so the one you are looking for is called YourParishApp and it has a capital letter Y with a fish sign for Jesus in the dark green background. Once it is on your phone/device, you will be given options. Choose Dublin Diocese and then our three parishes will be there as parishes option. Once you click on it, you will be ready to go! WE HOPE THAT YOU WILL TRULY ENJOY IT USING IT.
Please note, that you can send Prayer or Volunteer requests to the Parish Team on ENGAGE section.

AN ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION (as circumstances may not allow you to take part at the Eucharist)

MY JESUS, I BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE PRESENT IN THE MOST HOLY SACRAMENT . I LOVE YOU ABOVE ALL THINGS AND I DESIRE TO RECEIVE YOU INTO MY SOUL. SINCE I CANNOT AT THIS MOMENT RECEIVE YOU SACRAMENTALLY, COME AT LEAST SPIRITUALLY INTO MY HEART. I EMBRACE YOU AS IF YOU WERE ALREADY THERE AND UNITE MYSELF WHOLLY TO YOU. NEVER PERMIT ME TO BE SEPARATED FROM YOU.

AMEN.

A Prayer in the Time of the Coronavirus

Almighty and All–loving God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
we pray to you through Christ the Healer
for those who suffer from the Coronavirus Covid–19
in Ireland and across the world.

We pray too for all who reach out to those who mourn the loss
of each and every person who has died as a result of contracting the disease. 

Give wisdom to policymakers,
skill to healthcare professionals and researchers,
comfort to everyone in distress
and a sense of calm to us all in these days of uncertainty and distress.

This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord
who showed compassion to the outcast,
acceptance to the rejected
and love to those to whom no love was shown.

Amen.    

Archbishop Michael Jackson
Dublin & Glendalough
