Dear Parishioners,
It is with very mixed emotions that I am informing you today of some significant changes in our area team. 
The Archbishop has asked myself, Saule, our pastoral worker and Deacon Derek to move to new appointments. I will be taking a period of sabbatical (personal /spiritual renewal) before my next appointment, while Saule and Deacon Derek will be moving to the Clondalkin grouping of parishes.
A new pastoral worker and a Deacon have been appointed to the pastoral team here. Fr. Bill will take over my responsibilities as moderator of the grouping of parishes and he will be assisted by two new Priests.
The two new priests will probably have other responsibilities along with parish duties ,as does Fr. Bill so I ask all of you who have supported our parish team so well in the past while, continue to do so in the future as we build hope together in our diocese. 
Fr. Gerry will continue to work as part of the team and Fr. Martin will assist where he can.
Change always brings fears and doubts but also new opportunities for growth, both personally and as a community. 
May all of you who make our area such a beautiful place to work and live continue to build this community in faith, hope and love.
Please pray for myself ,Saule and Derek as we move to new adventures with the Lord and Fr. Bill as he builds the new pastoral team in our area. We look forward to meeting with many of you over the early weeks of Summer. 
The new changes come into effect on weekend of 9th /10 July.
God bless you All.
Fr. Pat McKinley on behalf of the Parish Team.
