Since I arrived in September 2019 as Parish Priest of Three Patrons, Rathgar and Administrator of Holy Name, Beechwood Avenue, we have, as a community, been through challenging times. After careful reflection and bearing in mind my age and health, I have decided to retire as parish priest of Three Patrons, effective 26th November 2021.
I am very pleased to let you know that I will continue as pastor of the Parish of the Holy Name. Renovation works will begin on the Presbytery at 43 Upper Beechwood Avenue very soon and I will take up residence there when works are completed next spring.
May the Holy Spirit sustain us all in a spirit of gratitude for the blessings we have received. May the light of Christ’s love sustain us all as we journey on as His disciples.
Christmas Card Art Competition – Calling all our young artists!
Our Parish Christmas card will be delivered to all homes in the parish next month with the kind assistance of Transition Year students from Gonzaga College.
The Parish Council would like to have a nativity scene on the front of the card and are asking for pictures from our youngest parishioners—up to the age of 12! The closing date is Tuesday 23rd November. The winning entry will feature on our parish Christmas card!
