Summer Dues 2024

Our Gospel reading at Mass today talks about sowing seed on the land. Priests and other parish leaders and ministers are being asked to find new and creative ways of sowing the word of God, seeking to build up partnerships of parishes in the times that are upon us. Night and day, while we are asleep, when we are awake, the seed is spouting and growing; how we do not know (Mark 4:26-34). The mustard tree emerges from the tiniest of seeds. We do not yet know what will emerge for the Church locally, but ‘we are always full of confidence’ (2 Corinthians 5:6). We are full of prayer too – it is the Lord’s work, the work of the Holy Spirit who calls us to mission.

Please support your priests through the Summer Dues collection. The generosity that people show towards their priests is indispensable. Please play your part, too, in a renewed and active involvement of all parishioners as together we sow seeds for a future harvest, trusting always in God’s plans for us. I wish you many blessings over the summer months.

+Dermot Farrell, Archbishop of Dublin
