Pastor's Desk: Third Sunday of Easter

Posted 7th May 2011 in Pastor's Desk

SHARE Sunday

As well as being the Third Sunday of Easter, today is also SHARE Sunday here in the diocese of Dublin. As parishioners are aware, we take up a collection most Sundays in support of SHARE during Mass. Today we have a letter from Archbishop Diarmuid Martin to be read at all Masses where he speaks about how that money is dispersed. The SHARE newsletter can be viewed here. I want to thank you for your continued support of the SHARE collection which is administered centrally by the Finance Secretariat of Archbishop’s House. For the year ended 30th June 2010, this parish contributed €39,760.

Have a great week.
Fr. Eoin
