Appeal by the Society of St Vincent de Paul, Holy Trinity Conference

Posted 17th February 2021 in Announcements

svp-logoThe Conference hasn’t had a church-gate collection since March 2020. Yet, we are getting requests for help continuously. We can only raise funds now through private donations from parishioners and we are most grateful to those parishioners who have been donating to us since the pandemic started. In this appeal, we wish to remind parishioners that our charitable work is on-going and that we can make use of all the help we can get to reduce the stress on our needy
families. You can safely donate in the following two ways:

(1) Put your donation in a sealed envelope which is addressed with a phrase such as ‘Donation for SVP’ and drop it into the letter box on the door of the Parish Office.

(2) If you have online access, you can log into and donate by card. You can also specify the location you want to help e.g. Holy Trinity, Dublin 13.

Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes

Posted 8th February 2021 in Announcements

Lourdes GrottoThursday the 11th of February is the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, normally the World Day of the Sick. This year the prayer below might be said on the days leading up to Our Lady’s Feast.

Mary, Our Lady of Lourdes,
you appeared at the grotto of Massabielle to Bernadette.
You brought her the radiant light of your smile,
the gentle brightness of your presence,
Day by day you conversed, one person to another.
We, too, come before you, and we humbly pray,
May those who doubt, discover the joy of trust.
May those who despair, sense your loving presence.
Mary, Our Lady of Lourdes,
you said to Bernadette,
“I am the Immaculate Conception”
We pray for sinners. Show them the way of life and truth.
May we discover the joy of God’s forgiveness in our lives
Instil in us a desire for childlike innocence and trust.
You gave birth to Jesus, our Saviour and our brother,
look tenderly on our beautiful but troubled world.
Guide us to the One who is the Source of all hope,
Jesus, your Son, the way, the truth and the life,
Who teaches us to call God Father. Amen.

Our Lady of Lourdes – pray for us.

St. Bernadette – pray for us.
