We pray for those who have died recently: Mary Healy (Brittas) We extend our deepest sympathies To her family and friends. Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord And may perpetual light shine upon her. Sunday 1st November 2015 Saggart 11.30am Mass will be entirely in the Irish Language On Sunday 1st November, the 11.30am Mass in Saggart Church will be completely ‘as Gaeilge’. This Mass will be broadcast live on Radio na Gaeltachta. The broadcasting team have indicated to us that it would be very helpful if there is as little background noise as possible in the church during the broadcast. Hence, we would ask parishioners to make an extra effort to be in your seats before 11.30am on Sunday 1st Nov. to facilitate this live broadcast. Time Out with God for Women Aged 20 - 40 A day of prayer for women aged 20-40 will take place in the Divine Master Prayer Centre, White’s Cross, Balckrock, Co. Dublin on Saturday 14th November 2015.

You are welcome to arrive after 10am, join with us for Mass at 11.30 am, lunch about 12.30pm and Evening Prayer at 6pm and supper afterwards. Eucharistic Adoration continues in our Chapel until 10 pm.

Kindly inform the sisters if you plan on attending by Facebook message (PDDM Dublin) or email Sr. Louise at [email protected]

Workshop A: PARISH PASTORAL COUNCILS Ten Years on......'.Here's What You Said ' The wealth of experience and learning gained by Parish Pastoral Councils over the past 10 years has been captured in a Review carried out by the Office for Evangelisation & Ecumenism. This workshop led by Ellie McKeown from the Office for Evangelisation & Ecumenism and Leonard Kaye, a Pastoral Area Support Worker, will give an overview of the Review findings and help PPCs to make the most of the Workbook. Workshop B: Tracing Gospel Sparks - Finding God in Everyday Life This workshop is a follow on from a similar workshop which took place last year which proved to be very popular. During this workshop we will listen to how we trace Gospel Sparks in our everyday lives. Our own story becomes the Word through which Jesus breaks through, with endless possibilities for nourishment and courage in our families and wider community. This workshop will be presented by members of Partners in Faith. Workshop C: Grandparents - Passing on Faith in the Family The Catholic Grandparents Association is an international group of people who are doing everything they can to fulfil the mission statement of the association "Passing on the Faith and keeping prayer at the heart of family life " This workshop is focused on Grandparents. It will help them realise their wonderful vocation to pass on their Faith. The workshop will be facilitated by a representative from the Grandparents Association. Workshop D: Laudato Si - Care for our Common Home “What kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us, to children who are now growing up?” (160). This question is at the heart of Laudato si’ (May You be praised), the Encyclical on the care of the common home by Pope Francis. This is an opportunity for reflection on the main themes of Pope Francis’ Encyclical. This workshop will be presented by Sr. Eileen O'Donoghue and Sr. Maureen Ferguson.
