The Parish Pastoral Council warmly invites all parishioners to join in a Parish Pilgrimage for the final Holy Door ceremony in Clonard on the evening of Friday 28th October. As the Extraordinary Year of Mercy inaugurated by Pope Francis nears conclusion, the theme for this month’s ceremony will be ‘Our Lady, Mother of Mercy.’ Fr. Brendan Keane, CSSR, will lead the ceremony which will consist of introductory prayers, passing through the Holy Door, homily and reflection. There will also be an opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation for those who wish to do so.
If you would like to attend, and we encourage all to do so, please leave your name in the sacristy. If you do not have access to personal transport but would like to be part of this pilgrimage, please contact Joe McGinnity (9040 2776) as a lift can be arranged.
The ceremony starts at 7.15 pm and should conclude by 8.30. Pilgrims should assemble at the front of Clonard Church prior to the 7.15 pm start.
The Parish webcamera is now online, all Masses from the church will be streamed via the website and can be accessed around the world.
It is hoped that broadcasts will enable Parishioners who are sick and housebound, and who have access to the internet, to be a part of the daily celebration of the Eucharist. If you have a relative or friend who would like to use live-streaming and may not be familiar with the internet, please help them to access the service via whichever device they can easily learn to use.
We are very grateful to the Order of the Knights of Saint Columbanus for their generous donation towards the cost of this project.
After the success of our webcam trial over the Easter Period and a generous donation from the Order of the Knights of Saint Columbanus, work has commenced to install a permanent webcam in the Church. It is hoped to have it online towards the end of September broadcasting the weekday and weekend Masses.
