Parish Envelope Scheme and Calendar 2011

In the next few days every household will receive, a Féilire Eaglasta 2011 and a box of envelopes for your weekly offertory contribution. Also included is an envelope for your Christmas Dues contribution. The Offertory collection funds all running costs and maintenance in our Parish, including insurance, staffing and Diocesan Levy. Tax can also be claimed back by the Parish if any PAYE taxpayer has contributed over €250. We invite every household to participate in this scheme and invite new parishioners to register by contacting the Parish Office on 9151208. A full account of both income and expenditure will be published in the New Year. We thank all our collectors, committee members, counting teams and teangmhálaithe / contact people who serve tirelessly in this essential Parish work.

Spare envelopes for Christmas Dues are available at the back of the three Parish Churches.

Spare 2011 calendars will also be available at the back of the Church for any visitors or should you wish to send one to family member living elsewhere.

Shop Local – Buy Irish

Last Sunday our own community launched its seasonal festive programme with Dingle’s Fife and Drum Band leading a colourful Parade of Light. We do well to reflect on how we can all support home industry and focus on the challenge and responsibility to do our level best to support our own businesses which provide employment for our people.

NB: Because of the adverse weather conditions and holiday forecast we remind and invite all of you to keep a watchful and caring eye out for all our elderly Parishioners and all who live alone.

Ní neart go chur le chéile

Ar scáth a chéile maireann Pobal Dé.

The final preparations are being made in earnest for Christmas. For us, as a people, a nation, and as a Church, it has been a difficult year and Advent has given us the opportunity to pause, to reflect, to rediscover the power of God’s love and to recognise our need of him and his healing, now more than ever. In our final days of preparation for the celebration of Christ’s first coming amongst us, let us resolve to use these final days to prepare ourselves, that we will be more ready to celebrate the great gift of Christ to us at Christmas; the gift of himself.

Our Advent service of penance is meant to make us ready in mind and heart for the coming of Christ, which we are soon to celebrate in the Mass of Christmas.

Eternal Son of God,

creator of the human family

and our redeemer,

come at last among us

as the child of the Immaculate Virgin,

and redeem the world.

Reveal your loving presence

by which you set us free from sin

in becoming one like us in all things but sin,

For you live and reign for ever and ever. Amen.


A Dhia, gabhaim buíochas leat as ucht do ghrá dom. Tá brón orm faoi mo pheacaí uile: Nach raibh grá agam duitse ná do dhaoine eile. Cabhraigh liom mo shaol a chaitheamh ar nós Íosa agus gan peaca a dhéanamh arís. Amen.

(1) Le Coinnle na n-Aingeal

Le coinnle na n-Aingeal tá an spéir amuigh breachta

Tá fiacail an tseaca sa ghaoth ón gcnoc

Adaigh an tine is teir chun na leapan

Luífidh Mac Dé ins an tigh seo anocht.


Fágaig’ an doras ar leathadh ina coinne

An Mhaighdean a thiocfaidh is a Naí ar a h-ucht

Deonaigh do shuaimhneas a ligint a Mhuire

Luífidh Mac Dé ins an tigh seo anocht


Bhí soilse ar lasadh i dtigh sin na h-aíochta

Cóiriú gan caoile, bia agus deoch

Do cheannaithe ola, do cheannaithe síoda

Ach luífidh Mac Dé ins an tigh seo anocht.

(Máire Mac a’ tSaoí)

(2) Adeste Fideles

Adeste Fideles laeti triumphantes,
Veníte, veníte in Bethlehem.
Natum vidéte, Regem Angelorum:

Veníte adoremus, (3) Dóminum.


Deum de Deo, lumen de lúmine,
gestant puellae viscera
Deum verum, genitum non factum:
Veníte adoremus, (3) Dóminum.


(3) O Come All Ye Faithful

O Come All Ye Faithful
Joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem.
Come and behold Him,
Born the King of Angels;
O come, let us adore Him, (3).
Christ the Lord.
O Sing, choirs of angels,
Sing in exultation,
Sing all that hear in heaven God’s holy word.
Give to our Father glory in the Highest;
O come, let us adore Him, (3)
Christ the Lord.
