Thank you so much for the very kind welcome given me when I visited your parish on Easter Sunday to celebrate the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the dedication of the church.
Thank you also for the wonderful dinner in your house following the Mass, as well as for the beautiful gifts, including the Dingle crystal bowl. I am very grateful.
Please let your parishioners know how delighted I was to be part of their celebration.
With gratitude and prayerful best wishes in this Easter season, I am
Yours sincerely in Christ,

Laochra an Chreidimh II – Patrons
Saint Francis of Assisi was born in Italy. His nickname was Francessco. Francis lived the high-spirited life typical of a wealthy young man even fighting as a soldier for Assisi. On July 16th 1228 he was proclaimed a saint by Pope Gregory IX. He is known as the patron saint of animals and the environment. It is customary for Catholic and Anglican churches to hold ceremonies blessing animals on his feast day of October 4th.
I picked Saint Francis because my dad’s middle name is Francis and I am a fan of animals, nature and life. St. Francis will be an inspiring influence on my life in the years ahead. (Ollie Scoil Iognáid Rís)

St. Mary’s Jubilee Prayer
Faithful God,
we thank You for this House of Prayer,
symbol of our union with You,
with each other, and with our own community.

We thank You for the vision
of all the people who sacrificed
to build this church.

Within these walls,
you call on us to come together and
create a loving welcoming parish family.

From these walls,
you call us out into our station districts,
our diocese and our world
to be Your hands and feet
and to help build your Kingdom on earth.

May we respond to your timeless Word
and become truly Eucharistic people.
May we go forth filled with your sense of mercy,
justice, and loving care.

May we be good stewards of your creation,
guarding and celebrating your gift of life.
In this Year of Jubilee,
we ask You to touch our hearts anew
with the love of Christ your Son and
the fire of Your Holy Spirit.
Fill our lives with the courage
to honour our history,
to strengthen our Faith and
to prepare for our future.
We ask this through your Son,
Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.
O Mary conceived without sin,
Pray for us who have recourse to thee.
Dingle Parish Pastoral Council puts on record our sincerest buíochas ó chroí to all who planned, promoted and took part in our “150 Fé Bhláth”.
