Ar Lá Breithe na Maighdine Muire
A Mhuire a Mhaighdean, níor chualathas riamh
éinne a cuireadh faoi do chúram fial nach
bhfuair sólás is nach bhfuair síth.
Is tú réalt na mara,
is tú réalt na maidine
is tú réalt na hoíche,
is t ú réalt na n-aingeal,
is tú bláthfhleasc na bhFlaitheas.
Dé do bheatha, a Mhuire na ngrásta,
agus dé do bheatha, a Bhanríon ghrámhar,
Is beannaithe thú thar na mnáibh
is is beannaither Íosa, do NaomhPháiste.

Lady Day Dingle Mon Sept 8th 7:30pm
Letter to Confirmation Candidates 2013 & 2014.
A Chara,
Comhghairdeas ó chroí to you on the recent publication of your personal reflection of your Confirmation Patron. As part of Jubilee 150, our Pastoral Council invites you and your family to our Lady Day Dingle Mass on Monday next 8th September in St. Mary’s Church at 7.30pm.
At this Pattern liturgy we wish to present you and your family with a complimentary copy of “Treoraí agus Laochra an Chreidimh/Dingle Parish Directory & Patrons” on this Feast of Our Lady’s Birthday when we dearly hope you all can join with us.
Tá Dia láidir agus tá Máthair maith aige.
Is sinne le mór-mheas,
Bernie Budhlaeir, Cathy Griffin, Fr. Tomás,
Cathaoirleach Rúnaí Sagart Paróiste

You are invited to take part in our annual Pattern celebration when all students, whose work on their Confirmation Patron Saint as published in our Parish Directory, will be presented as a gift from Dingle Parish Pastoral Council to each student.
Following Mass and our Marian Procession all our Parish volunteers are invited to the Temperance Hall for our Annual Social Get-together. Bígí linn.
Treoraí agus Laochra Chreidimh
Dingle Parish Directory and Patrons
To highlight the 150th Jubilee of St. Mary’s Church, Dingle Parish Pastoral Council has published a colourful Directory including all Faith-based groups and pastoral services as well as the lives and witness of 107 heroes and heroines of the Faith.
All seven churches and oratories are well described together with interesting facts relating to ten cemeteries across the Parish landscape. The contact details of 15 Parish committees and 8 local schools are outlined. The generous everyday Parish service of more than 500 volunteer parishioners is hailed in Treoraí 7 Laochra an Chreidimh / Dingle Parish Directory and Patrons in celebration of St. Mary’s 150 Fé Bhláth.
The Directory is available for sale in the Parish Churches and from the Parish Office as well as in the following outlets in the Parish for €5. It makes for a beautiful gift.

Parish Jubilee Pilgrimage
Lough Derg and Knock
Dingle Parish Pastoral Council has taken the decision to defer our Jubilee Pilgrimage to Lough Derg and Knock to a future date in late Spring or early Summer 2015. We thank all who have expressed an interest in taking part and will investigate the best date and rate for our Jubilee Pilgrimage. Should you be interested in joining with us, please contact Cathy in the Parish Office 066-9151208 as we progress our plans.
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (The RCIA)
After the summer break we are hoping, early in October, to resume the RCIA meetings. The meetings will be held in the Díseart 7.00pm to 8.30pm on Monday evenings and will be open to any person, not brought up in the Catholic faith but interested in learning more about it and about what it means to become a full member of the Catholic Church.
The meetings will be relaxed and informal and will consist of a brief presentation on the subject or topic of the evening given by a member of the RCIA team, which will be followed by time for discussion and sharing; then there will be a short period of quiet reflection and sharing on a passage of Sacred Scripture and will finish with a brief prayer service. At the end there will be time for light refreshments and a chat.
If you are interested, or if you know somebody who may be interested in joining the group please get in touch with the Parish Priest in your local parish or area who will be very happy to answer any queries you may have and will put you in touch with a member of the RCIA team. (Fr. Jim Sheehy of the Corca Dhuibhne RCIA team).

Machnamh: For the Parish we live in
Let us pray
For all those who have not yet got a home of their own
And for all who are badly housed,
For those who have come here from overseas,
That they may be received with hospitality,
And for all who live alone.
We also pray for those who live in luxury and wealth,
That they may keep their homes and their hearts open to those who are in need.

We pray for those among us who have been struck
By illness or misf0rtune
Or who are suffering any other trial,
For those who are bored or in anxiety or despair,
For all who have been taken away from our midst,
For those who have been sent to prison,
For the mentally ill
And for the dead and the dying.

Let us pray for ourselves,
That we may find happiness in this Community and that we do not destroy each other by spreading hatred and division, but that we may be,
With each other and as in one body,
The City of God on earth. To be cont’d
(Your Word is Near – Huub Oosterhuis)
