Thank you for your generosity
World War I ended at 11 am on the 11/11/1918.
Fr Willie Doyle S.J. from Dalkey was a war army chaplain who was killed during the war while attending wounded soldiers in Belgium.
A film called Bravery Under Fire on the life of Fr Willie Doyle will be shown on Sun11th Nov on ETWN at 9.30 pm. ETWN: Sky channel 588; Virgin Media 815. The film is based on a book written by Pat Kenny, one of our parishioners called “To raise the fallen”.
The film was recently presented to Pope Francis and was shown in the Vatican.
Well done Pat Kenny.
No more plastic Christmas!
The Halloween just gone showed how much plastics are still making inroads into our lives.
To reverse this requires action from all of us, now, if the pollution of the water in our rivers and oceans is to be reversed.
We in this parish are part of the problem and can be part of the solution. Why not, as we pray and worship, consider what we can do between now and Christmas to cut out or at least reduce as much as possible our use of plastics, especially non-reusable types.
Do we need so much wrapping? Can we use paper more, can we put our presents into home-made containers, perhaps with a note to say why we are doing so? If we don’t actively change our habits, how can we expect others to do so.
As Christians, we should be leading the way. Are we?
REST IN PEACE
Your prayers are requested for the souls of

MAY THEIR SOULS AND THE SOULS OF ALL THE FAITHFUL DEPARTED THROUGH THE MERCY OF GOD REST IN PEACE. AMEN.
