MAKE THIS LENT A GREEN ONE
The Parish Environment Group - PEG - urges parishioners to add an environmental aspect to Lent. For example, make a special effort to reduce your consumption, for example of plastic bottles and other throwaway items.
The next parish litter clean-up will be held on Sat. 10 March at 11.00am, assembling at the Parish Resource Centre.
Why not offer up an hour for Lent?
The Mass for all past pupils of St Mary’s Dominican Convent Dun Laoghaire will take place on Sunday 18th February at 3pm in the Primary School Hall, Convent Road.
All past pupils welcome
