A series of ‘Parish Conversations’ in preparation for the World Meeting of Families in August 2018, will conclude in Our Lady’s Hall on Tuesday 20th March at 7.30 pm. All are encouraged to attend and begin to be part of this great event. The theme this week is A Gospel of Hope for our Families.
National standardised tests for Maths and English in 2012 indicated competency for children in Moyross to be relatively poor, but the same tests carried out in 2016 showed significant improvement partly due to after school activities, homework clubs and other projects and initiatives supported by fundraising such as the Church Gate collection in Dalkey. This year the collection will take place after all Masses on 10th & 11th March 2018.
The Service of Prayer for Christian Unity will take place in St. Patrick’s Church on Tuesday 23rd January 2018 at 7.30 pm.
The speaker will be Fr Bob Whiteside, who will speak on the theme of World Meeting of Families.
