At the meeting in relation to the Dalkey/Mosney Migrant Project, it was decided to arrange for a group of 55 adults and children from the Mosney Direct Provision Centre to visit Tuam Castle, have lunch in Supermacs and then visit the Hill of Tara on Saturday 9th June 2018. We are hoping that some parishioners from Dalkey will also make this trip in order to accompany the group from Mosney. See EVENTS

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.
