The Next Family Mass will be celebrated on Sunday June 5th at 12.30pm.

As is a tradition at our Family Mass in June, all the children who received their First Communion and who celebrated the Sacrament of Confirmation are invited to process up with the Fr Gerry at the beginning of the Mass. This is a simple gesture and a nice way for our community to congratulate the children on their achievements.


Laudato SiCaring for Our Common Home

An evening to recall Pope Francis’s call to an ecological conversion.

7.30pm Thursday 12th May at
St Francis Xavier’s Church, Gardiner Street

On the anniversary of Pope Francis’s Encyclical Letter Laudato Si this was an opportunity to reflect quietly on our interaction with the environment. Pope Francis encouraged us that despite all that is wrong with the stewardship of our environment “all is not lost”. While we are capable of the worst we are also capable of rising above ourselves, choosing again what is good and making a new start.

A group of parishioners gathered for this workshop. We can't separate care of the earth from care for people. Our faith teaches us to be merciful towards others and an act of mercy is to feed the hungry. If we consider how rampant consumerism with resulting CO2 emissions and pollution impacts on harvests and water quality in the most deprived parts of the world, how can we say that we are merciful towards our fellow man. We are challenged by Pope Francis to an ecological conversion. Catherine Devitt of the Jesuit Centre for Faith and Justice and Fr Gerry Clarke SJ presented the bigger picture aspects of Care for Our Common Home. The enormity of the issue can be overwhelming but taking just one step is better than standing still so the group came up with some suggestions for action.These include cleaning up rubbish from the local streets, looking at 'Ecocongregation' initiatives and reviewing practical tips to reduce our Carbon foot print. We concluded with a Celtic blessing - remembering the deep reverence for creation in our native spirituality.
