Sharing Christmas Gifts
At Christmas time we may receive more gifts than we need. CROSSCARE, the Social Support Agency of the Catholic Archdiocese of Dublin, can redistribute surplus gifts to people who may not have received any Christmas presents. A box has been placed close to the Crib in the Pro--Catherdal where nonperishable gifts may be deposited. Also you can drop them into the parish office and we will take them to the local Crosscare depot in Dundrum at the Methodist Church
The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul would like to thank the parishioners of St. Attracta’s for their generosity at our annual collection.
The amount collected was €15,530
We wish you all a very Peaceful Christmas and Happy New Year

In Sept 2016 Fr. Fidelis and Fr. Christopher arrived to our Parish from their homeland in Nigeria. Whilst it took them some time to adjust to our lovely Irish weather.... they were very quick to settle into life in the Meadowbrook Parish. Both Priests will leave us in August and will be missed by members of all 3 Parishes - Ballinteer, Dundrum and Meadowbrook. They maybe leaving us for now but they will always be welcome to what they will remember as their second home. Slan leat agus go raibh mile maith agat.
