Partnership of Parishes
As you are no doubt aware, we have, until now, been in a partnership with the parishes of Meadowbrook, Ballinteer and Dundrum. Recently, it was announced that we will now also welcome the parish of Balally into our Partnership.
In the coming year, as part of Building Hope, we are all invited to work together towards a Partnership Council of Parishes, looking across all four parishes to plan for the scheduling of Masses and services, sharing our gifts and talents with one another.
In the words of Archbishop of Dublin, Dermot Farrell , “While each parish will retain its identity, its particular sense of community and its financial independence , it will be enabled within the partnership structure …….to draw strength for our shared mission”.
In his letter we are also reminded, “We have much to do together: supporting people to deepen their faith and relationship with God; creating the structures that support vibrant communities of faith; advocating for those who are on the margins”.
