Ethiopian Orthodox Christmas

For the past year or so, following discussion with the Archdiocese, the Ethiopian Orthodox Church in Dublin has found temporary refuge in our parish hall for their Sunday celebrations.  This is a small but very vibrant community and we are very happy to have them with us bearing witness to our Christian unity. They celebrate Christmas on 6 January, so we wish Abba Yohanes and his community a very happy Christmas.  On 29 December they were joined by a number of our own community for their wonderful celebration of the Feast of St Gabriel—the archangel being the patron of their parish. A lovely day.

Appointment of Fr Fachtna McCarthy as Administrator of St Mary’s

 

Fr Fachtna McCarthy
Fr Fachtna McCarthy

In a letter dated 19 December Archbishop Diarmuid confirmed the appointment of Fr Fachtna McCarthy as Administrator of  St Mary’s, Haddington Road, effective from 1st January. Clearly not a man to waste time, Fr Fachtna will lead us into the New Year, celebrating mass in St Mary’s for the first time on New Year’s Day. We are delighted to welcome Fr Fachtna as our new pastor and  he will have our full support in a very challenging task. He comes to us at a very exciting time in our church life, as we feel a resurgence of enthusiasm and hope and the beginning of an opening up of new possibilities for mission and evangelisation in our modern world.  He will bring much experience, particularly in the area of faith formation and we look forward to working with him.   Fáilte

A very special rendition of ‘O Holy Night’ recorded at St. Mary’s Haddington Road

This YouTube video was recorded at St. Mary’s in Haddington Road and we are tremendously proud of it.  The soloist is one of our two cantors, Emer Barry with her group Affiniti, the Palestrina Choir and an Orchestra from Prague.  All the proceeds from the sale of the EP will go to support the tremendous work of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul.  (You can see the video here).

Walk of Light  Route Change and Apologies

Due to an oversight by the organisers, we did not take into consideration a major rugby match at the AVIVA when organising this year’s walk.  Because of the difficulties this would pose the walk has now been rerouted as follows:
Christchurch Leeson Park, Church of Ireland, 4pm continue to the Church of Mary Immaculate, Refuge of Sinners, Rathmines to arrive there at 5pm and at 6pm at St. Finian’s Lutheran Church, Adelaide Road (as previously planned,
We hope to have the walk visit St Mary’s in the future.
