Congress Parish Mass

Below are some photos from our parish celebration of the International Eucharistic Congress, where we welcomed especially our schoolchildren and parents. The last time the Congress was in Ireland was in 1932, exactly 80 years ago. Some people who were at school then were at the Congress Mass and they still have happy memories of it. We hope that by having our Congress Mass here in Harold’s Cross our children will also have happy memories, when they are old, of the time they celebrated the Congress in 2012.

Thanks to our parish committee who organised the Mass, with great cooperation from our three schools. And a big thank you to Fr Michael Drumm, Chair of the Catholic Schools Partnership, for coming to be with us. We ask God to bless him as he guides and safeguards Catholic school education in the years to come.

Pilgrim God, we give you thanks and praise.
You constantly journey with us even in our darkness and doubts.
We seek your way of loving kindness to walk together as one family.
Open our eyes to recognise you in the faces of one another,
in the breaking of bread and in the splendour of creation.
May the risen Christ sow seeds of hope and new life deep within us.
May our hearts and minds be filled with your Word, bringing forth truth, justice and peace.
May the Holy Spirit working in and through us do much more
than we can dare to imagine as we live out our baptismal calling in humble and loving service.
We make this our prayer through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Mary, Mother of the Church, pray for us.
St Laurence O’Toole, pray for us.
St Kevin, pray for us.
St Brigid, pray for us.
