Archbishop Visit

Congratulations and blessings to the children attending St Clare’s Primary School and Harold’s Cross National School who received the Sacrament of Confirmation on Thursday 2nd March. Many thanks to their parents, teachers, the parish team and all who helped to make the day so special. We were excited to welcome Archbishop Diarmuid Martin as chief celebrant.

Our House of Brigid Fellows, Biz, Emma and Geoff, were thrilled to share in the joy of this sacrament with all the children. They visited the children in the schools and provided catechesis after Mass as part of our Confirmation preparation programme. Archbishop Martin was delighted with the results achieved.

Special thanks to our sacristan, Edith Compton, who masterminded the entire operation and still found time to put on her Benemerenti Medal! Master of Ceremonies to the Archbishop, Fr Damian McNeice, was very impressed at how well organised everything was.

How Far the Horizon
You want to travel?
You want to set foot on new lands, and walk along the world’s edge?
You want to live and to satisfy your thirst for more abundant life,
To fling wide the gates of your mind and be enriched by wisdom.
Travel where you wish to go, scale all the mountains and cross every ocean.
Remember this only:
The miles are ahead of you
The obstacles are within you.
Life is a voyage. Some people sit and watch, heedless of the heart’s urge and the spirit’s deepest need to launch out. Others drift here and there on the waves. They have chosen the safety of the shallows and turned their back on the promise of the deep. A sturdy few hammer their own craft together, cast off from the land and go. These know how to reach out and receive the gift of life.
