An Alpha Course is a chance to gather, share some food, connect, explore life and faith, – and it’s for anyone aged 18 and upwards. There’s one beginning in Our Lady of the Assumption Parish, at Pastoral Centre 199 Kylemore Road, Ballyfermot, on Tuesday January 24th, 7pm. ( We will explore a separate Youth Alpha at a later time.) It’s for people who are searching, asking hard questions: it’s for people with no faith, little faith, or much faith, people away from church for years – we will all be pilgrims together for the eleven Tuesdays. Want to know about Alpha? Just google it, or explore it on YouTube. If you think it might be for you, and want to take part, let your parish office know, and ask them to send on your name to Assumption. Or email: seamus.devittcssr@gmail.com. Bring a friend – but let us know.

The necessary restriction of public worship has profoundly affected the two essential Sunday Mass collections on which parish funds depend. The first collection—as you know—supports clergy ministering throughout the diocese as well as sick and retired priests and priests working in other ministries throughout the diocese.
