The Ascension of the Lord Sunday 29th May 2022

Prayer on the Feast of the Ascension

Lord Jesus, you became man

and came to live among us.

For love of us,

you suffered and died for us.

Because you are God,

you conquered death and rose on the third day.

Today you return to your Father, and our Father,

But you promised to remain with us

till the end of time,

And to send us the Holy Spirit.

We rejoice and thank you, Lord Jesus.

Come Holy Spirit, purify and transform us, Kindle within us the fire of your love.




Your prayers are requested for the repose of the soul of Sean Donnelly, Gormanston.


Please remember all bereaved in your prayers

Universal Synod 2021-2023

Following the engagement by so many people across the Diocese, the diocesan synthesis has been completed and will now be submitted to the National Steering Committee.  The synthesis can be viewed on from Wednesday 1st June.

Thanks to all who took part in the synodal conversations during Lent and to all who completed questionnaires and made submissions.  Thanks to all priests and facilitators who organised the synodal meetings in each deanery.

As we approach the Feast of Pentecost, let us ask the Holy Spirit: “Teach us the way we must go, and how we are to pursue it”.
