Third Sunday of Easter 14th April 2024

The Building Hope Prayer


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 prayer through Christ Our Lord, Amen.


Trócaire Boxes

Trócaire boxes can be returned to the Parish Office, during office hours, or to the church during Mass times only.  For security, please do not leave boxes unattended.


Sacraments in our Parish


First Communion

First Communion Ceremonies in our Parish will take place next Saturday, 20th April for children from Whitecross NS

Ceremony for children from St. Patrick’s NS Saturday, will take place on Saturday, 27th April.  Both Ceremonies will take place at 10 am in St. Mary’s Church, Julianstown.


Tickets have been allocated for the Ceremonies and these will be distributed to children from Whitecross School during the week.


Once again, we would like to say, the ticket system is not ideal, however, due to the large numbers for First Communion and the space available in our Church, this is our best option for all.


Sincere thanks to Diarmuid Everard, of Printcom for sponsoring the Tickets, and also the Easter Passports.




Our next Parish Baptismal Preparation meeting will take place on Tuesday, 7th May at 7:30 pm in our Parish Pastoral Centre, Stamullen.


Please contact our parish office if you would like to register your child for Baptism.
