Discovering Christ: is a 7 week programme that that will run in Dunshaughlin Parish from Monday 13thOctober to Monday 1stDecember in the Pastoral Centre from 8pm to 9pm. It is an introduction to the Christian message of who Jesus is and why he died for our salvation. It presents the basic message of the “Good News” through DVD talks and group discussion over a cup of tea. The main aim of the course is to help participants enter or renew a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  To enrol contact 01-8259114. Admission is free.

October is Mission Month and next Sunday is Mission Sunday. There are approximately 1,500 Irish born missionaries working in more than 80 countries. They continue to spread the Gospel through their work, their deep commitment to the people they serve and their Faith. In essence, they lead by example and have helped to change, for the better, millions of lives all over the globe. It is fitting then that the theme for this years’ Mission Month of October is ‘That they may have life’ in all its richness and dignity - The richness of knowing the Gospel and Jesus Christ and the dignity of having food to eat, a roof to sleep under and work to go to. Through their work, our missionaries strive to make all this a reality for the people they serve. 
The Society for the Propagation of the Faith organises the Mission Sunday collection in all Churches nationwide, which this year takes place on the 19th October. We are invited to reflect on our call to bring Christ to others, while remembering to pray and to assist the young churches that they may have the spiritual and financial resources to grow and in turn announce the Good News.  For further information on the world of the Propagation of the Faith or to make a donation please visit

Pope Francis’ Prayer to the Holy Family for the Synod

Jesus, Mary and Joseph, in you we contemplate the splendour of true love, to you we turn with trust. 
Holy Family of Nazareth, grant that our families too may be places of communion and prayer,
authentic schools of the Gospel and small domestic Churches.

Holy Family of Nazareth, may families never again experience violence, rejection and division:
may all who have been hurt or scandalized find ready comfort and healing.                                                Holy Family of Nazareth, may the approaching Synod of Bishops make us once more mindful
of the sacredness and inviolability of the family, and its beauty in God’s plan.                                          Jesus, Mary and Joseph, graciously hear our prayer. ***************************************************************************************
