Parish Liturgy Group
The Parish Liturgy Group is committed to improving the liturgical celebrations in the parish, especially the major feasts and seasons of the liturgical year. In addition, the group organises a Mass for the Sick around the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, Mass for the deceased in November, the Triduum to St Teresa, Harvest celebration & Mission Sunday. The Group also prepares the Easter Garden.
We try to involve more and more parishioners in these celebrations. This involves the decoration of the church, liaising with the choirs, Ministers of the Word, Ministers of the Eucharist and others. The Parish Liturgy Group meets at least six times a year at 6pm in the Parish House. The Group tries to attend in-service training offered by the Dublin Diocesan Liturgical Commission in the Spring and Autumn.
