St. Teresa’s Church is displaying rainbows created by local parishioners and friends to cheer up those who pass by during the COVID-19 restrictions.

The rainbow is a sign of beauty and peace that comes after a storm, it also reminds us of the story of Noah and the Ark and how God made a promise to protect his people always.

Please feel free to add your own Rainbow to the Railings by leaving it in the Church, dropping it into the parish house or hanging it up yourself as you pass by.  You can also email a photo of your picture to info@donoreavenueparish.ie or to pastoralsam@yahoo.ie or Facebook it or WhatsApp it to our Parish Pastoral Assistant Sam Byrne (number on request) and we can print it and hang it for you!

Please click here to see the invitation from Sam to send in more rainbows.

The pictures are generating a lot of discussion and people are stopping as they pass by to admire them and smile as they walk away…..RAINBOWS FOR RAILINGS is growing daily…..

The parish team has now created and hang something for the #RainbowsforRailings initiative…… It only felt right that our creation should be a thank you to all who participated to make it such a success…..to the people of the parish, to the those who go to work everyday and who keep our country going…… To everyone who has made this so much fun and gotten involved from near and far……And it’s not over yet….. Look at all the space to fill around our banner so that we are ‘part’ of the display rather than a piece out there on our own….. Keep them coming in folks!!
