Parish Priest Appointment

Archbishop Martin has appointed our Parish Priest, Fr Joe Mullan to replace the Parish Priest of Rathgar effective from November 1st 2010. Fr Joe will be leaving Lusk parish after a four year term as our Parish Priest. We wish him well in his new ministry and ask God's blessing on him as he brings his pastoral leadership to a new community.

Archbishop Martin has appointed Fr Paul Hampson as Parish Priest of Lusk from Nov. 1st 2010. Fr Paul is currently a Priest Teacher in Tallaght Community School. We look forward to welcoming Fr Paul to the parish.

New Seminarians for Dublin: The Vocations Office kindly asks that you keep our 5 new seminarians in your prayers as they begin formation for the priesthood at this time. Four of our seminarians will begin formation in Maynooth this Sunday and a fifth will begin formation in a few weeks time in Valladolid in Spain. This new intake brings the number of seminarians in formation for the Dublin Diocese above 20 for the first time in over 15 years. This is especially encouraging given the challenging time we are living in. Please keep them in your prayers.
