Lord God

We put ourselves into Your hands and pray that you will bless us and our families during the wonderful months of summer. May we all help make our home a place of relaxation, joy, love, peace and safety. May we be generous and considerate, not thinking about ourselves, but helping others enjoy the blessings of summertime. We ask this through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen

Papal Visit to Ireland & World Meeting of Families 2018

Tickets to The Papal Visit to Ireland and World Meeting of Families 2018 We have had many enquiries about the WMOF events and in particular the Papal Mass. We have secured a block booking of 100 tickets to the Papal Mass in the Phoenix Park on Sunday 26th August. We have also booked 2 coaches (at cost priced per passenger) to bring us from St. Maur’s Church Car Park to our allocated parking bay for the Phoenix Park. Please be aware that this can be 3.5km to 5km walk from the Papal Altar (as we are travelling by coach it gives us access to the shortest distance from the event) There will be several rest points along the route (with hubs equipped with seating, water, toilets and shelter) which will be of assistance on the journey. Please e-mail your details to rushparishoffice@gmail.com. Subject to sufficient interest, once the 100 tickets are gone we will take a standby list to order more tickets and transport.
