Back to School Time!!! 

We wish all who are involved in our schools the very best over the coming academic year. We pray for God’s special blessing upon our Boards of Management, principals, teachers, staff and students. 


Thank You

Thank you to Saint Joseph’s Secondary School students for stewarding the Papal Mass, to the Choirs of Rush for singing at the event, to the Ministers of Eucharist for offering their services, to the Parish Representatives who organised the tickets and coaches, to all those who decorated the grounds and church for the event, to all those who took part in the special time of Adoration for God’s Blessing of the Gathering. Well done and thanks to one and all.

Falling Fruit Ireland – Food Sharing Project is a project to harvest the seasonal glut of local fruit (apples, pears, plums, nuts, etc.) in Dublin and to direct it to charities that cater for those in need. In 2018, we also aim to collect surplus vegetables from the grower’s fields – gleaning for charities! This initiative acts as a helpful service to households who have fruit going to waste in their gardens. It also serves the community by directing the surplus fruit to local charities, where possible.
