Our Lady of Fieldstown

Our Lady of Fieldstown

Last year (2020) during Lockdown, it was suggested at a Parish Pastoral Council Meeting, that we should explore erecting a Shrine to Our Lady on the outside of the Church in Fieldstown.

Very quickly the idea took momentum, and through the stalwart work of Enda Fahy, and his son, Gavin, the base and arch of the Shrine were constructed. Margaret Fahy, Clare Murphy and Emily Halpin painted the wall, prepared the flowers and helped by Teresa Mulroy, our Sacristan, prepared the Shrine for the arrival of the new statue.

Eventually, after Mass on Sunday, 31st October, the shrine and statue were blessed and dedicated, and Mary Brennan penned a lovely poem for the occasion, from which we got the name, Our Lady of Fieldstown.

Thanks to everyone whose vision, hard work, and support brought this special project to completion. We now have a lovely shrine which we hope will inspire many to turn to Our Lady for help and protection – especially in these difficult times.

March 27th Government Announcement

We have al been shocked that we have reached this point in the Nation’s fight against Covid-19.

We, in the Parish, will follow the government’s advice, available here

This will have consequences for our Church buildings, and general operation of the parish. We are awaiting further direction from the Archbishop.

In the meantime, let us all stay safe and well, follow government advice, and continue to pray for one another.

The Journey Begins…

Thanks for joining me!

Welcome to the new Parish Website. It’s a work in progress so, please be patient with us, as we find new ways to share the Gospel message to all in our parish.

Hopefully this will be the first and best place to visit for the up-to-date information about all that is happening in our parish.

Unfortunately, we begin at a difficult time for our country and the wider world. As from 13th March, 2020, all public celebrations of Mass, and any non-essential parish gathering or function is suspended.

Let’s all ‘do our bit’ in the National effort to kerb the spread of this virus and keep as many people as possible – especially the most vulnerable – safe.

We will keep you up to date on this site, our Facebook Page, and Twitter feed, and we ask that you share the information especially with those who may not have access, or who may not be familiar with the technology.

Mass will be broadcast as per the schedule above, here;

Thank you, and may God bless you, your families, and all in our parish community.

Fr. Paddy
