Task Force under the title of “Building Hope”

The Building Hope Task Force aims to stimulate engagement with the whole diocesan family and shape an inclusive approach to a pastoral strategy appropriate to our times.  It is intended to support parish communities to undertake a radical renewal, looking to the future with creativity, enabling the Archdiocese of Dublin to act now, to give an effective service in the years ahead.

You and you family are invited to take part in this consultation.  Please watch the video from Archbishop Farrell and join with your family to pray/discuss the future of the Church together. 

It is hoped that you might nominate one member of your family to fill out the the contributions form on our website. this form will remain online until the 18th July 2021.

Sacramental Marriage Preparation Courses & Marriage and Relationship Counselling

ACCORD Dublin has  a new website for Sacramental Marriage Preparation Courses or for Marriage and Relationship Counselling. Please visit

New Pilgrim Path Website of the Week       

“Alone Together” is a website offering online resources to help people live through the coronavirus pandemic. The special quality of these resources is that they do not come from theories; they all come from those with experience of social distancing or isolation, people who have lived this reality – either intentionally like monks and nuns – or against their will, like hostages or the housebound.

The resources include three films to help with ‘Shaping the Day’; ‘Isolated’ – lived experiences of isolation and distancing; helpful reflections from the “Alone Together” community; and ‘How to’ – simple guidance from a range of isolation experts.

This hugely valuable website is introduced by Dom Christopher Jamison OSB, a Benedictine monk who became well-known through the BBC TV series The Monastery.

For these, and other wide ranging spiritual resources especially useful in times of pandemic, visit
