Readers at Mass - call for new volunteers
It would be good to widen the pool of readers we have, as we rely too heavily on too few. Training will be offered for anyone who volunteers. If you are interested, please give your contact details to the sacristy or parish office (link). Young, old and newcomers to the parish, including from overseas, are all welcome.
Stained glass windows in Ballinteer Church - Artist Patrick Pollen
"I call you friends, because I have made known to you everything I have learned from my Father.
You did not choose me, no, I chose you; and I commissioned you to go out and to bear my fruit, fruit that will last; and then the Father will give you anything you ask him in my name.
My command to you is to love one another."
Gospel of St. John the Evangelist Ch 15 Vs 15-17
Inspired by these words in the Gospel of St. John the Evangelist, patron saint of our parish in Ballinteer, we strive to follow Jesus by:
Building a community which gives expression to our faith in Jesus where each person feels welcomed, accepted and valued in their own right.
Promoting a greater sense of togetherness and participation as we gather in our church.
Spreading this togetherness in church out into our parish
community in a way that is inclusive and all-embracing.
