Carmelites announce decision to leave Knocklyon

As many of you know, the Council of the Carmelites in Ireland have informed the parish of their intention to return the care of the parish to the Archdiocese of Dublin from the 30th January 2022. In light of the depth of feelings generated throughout the parish as a consequence of this decision, the Parish Pastoral Council decided to petition the Council of the Carmelites, requesting that they reverse their decision and continue to maintain their presence in the parish.

 

Updated 31st July 2021

The Parish Pastoral Council has received a response from the Prior Provincial informing the parish that the decision to return the care of the parish to the Archdiocese from the 30th January 2022 remains unchanged. A notice was read at all masses over the weekend of the 31st July / 1st August. This notice together with the correspondence between the PPC and the Prior Provincial.

  4. Please continue to use the hand sanitisers available on entering and exiting the church and always wear a mask.
  5. There is no physical Sign of Peace until further notice.
  6. Communion will ONLY be given on the hand.

We continue to pray for all who are sick in our Parish, and we remember all who have died during the lockdown and the bereaved. I also would like to take this opportunity to Thank each and every one of you for your understanding and for your amazing support.
