Children’s Liturgy – Godly Play – meeting Sept. 12th.

Children’s Liturgy – Godly Play – meeting Sept. 12th.

We hope to start a children’s liturgy during the 12.30pm Mass on the first Sunday of each month, beginning on October 6th.

This liturgy will use Godly Play which some one of you will have experienced on our Marino Camino on Good Friday.

Godly Play is a creative approach to our faith which draws on the Montessori tradition and which is being used increasingly all over the world to nurture children’s faith and spirituality.

If you are interested in being involved in any way with this liturgy or are simply curious to see what happens at a Godly Play session there will be a taster evening in the church (Charlemont Meeting Room) at 8pm on Thursday September 12th.

Contact: Anne Dooley, Parish Catechist for further information (through the parish office/ sacristy on 8332772) or simply come along on the Sept 12th.

Public Masses Postponed

Mar 13, 2020

In order to prevent the spread of the Covid 19 Virus, after the 10.00am Mass today Friday 13th March there will be no further Public Masses in Marino Parish Church or in St. Joseph’s Rosmini Church until further notice. We have a duty of care to our parishioners and to all in our country to protect the health of people. The situation will be reviewed as new information becomes available. Catholics have been dispensed from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass for the duration of these special measures.
This is a time for us to pray for each other and for our country and our world as we face this crisis. There will be a Mass broadcast from Marino Church on the webcam on Sundays at 11.00am., on weekdays at 10.00am, and on St. Patrick’s day at 11.00 AM but there will be no congregation present. I encourage you to tune in to the web broadcast. Mass is  also broadcast daily on EWTN TV station. Please continue to pray and to look after your neighbours. The Church will be open during the Day for people to pray in.

 

PRAYER  FOR  SPIRITUAL  COMMUNION:

For those who cannot attend Mass and receive Holy Communion, the following prayer may be said:

My Jesus,
I believe that You
Are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things
And I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
Receive You sacramentally,
Come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace you as if You were already there
And unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
Amen.
