Marino Parish is part of a Diocesan Grouping with the neighbouring parishes of Donnycarney and Fairview.

The idea of a Parish Grouping, (originally referred to as a “Cluster”), was proposed by Archbishop Diarmuid Martin, under a Pastoral Initiative called “Parishes working together for mission “in September 2004.

The purpose of the Grouping is to encourage co-operation between parishes, to begin to work together, seeing what can be best done on a broader level, responding to new challenges of evangelisation and faith formation, sharing resources and services, while always being sensitive to local traditions and needs.

The 3 parishes aim to meet at least twice a year to discuss items of common interest and organize parish activities where we may take the opportunity to get to know our neighbouring parishes better.

Such activities have included the “Eucharistic Congress Bell ceremony” ,and the summertime “Walk in the Light of the Lord”.

 

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.
