For some years now the bell in the tower of Donnybrook Church has been silent. Investigations revealed that the bearings in the swing mechanism were badly worn and the electronic tinging mechanism was obsolete.
With this letter, I wish, as it were, to come into your homes to speak about an event which will take place at the Vatican this coming October. It is the Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, which is being convened to discuss the theme of “pastoral challenges to the family in the context of evangelization”.
This is our parish, our local Christian community. The Church of the Sacred Heart, in the heart of the Donnybrook village, is the focal point for our worshipping community.
Whether you have lived here for many years or have recently moved here does not matter; you are currently part of a welcoming and caring faith community.
The web site has been developed to present helpful information and a sense of belonging. It is also an invitation to become involved at some level in the life of the parish and to use your talents in the service of others.
Wishing you every blessing
Fr. Kevin Doran (Administrator)
