Living the Joy of the Gospel

LivingtheJoyoftheGospelLiving the Joy of the Gospel, is a Diocesan initiative, aims to support and sustain the three pillars of Catholic Parish life, the Church and gathering places, lay involvement in evangelisation, ministry and faith development and ongoing support for priests in active ministry.

Today we launch our parish plans under the Living the Joy of the Gospel initiative. There are four elements to our plans for Living the Joy of the Gospel in Donnybrook, the parish centre, car parking, the Church and contributing to a fund for the provision of a parish pastoral worker. We now need to raise €2.5M. Donnybrook will be using the funds we raise exclusively for this purpose. We also need to continue our support for the day to day running expenses of the parish.

Welcome To Donnybrook Parish

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
Mgr Lorcan O’Brien (Administrator)

Saint Of The Day

  • Saint Thomas The Apostle
    St. Thomas was called to be one of the twelve Apostles. He was a dedicated but impetuous follower of Christ. Tradition says that at the dispersal of the Apostles after Pentecost this saint was sent to evangelize the Parthians, Medes, and Persians; he ultimately reached India, carrying the Faith to the Malabar coast, which still boasts a large native population calling themselves "Christians of St. Thomas."
