During Level 5 restrictions:
Funeral Mass in Ayrfield is at 10 am unless otherwise notified.

In order to comply with legislation, attendance at funeral masses is in accordance with Goverment guidelines and Dublin Diocesan Directive. We pray for all recently deceased, their family and friends.

                   
            May He support us all the day long,
            till the shades lengthen and the evening comes,
            and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over,
            and our work is done.
            Then in His mercy may He give us a safe lodging,
            and a holy rest and peace at the last.

Ayrwaves

Due to restrictions imposed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic it is not possible to deliver
hard copies of Ayrwaves to each household in the parish, as has been the practice up to now.
On behalf of the Ayrwaves Team, we would like to thank St. Paul’s parish for coming to our assistance.
in making Ayrwaves available on-line.

Ayrwaves Online

Ayrwaves includes : Community activity updates. A virtual gallery for artists based in Ayrfield (at present 35 exhibits on view). Archive containing all issues of Ayrwaves for the past 12 years. An anthology of contributions to Ayrwaves by our former colleague Jimmy Kelly, who sadly passed away this year. Pieces already submitted by people in Ayrwaves on the impact of the Pandemic. And lots more.


Outdoor Family Offering - Envelope Collections

As the health and safety of our volunteers is of utmost importance, with this in mind, we are suspending the collection of the outdoor family offering envelopes until further notice.

We thank all our contributors & collectors for their understanding & continued support.



A Prayer in the Time of the Coronavirus

Almighty and All–loving God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
we pray to you through Christ the Healer
for those who suffer from the Coronavirus Covid–19
in Ireland and across the world.

We pray too for all who reach out to those who mourn the loss
of each and every person who has died as a result of contracting the disease.

Give wisdom to policymakers,
skill to healthcare professionals and researchers,
comfort to everyone in distress
and a sense of calm to us all in these days of uncertainty and distress.

This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord
who showed compassion to the outcast,
acceptance to the rejected
and love to those to whom no love was shown.

Amen.

Archbishop Michael Jackson
Dublin & Glendalough

General Data Protection Regulation - “GDPR”


A new European Data Protection law, the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), was introduced on 25 May 2018. This new law applies to any organisation, including our parish that manages and processes people’s personal information.

We are now working on ways of ensuring that what we do with your information is compliant with this new law. It is a work in progress and we will keep you informed through the parish website and in the newsletter as policies are put in place. If you have any questions about this please do not hesitate to contact the parish office.
