I have been appointed to St. Sylvester’s Parish, Malahide since Sept 2017. http://malahideparish.ie/blog/
I have been involved in the local school particularly in regard to Second class and First Holy Communion preparation and 6th class who are preparing for Confirmation. Ive also had two sessions with each of the 3rd classes in the church prayer room – we have had some interesting conversations about the miracles and parables of Jesus and about Advent and the Jesse Tree. The Jesse Tree session sparked lots of questions about Old Testament figures – I was really challenged to remember the OT stories about Abraham, Jacob, Joseph and King David, and make them interesting and relevant!
I have also been very involved in the Christmas Eucharist celebrations both on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day – very busy but I enjoyed every minute of it.
I noticed that I did not post anything really, following my appointment to Marino parish two years ago! I hope to start again now and keep the blog up to date from Malahide!
