Harold Boys Graduation Mass
On Thursday next the sixth class boys in our parish school
assemble with their parents and teachers for a final
celebration of the Eucharist together before leaving Harold
Boys School. They have been an exceptionally good group
who will represent us well when they move on to a variety of
secondary schools. We wish them God’s blessings in
abundance and happiness in life ahead.

Oblate Mission Appeal
You may have noticed how much our church collections
dropped last week!. It reflects no doubt the Bank Holiday
but also the extraordinary generosity of Dalkey
parishioners to the Oblate Mission Appeal. Fr Paul Byrne, in
an appreciative and grateful letter of acknowledgment
indicated that he had already received the extraordinarily
generous sum of €5,136. If you were away last week and
wish to support the Oblate Mission around the world, you
may wish to avail of addressed envelopes and brochures Fr
Paul left in the porches.
