“Let us hasten to hand our resentment over to God…Let us begin now to prepare for the graces that we will need then, and, by pardoning those who hurt us, let us assure ourselves of the eternal mercy of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”-Bishop Jacques-Bénigne Bossuet, Meditations for Lent
We the Parish Team and the People of Rathfarnham Parish are committed to:
Having a meaningful personal relationship with Jesus Christ and to carrying on his mission in this place and time.
He is central to our lives.
Based on His teachings we endeavour to create a community where everybody is valued, appreciated and respected regardless of differences.
We wish to deepen our relationships with people of other faiths.
Mindful of the many blessings that God has given to our Community, we wish to reach out in a Spirit of Solidarity with those in our world who are less fortunate than ourselves.
We extend a very genuine welcome to all those who are alienated from our Church for whatever reason.
We acknowledge that through human weakness we do not always manage to live up to those ideals.
With God's help we must often make a fresh start.
