Come, long-expected Jesus. Excite in me a wonder at the wisdom and power of Your Father and ours. Receive my prayer as part of my service of the Lord who enlists me in God's own work for justice.
Come, long-expected Jesus. Excite in me a hunger for peace: peace in the world, peace in my home, peace in myself.
Come, long-expected Jesus. Excite in me a joy responsive to the Father's joy. I seek His will so I can serve with gladness, singing and love.
Come, long-expected Jesus. Excite in me the joy and love and peace it is right to bring to the manger of my Lord. Raise in me, too, sober reverence for the God who acted there, hearty gratitude for the life begun there, and spirited resolution to serve the Father and Son.
I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, whose advent I hail. Amen
O come, o come Emmanuel to free your captive Israel. That mourns in lonely exile here, until the Son of God appear.
Rejoice! Rejoice! O Israel, to you shall come Emmanuel

Welcome as you browse our Parish Website. Whoever you are we hope your visit, however brief, will give you a glimpse of the life of our parish community. We aspire, with God's help, to live our lives rooted in the timeless values of the Gospel in a rapidly changing world, nourished in our spiritual lives by the grace of the Sacraments. As a parish community within the universal church, we try with God's help, to live individual lives and build a community rooted in Faith and Hope and Love. This is both a challenging and enriching call to live in love of God and of each other, in imitation of Christ, with a care which extends way beyond our parish boundaries.. If you're an involved parishioner we hope you'll find any information you need about the parish on this site. If you live in the Drimnagh area and don't have contact with the parish we hope some of what you read here will encourage you to make contact. If you're from Drimnagh and visiting the site from abroad welcome home. Let us know how you're getting on and be assured that we pray constantly in the church for all those from the parish who have spread their wings to live in the four corners of the earth. To everybody who visits this site may you be nourished by the Word of God which you can read here and be blessed according to your need at this time.
