Working towards 2018, the 75th anniversary of our Parish.
Phase 1 of Maintenance and Development Works on our Church began on February 10th 2016. The closing dates for tenders was 12th August 2015. Tenders were submitted to our Architect, Ms. Carmel Brennan, Clonliffe Architects, Botanic Court, 30 - 32 Botnic Road, Glasnevin, Dublin 9. Approval for the successful tender was givenby the Diocesan Buildings and Finance Committees. Subsequent to this approval work could begin. The estimated schedule for completion is 21 weeks from the commencement date during which time access to the main church will be curtailed on weekdays. All weekday Masses and other Liturgies and Prayers except Funerals will be held in the Oratory. The building of the new Pastoral space required the removal of 10 rows of seats right across the back of the church in both the centre and side aisles. If you had a memorial plaque on one of these benches please contact the Parish Office about finding an alternative place in the church for your plaque if you haven't already done so.
Total Building Cost (including Maintenance Works, Decoration & Pastoral Space) €525,000 plus fees.
We acknowledge with thanks the wonderful financial support which our regular parishioners give each week towards the upkeep of the parish buildings through the envelope collection. The cost of the refurbishment will be funded primarily from the proceeds of the sale of the Presbyteries (300,000) combined with a recent legacy to the parish and also parish savings. At this stage it looks as though the completion of Phase 1 will come in slightly over budget and consequently we need to do some fundraising. Several parishioners have already given special contributions towards the refurbishment work for which we are most grateful.
If you are in a position to contribute towards the work, any donation however small will be gratefully received in the special REFURBISHMENT ENVELOPES which will are available in the church. Perhaps you could give an envelope to family members or neighbours who avail of the services of our church but who can’t or don’t attend or contribute regularly.
