Parish Notes, 27th May 2012
What we celebrate at Pentecost is the coming of the Advocate, the one who enables the apostles to be witnesses to Jesus claims in the world. Before this coming the apostles were incapable of acting as witnesses; they were frightened men who were too confused and hurt. With the help of the Spirit they were graced with a new courage and their courtroom became the market places of the world.

Parish Pilgrim Walk Wednesday, June 6th 2012:
As part of the range of activities put in place by Dublin Diocese to mark the 50th Eucharistic Congress, a pilgrim walk has been organised that involves visiting 7 city churches on any day between June 2nd –June 16th, 2012.
The walk is based on the model of the Camino de Santiago. A passport will be available to those who walk, and this passport can be stamped at each of the 7 churches visited by the pilgrim. The 7 churches involved are St. Ann’s Dawson St.; Whitefriar St.; Thomas St.; James’s St.; Church St.; Halston St. and The Pro Cathedral. The walk finishes with Mass at the Pro-Cathedral at 5.45pm.
It is proposed that a Glasthule parish pilgrim walk, as outlined above, will take place on Wednesday, June 6th. Those interested are asked to indicate their intention to join in the walk by leaving their name with the secretary in the Pastoral Centre by May 30th. The plan is to travel to the city by DART, leaving Glasthule station at 11.55am. Feel free to invite your friends to join with you if you are planning to participate.
Here you will find an interactive map of the "Dublin Camino"route.

The gift of knowledge: The story is told of a man who went to the priest and said, "Father, I want you to say a Mass for my dog." The priest was indignant. "What do you mean, say a Mass for your dog?" "It's my pet dog," said the man. "I loved that dog and I'd like you to offer a Mass for him." "We don't offer Masses for dogs here," the priest said. "You might try the church down the street. Ask them if they have a service for you." As the man was leaving, he said to the priest, "I really loved that dog. I was planning to give a five thousand-dollar stipend for the Mass." And the priest said, "Wait a minute! Why didn’t you tell me that your dog was Catholic?!"
