Annual collection for retired priests will take place on this weekend


The Diocese has to provide for our retired priests.  Funds to do this are raised in three ways:

Money was invested so the interest could be used. Unfortunately, the return on this investment has declined seriously over the past year and looks likely to remain low for the foreseeable future.

Parishes gave 5% of the door collection. Since 2001, this contribution has risen to 7.5%. 

Working priests give an annual contribution.


At present there are 27priests who are retired in the Diocese, many of them have given over 50 years of service to the people of the Diocese and where health allows continue to help

where possible in Pastoral ministry.

The LOGO for the World Meeting of Families

At the heart of the logo is the family. Family members are represented in different ages and roles while walking together in communion and love, helping one another through the journey of life. The cross and the semi-circle represent God’s love, flowing from the cross, embracing and supporting all the families of the world. No one is excluded, no one is left behind.


An International and Ecological Event

The map of the world shows that families from all around the globe will come to Ireland for what will be a truly international event. While we see only a glimpse of the continents, they represent the whole world: the common home of all families, entrusted to us by God.


The Church, the Family of Families

The red semicircle with the cross on the top echoes the logo of the Archdiocese of Dublin, which is the host diocese for WMOF2018. As well as representing God’s love, flowing from the cross, embracing all the families of the world, the semicircle and cross also represent the ‘dome’ of the Church, “a family of families, constantly enriched by the lives of all those domestic churches” (Pope Francis, The Joy of Love, n. 87).


Love is Patient

“Patience takes root when I recognize that other people also have a right to live in this world, just as they are.”  Pope Francis AM 92

Pope Francis To World Meeting of Families

The family, .., is the “yes” of God as Love. Only starting from love can the family manifest, spread and regenerate God’s love in the world. Without love, we cannot live as children of God, as couples, parents and brothers. I wish to underline how important it is for families to ask themselves often if they live based on love, for love and in love. In practice, this means giving oneself, forgiving, not losing patience, anticipating the other, respecting. How much better family life would be if every day we lived according to the words, “please”, “thank you” and “I’m sorry”.” 25/3/2017
