Parish Mission Statement
The parishioners of Our Lady of Consolation Church, Donnycarney, empowered by the Holy Spirit aim to nourish our Christian Community of Faith, Hope and Love, caring for all, reaching out especially to the young parishioners and all those new to our parish.
In the parish of Donnycarney the priests and people work together to bring the Good News of the Gospel to the people and families of our parish, through spiritual enhancement, creating and sustaining community and a sense of belonging. Without the generosity of so many people who give so much of themselves and their time, voluntarily, to the service of the Church and parish we could not function properly.
Through baptism we are all called to witness to Christ and help to make the Kingdom of God a reality here on earth. The living out of that calling is very much in evidence in our parish through the involvement of so many people in the work of the parish. While appreciating the great work done in close collaboration with the priests of the parish by the Pastoral Council, the Finance Committee and the Parish Committee, we also wish to acknowledge all those who offer their gifts and talents to help with the effective running of the parish.
In particular we thank our collectors and counting teams; our Eucharistic Ministers; our Ministers of the Word; our Baptism Team; St Marthas Guild; our Flower Arrangers; our Sacristans; our Shop Staff; our Organists, and Choirs, who do so much to enhance the Liturgy. We have two choirs in the parish, Without the generous service of all those involved the parish would be greatly impoverished; Go raibh mile maith agaibh.
Thanks to all who are involved in the life of our parish in so many ways (some public and many others behind the scenes). The involvements of so many are needed to continue the vibrant activity of our parish. Please consider offering your time and talents, and chat with Fr. Peter if you would like to find out more on any of the above.
