BUILDING HOPE TASK FORCE – Invitation to Parishioners
Archbishop Farrell has set up a Task Force under the title of Building Hope. The Task Force aims to stimulate engagement with the whole diocesan family and shape an inclusive approach to a pastoral strategy appropriate to our times. It is intended to support parish communities to undertake a radical renewal, looking to the future with creativity, enabling the Archdiocese of Dublin to act now, so as to give effective witness and service in the years ahead.
You are invited to take part in this consultation. There is a video, a prayer and a form on the www.dublindiocese.ie website. Please watch the video from the Archbishop and join with your family to pray and to discuss the future of the Church together. It is hoped that you might nominate one member of your family to return to the website and make a
contribution by filling out the form.
The consultation form will remain online until the 18th July 2021.
Pray, have the conversation and fill in the form.
TASK FORCE PRAYER
Pilgrim God, we give you thanks and praise.
You constantly journey with us
even in our darkness and doubts.
We seek your way of loving kindness to walk together as one family.
Open our eyes to recognise you
in the faces of one another,
in the breaking of bread
and in the splendour of your creation.
May the Risen Christ
sow seeds of hope and new life deep within us.
May our hearts and minds be filled
with your Word
bringing forth truth, justice and peace.
May the Holy Spirit working in and through us,
do much more than we can dare to imagine
as we live out our baptismal calling in humble and loving service.
We make this prayer through Christ Our Lord Amen.
St Laurence O’ Toole: pray for us.
St Brigid: pray for us.
