Neilstown Parish Church

The Combined Catholic Parishes of Clondalkin: The CCPC are putting on a number of Lenten talks each Thursday of Lent.  Each week will break open a particular theme around the ideas of rediscovering our faith, rekindling our hope, reconnecting with those who are different, reconciling with ourselves and with others and, of course, rejoicing in the Good News of God.  These talks aim to inspire and uplift us. They are an opportunity to take time out and reflect on some of the things that matter to our faith and in our community. Each speaker will bring the themes alive in and through their own work and context.

This great opportunity will take place over 5 Thursdays in Neilstown Parish Church from 7.30- 9.00pm. 

It begins on Thurs. 9th March where our first speaker Fr. Martin Bennet will explore what we believe and what it means to belong.

16th March Fr. Bryan Shortall on healing.

23rd March the Parish of the Travelling People on welcome and diversity.

30th March Gerard Gallagher on Forgiveness

6th of April Fr. Martin Bennet on Rejoicing
