Fr. Dermot and Fr. Padraig are on retreat this week, being led by the Auxiliary Bishop of Los Angeles, Robert Barron. Please say a wee prayer for the both of them, indeed for all of the priests on retreat this week, and for Bishop Barron, as well.
There’s a few other priests you may recognise in the photo below, as well….e.g. Fr. Gerry (previously of Sandyford Parish) and Fr. Conleth (previously of Kilmacud Parish).
While you’re at it, why not listen to Bishop Barron’s excellent podcast on “The Heroic Priesthood”,
