Sr Mary John of the Heart of Jesus

Wednesday 25th March, feast of the Annunciation, is the first anniversary of our dear Sr Mary John of the Heart of Jesus (Maureen Twomey). She was 90 years old when she flew into the arms of Jesus, after a very difficult final few weeks. Please pray for her happy repose, and for the comfort of her family at this time. History Corner You can find two “foundation stones” outside the front of our monastery - one on the gable wall of the chapel and one on the new building. The foundation stone for the chapel was laid by His Grace Dr. William Walsh, Archbishop of Dublin, on 4th June 1896. Fr John Grennan, Carmelite Provincial, laid the foundation stone of the new monastery on 1st October 2003. Next time you visit us, why not have a look for the two stones!!

Corona Virus Global Pandemic - updated

The Sisters here at Kilmacud Carmel are sharing very much in the concerns and anxieties of the whole world during the current COVID-19 pandemic. We are striving to keep up to date with the advice and directions of civil and Church authorities. Our concern is not only for ourselves but for our families, friends, helpers, and the many wonderful people who join us regularly for the celebration of the Eucharist or who call to us for various reasons. Sadly we have had to restrict our contacts with you all for the moment, but be assured that although physically separated, you are remembered in our prayers each day, and we entrust the whole world to God’s mercy for healing, comfort and an end to this pandemic very soon. We ask for God’s protection and strength for all “front-line” workers. We pray for those searching for a suitable vaccine. May the Spirit guide their important work. Mary, Queen of Carmel, pray for us. Pray with us, but remember social distancing!! Archbishop Diarmuid Martin requested that whilst no public Masses are being offered, churches should be open for some time each day to allow a space for quiet and prayer to those who wish to visit. This is provided that social distancing is observed and that the area is cleaned regularly. Our chapel will be open from 4.30pm - 6.00pm each day. When you visit, please observe the guidelines displayed, use the hand sanitiser and maintain suitable distance from others who may be in the chapel. Thank you. Prayer Resources during the coronavirus pandemic The Catholic Bishops of Ireland have made available some Prayer Resources in English and Irish for use by the faithful during the coronavirus pandemic.

Pope Francis’s Prayer to Mary

during Coronavirus Pandemic

O Mary, you always shine on our path as a sign of salvation and of hope. We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who at the cross took part in Jesus’ pain, keeping your faith firm. You, Salvation of Your People, know what we need, and we are sure you will provide so that, as in Cana of Galilee, we may return to joy and to feasting after this time of trial. Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform to the will of the Father and to do as we are told by Jesus, who has taken upon himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows to lead us, through the cross, to the joy of the resurrection. Amen. Under your protection, we seek refuge, Holy Mother of God. Do not disdain the entreaties of we who are in trial, but deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.
