Parishes in Partnership
In his Pastoral letter for Advent 2022 the Archbishop Dermot Farrell said in relation to the Building Hope initiative: I am now making a further response to you, having listened carefully to your proposals for partnerships. Following careful analysis and further dialogue, I am writing to each parish to confirm the partnership arrangements through which I am asking you to realign your efforts and energies to suit the times in which we live.
Our parish of Kilnamanagh and Castleview are now in partnership with:
St. Mary’s Parish, Tallaght Village (Dominican Priory)
St. Dominic’s Parish, St. Dominic’s Road, Tallaght
St. Aengus Parish, Balrothery, Tallaght
For Mass Times for all the Parishes in Partnership please

Our pilgrimage to Glendalough in early March was a huge success. Pictured on the left are attendees outside God’s Cottage in Glendalough Prayer Centre. There was a celebration of the Eucharist by Fr Frank in the chapel of God’s Cottage. We are indebted to Imelda of God’s Cottage for her inspiring guided tour of the former monastic settlement and to Sr Anne Neylon for her spiritual reflection on the life and times of St. Kevin.
