We regret that church services in St. John the Evangelist, Coolock and in All Saints’, Raheny have been postponed until further notice following advice relating to the Coronavirus-COVID 19.
A service of prayers and readings for use at home on Sundays, by individuals and families, will be distributed on-line each week through the parish network. We will continue to update our websites and face-book pages.
A volunteer network is also being established to support those who are self-isolating and those who feel particularly vulnerable.
In cases of pastoral emergency please contact the Parish Office Tel: 851 2459. If unattended please leave a message and your call will be returned as soon as possible.
We encourage everyone to observe official directions on social distancing and self-isolation in order to slow down the spread of the virus and to protect one another, especially the most vulnerable in our community.
We also encourage everyone to commit themselves to prayer at this challenging time.

IN THE TIME OF THE CORONAVIRUS COVID-19
Almighty and All-loving God
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
I pray to you through Christ the Healer
for those who suffer from the Coronavirus COVID-19
in Ireland and across the world.
I pray for all who reach out to those who mourn the loss
of each and every person who has died as a result of the disease.
Give wisdom to policymakers,
skill to researchers,
strength and safety to medical and emergency staff
and comfort to everyone in distress.
This I ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord
who showed compassion to the outcast,
acceptance to the rejected
and love to those to whom no love was shown.
