Parish Mission Statement
St. Columba’s parish is a vibrant and welcoming community of faith, continuing to give practical witness to the Good News of Christ, through worship and reflection, and through Christian service to the community.
Welcome to the website of the parish of St Columba, Iona Road, Dublin.The parish of St. Columba is part of the Glasnevin Grouping of Parishes with the parishes of : Our Lady of Dolours, Glasnevin, Corpus Christi, Drumcondra, Our Mother of Divine Grace, Ballygall Road East, Our Lady of Victories, Ballymun Road, in the Archdiocese of Dublin.
Confirmation has been received that, in the light of the very worrying increase in infection in the Dublin area, the entire County Dublin will be placed on Level 3 of the Government’s COVID-19 Resilience and National Recovery Plan, beginning at midnight Friday, 18th Sept. and for at least a three-week period.
The norms apply to all places of worship within County Dublin, including those of religious houses that are generally open to the public.
Places of worship will have to remain closed from midnight, except for private prayer, weddings and funerals. Attendance at wedding liturgies and funerals would be limited to 25.
Religious services can be transmitted online with no public presence.
We must pray intensely that we will be able to return to public worship at the earliest possible date.
Confirmation and First Communion services will therefore not be possible during this period and will have to be postponed.
I am aware of the fact that these measures will be painful for many. The decisions are made to respond in the best possible way to an unforeseen and complex situation.
Today, we find ourselves sadly in that situation once again and we are called to make painful sacrifice for the common good. I appeal to all to enter into this difficult period with that spirit.
As you are aware the annual collection for Crosscare was planned to take place over this weekend. Envelopes will be available if you are attending the church for private prayer. Also donations can be made online at www.crosscare.ie
Mass will continue to be streamed via the webcam facility which can be accessed via the parish website (www.ionaroadparish.ie) at 6.00pm (vigil) on Saturday and 11.00am each Sunday. Daily mass also can be accessed via the parish website webcam at 10.30am each day except Tuesday and Saturdays.
