A novena in Honour of St Vincent Pallotti, founder of the Irish Pallottine Fathers, In St Anne’s Parish, Shankill

Thursday, January 13th, 2011

St Vincent Pallotti was born in Rome in 1795. Even from a very early age people called him a ‘Little Saint’. He became a Doctor of Theology and confessor to the Pope and spiritual director of the Roman Seminary, The Irish College and the College for the Spread of the Faith. His two great loves were The Missions and the Apostolate of the Laity.

In 1835 he founded the Society of the Catholic Apostolate, a group which included lay people as well as clergy, and insisted that every baptized person is called to be an Apostle. Almost a century later Pope Pius XI commented that the Society had come close to the ideal and reality of modern Catholic Action.

St Vincent died in 1850 aged just 55 years. A century later he was declared Blessed by Pope Pius XII and on January 22nd 1963 he was declared Saint by Pope John 23rd, with January 22nd being designated his feast day.

A novena in Honour of St Vincent Pallotti, founder of the Irish Pallottine Fathers, will take place In St Anne’s Parish Shankill Co Dublin beginning on Friday 14th January 2011.

The novena prayers will be included in the daily masses at 10am and 7.30pm. The Novena may be followed daily online at . More information is available on and

The First Sunday of Advent and the snow is on the ground

Sunday, November 28th, 2010

The first Sunday of advent, the sun is out and the snow is on the ground. This is a perfect day for taking some of those Christmas scene photos.

Unfortunately the ice and snow also make it more difficult for all of us to travel even short distances. Yesterday I saw a young couple stop their car and offer a lift to an older woman who was walking in the middle of the road as it was too difficult to use her walker on the frozen footpaths. It reminded me that we need to make a special effort to ensure that our close neighbours are not isolated this winter.

The ChurchServices.Tv service is designed to help people at home remain part of their local Christian community in Ireland (and soon the UK) by allowing everybody to take part in Masses, Services and Prayers from the comfort of their own homes. It does not nor is meant to replace human contact. So maybe this Advent we all should all look out for each other and make sure that no one is feeling isolated or lonely.


If anybody has a community scheme that enables the housebound feel less isolated this winter please contact me at and I will consider adding you to this blog.
