An Invitation to Families and Parishes

The Archdiocese of Dublin will provide some simple and achievable ideas for families and parishes starting in September 2021.

We are inviting families in our parishes to take part in various initiatives to support faith lived in the home and celebrated together in our parishes. The ‘family of families’ (parish) will be encouraged to reconnect the ‘holy’ to the home by suggesting rituals of faith in the home with parish rituals.

  • We want to encourage families to take part in various initiatives to support faith lived in the home and celebrated together in our parishes.
  • Our goal is to celebrate moments of hope and joy in family life, with resources suitable for learning, living and leading faith that are complementary to the way family is lived today.
  • To create moments of hope and joy in family life, with resources suitable for learning, living and leading faith that are complementary to the way family is lived today.

Connect the Kitchen Table to the Eucharistic Table

  • We are inviting Families to pray with our suggestions at your kitchen table.
  • We are inviting Parishes and Parish Liturgy Groups to create a Sacred Space in their Church – using the core items of the Kitchen Table and copy/print/replicate our monthly suggestions in order to inspire families to try some of these initiatives at home.

Join us for our Table Talk Conversations Series to demonstrate ways these resources can be used in the home and in parishes. More details to follow…
