On the Feast of the Presentation of our Lord in 1973, the Irish Bishops wrote to the Christian people of Ireland establishing Trócaire. As we mark 50 years of Trócaire, we mark 50 years of perseverance, courage, participation, accountability and solidarity. From supporting human rights defenders in Central America, to leading the relief effort in Vietnam following the war, to providing essential emergency assistance in the midst of crisis, Trócaire has been proud to work on behalf of the people of the island of Ireland in fighting injustice across the world. We thank God for our supporters and partners who empower us to do this vital work. We pray that the next fifty years will see all the people of the world working together for a more just world, and that the fruits of this work will be clear to see.

Souvenir Calendar of the Cathedral 2023 on sale at the Presbytery & Cathedral Bookshop.
50th Anniversary Prayer We pray for God’s blessing on the work of Trócaire. We pray that all people may continue to work together for the respect of our shared human dignity and shared human rights.

We pray for peace and may that peace be mine and yours, and with all people experiencing crises in our world. Amen

PARKING AROUND CATHEDRAL
We are asking people NOT TO PARK their cars on the avenues around the Cathedral while attending Mass or other Church ceremonies.
The emergency services need to have access to the Cathedral at all times. One never knows when the services of an Ambulance or Fire Brigade are required and access routes should not be blocked at any time.
Consideration for others is all we ask and leaving the avenues and all yellow boxes free at all times is essential.
