Love Your Enemy?

 

In the Gospel of Matthew (5:38-48), Jesus contrasts what his disciples had heard in the past with what they must practice as his followers. “You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye.’ But I say to you offer no resistance to one who is evil,” he says. “You have heard that it

About Our Church

Welcome to Our Parish

We are delighted you have visited our parish website. Do make yourself known to one of the Priests if you are new visiting the Parish either during Mass times or call to the office.

Killinarden Parish  was constituted in 1977 from Springfield. The parish is in the  pastoral care of Missionaries of the Sacred Heart (MSC)  since July 1984. The Church of the Sacred Heart was opened on 10th December 1989.

History of Killinarden      

The first pilgrims took up residence in early 1977 in the Killinarden Estate area which was the first section to be finished with 342 new houses.

The people who moved into Killinarden came mainly from private rented accommodation in or near the city and had young families. The open spaces of Killinarden just under the foothills of the beautiful Dublin Mountains were a very different living experience for many of these people.  

There was no shops, no churches, no schools, no doctor’s surgeries, no hospitals, and no community buildings.

The area was essentially to be a building site for the next 6yrs until 1982 when the rest of the 1,800 houses were completed. The population of Killinarden would eventually reach over 7,000 with the completion of these houses, the size of many any Irish town. Today the population is over 10,000. With six schools, a church, local shops, health centre and many businesses in the local area has helped to transform Killinarden and give social improvements and hundreds of local jobs.

We in Killinarden Parish are the sponsors of a community employment project that employs 39 participants. The Project provides a very valuable resource to all the local schools, the parish and community organisations in Killinarden who benefit from a service that enhances the areas stability, deters vandalism and protects the physical infrastructure in the area. The project enables local people to have opportunities for social inclusion and facilitates lifelong learning opportunities

The Other Side of Christmas

You may have heard that the giant, online retailer Amazon is experimenting with the idea of delivering packages in certain areas using drones — you know those strange, remote controlled aircraft that are deployed these days for everything from aerial travel photography, to police work, even pizza delivery!
