The Pope in your Pocket
New Pope App launched
Pope Francis has expressed his appreciation of the work being done by all the Vatican’s media services in enhancing their presence and participation in the digital world. The Pope’s words came as he was given a personal viewing of the new updated version of “The Pope App”, developed by the Pontifical Council for Social Communications.
The Pope App was released in the iTunes and Google Play stores. The app is free and can be downloaded on Apple and Android devices. Powered by News.va, it features the latest papal news and information as produced by the Vatican’s own media services – including Vatican Radio. Its new design simplifies access to content including live broadcasts from Vatican TV, videos of recent Papal events and allows people to be in ever closer contact with the Pope, his ministry and his message of God’s love.
The Dublin Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes will travel to Our Lady’s Shrine, as is usual each year, from Sunday7th to Friday 12th September 2014. They hope that about 175 sick pilgrims will travel, staying at the Accueil Notre Dame where they are very well looked after by a team of doctors, nurses, chaplains and lay helpers. If you know of someone in the community who might benefit from the pilgrimage please get in touch with Geraldine in the Lourdes Office as soon as possible ( phone 01 8376820) Geraldine will be able to give more information and send out an application form to either yourself or the person you have in mind. All applications must include a full medical report. The cost of the Pilgrimage for the care of each sick pilgrim is in excess of €1000 but because of the generosity of the people in the parishes, the subsidised fare is €460.00.
Confidential contact number of the local Conference of the
St. Vincent de Paul is 0861248957.
Wishing all parishioners safe travelling on our roads and a happy and fun-filled summer.
