The Season of Creation is marked throughout the Christian world from 1 September to 4 October (Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi) and celebrates the joy of creation as well as encouraging awareness-raising initiatives to protect the natural environment. Our church will be marking the season with prayer, reflection, and action.

Sunday Masses are at 11am and 6:15pm. Our website has the readings for each Sunday mass, along with hymn suggestions! This Sunday's readings are found here.

100% of the monies collected on Sundays is paid out to the Archdiocese. The Common Fund (blue bag) supports diocesan clergy salaries while the Share collection (red bag) supports poor parishes and other diocesan services. University Church welcomes donations to the parish; cash can be left in any shrine collection box or by using the parish tap machine in the back of church.

The Annual Crosscare Collection will take place at all Masses next weekend, 18 September. This year, Crosscare are looking for help for their Homeless Prevention and Food Poverty Support Services-both of which are coming under increasing demand from people struggling to find accommodation and families coping with increases in fuel prices and the cost of living. We would ask for your support for Crosscare in next weekend's second collection or by donatin online at

Our choirs are returning to both Sunday masses on the 18th of September! If you'd like to join the morning or evening choir please email Dominique at

The Faber Community, sponsored by the Jesuits in Ireland, are running a Kairos retreat for University students 4-6 November. The theme in a Kairos retreat is stepping back from the world to look at yourself, then look at who is God, who is Jesus, and what that means for you. It is about moving out into the world and applying the decisions you have made. The topics examined are, Who Am I? Who is Jesus in my Life? What does that mean for the Living of the Message? There are six talks spread over three days with times for small group discussion, prayer, questions and the Eucharist. You can sign up here and read more on the flyer below.
