Building Hope Task Force


Archbishop Farrell established the Building Hope Task Force to support parishes to undertake a radical renewal, looking to the future with creativity, and to enable the Archdiocese of Dublin to act now so as to be able to give effective witness in the future.  The Archbishop has initiated a conversation aimed at stimulating engagement across the whole Archdiocese.  As a missionary Church we need to be clear about what we are offering to the world, what we need to retain and build on so as to be bearers of hope, and what we must change or leave behind as we build a future of hope while slowly emerging from the Covid-19 crisis. 

The Task Force is seeking to engage with the whole diocesan family.  I am heartened by the sincere and thoughtful engagement with the process so far by priests, deacons, deaneries, parish pastoral councils, parish finance committees, school principals, teachers and BoM chairpersons and so many more.  I write to you today to ask you – the families in the parish – to be part of the Task Force’s work of Building Hope.  

I invite you to complete the online consultation by CLICKING HERE TO VISIT www.dublindiocese.ie where you will also find a special video message from the Archbishop.  The consultation form will remain available online until Sunday 18th July. 

On behalf of the Task Force I thank you sincerely for your support and encouragement and ask you to remember the work of the Task Force in your prayers.

Monsignor Ciarán O’Carroll (Chairperson of the Task Force)
