It is a multi-task ministry also maintaining the Holy Water fonts, candles. Anyone interested in joining may contact Teresa Buggy or the sacristy.

Repository Shop

The Repository shop can be accessed from the church porch, and is open before and after week day and weekend Masses for the sale of religious items. Giving someone a Christian gift is a simple way of spreading the faith, providing comfort at a difficult time and sharing in joy. Among the stock available are cards, rosaries, crucifixes, Bibles, candles, medals, statuettes and Catholic papers and periodicals. The "Shop" as it's affectionately called is managed by Aileen Keighery and a group of dedicated volunteers.

Young Adult Faith and Friendship Group

Our young adult faith and friendship group "does exactly what it says on the tin". It encourages faith and friendship between young adults (18-30years). They meet on Tuesday nights in the church sacristy at 8.00pm and discuss the readings from the next Sunday's Mass. Come along and meet new friends. During Lent and Advent they organize a series of Bible Lectures. For Lent, next February will begin a series of lectures by Fr. Kieran O' Mahony. The course begins on Thursday 12th February and continues for six weeks. All are welcome and admission is free.

St. Joseph's Young Priest Society

A society of lay people who pray and work to foster and support vocations to the priesthood and religious life. Meets monthly and have a small table for donations inside the church on the first Sunday of each month.

Society of St Vincent de Paul Conference (Donnycarney)

Our Lady of Consolation Conference of the Society has been serving the people of Donnycarney for over forty years. Many of the families who were helped in the early years are now contributors when means allow. The people and especially the Massgoers of Donnycarney have supported the work of the volunteers in the Society over many years and continue to do so to this day. Their generosity has been exceptional. Over the past forty years the needs of families have changed little ...food, heat, short term relief and a caring ear. Unfortunately the circumstances and context of these needs are now much broader due to the high expectations and the demands of modern living.

Much of our work now involves new Irish, single parent and separated families as well as caring for families who for some reason need our help. Thanks to the generosity of our benefactors.
