The Journey Begins…

Thanks for joining me!

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton

Welcome to the new Parish Website. It’s a work in progress so, please be patient with us, as we find new ways to share the Gospel message to all in our parish.

Hopefully this will be the first and best place to visit for the up-to-date information about all that is happening in our parish.

Unfortunately, we begin at a difficult time for our country and the wider world. As from 13th March, 2020, all public celebrations of Mass, and any non-essential parish gathering or function is suspended.

Let’s all ‘do our bit’ in the National effort to kerb the spread of this virus and keep as many people as possible – especially the most vulnerable – safe.

We will keep you up to date on this site, our Facebook Page, and Twitter feed, and we ask that you share the information especially with those who may not have access, or who may not be familiar with the technology.

Mass will be broadcast as per the schedule above, here;

Thank you, and may God bless you, your families, and all in our parish community.

Fr. Paddy
