Our Parish seeks to live as a family – supporting one another, open to all comers, building a community where each person feels wanted and cared for. To make this happen, we will work to grow in holiness through prayer and service and we will try to show God’s love in our daily lives.

Work commenced on the reinstatement of the church heating system on Monday 10th January 2022. The contractor, engaged with the approval of the diocesan authority, is G & J Engineering Limited, Saggart, Co. Dublin.

It is expected that work will continue for the next 3 weeks or so.

While the work is in progress, there may be an inconvenience but appropriate adjustments will be made for the benefit of congregants. There will be daily Mass at 10.00 a.m. in the Church. (Monday to Saturday inclusive)


Funeral Masses (Monday to Saturday)

Will be held at 10.00 a.m. and will displace any other Mass Intentions booked for that time on the particular day/date of the funeral Mass. The intention will be transferred to another Mass at a more suitable time and date after making contact with the person who booked the Mass intention. This arrangement will continue until the church heating installation is completed after 3 / 4 weeks’ time the Church will be closed after Mass while work is going on. (Health & Safety)



Your attention is drawn to Synod prayers available on the tables near the church doors.  Please take a card home with you and if possible, pray it frequently for the success of the Synod. This prayer is the prayer that has been recited for the invocation of the Holy Spirit on Ecumenical Councils and Synods. It is centuries old.
