A word from Pope Francis about our care for God's Creation- Laudate Deum- You may notice that in the Church here, there are three boxes for collecting used stamps. The proceeds go to Irish peatland habitat and biodiversity conservation. In a recent letter, they said thank you for our support in 2023 the Irish Peatland Conservation council has raised €1,200.
The Family Mass each Sunday 12 Noon. Children are encouraged to take part through Drama, Prayer and Singing. All children are welcome to attend. Children preparing for First Holy Communion or who have recently received their First Holy Communion are particularly encouraged to attend.
