We hope that all our parishioners have had a peaceful and happy Christmas and that 2021 will bring hope for a better year ahead.
The church will remain open each day from about 11.00am to 3.00pm so that parishioners may call into the church to say a prayer, find a quiet space or light a candle.
We thank parishioners who have been kind enough to drop in their contributions to the First and Second Collections and to the Family Offering each week. It is greatly appreciated. We also draw parishioners’ attention to the ‘Donate’ button, which some parishioners may find an easier way to make their regular contributions, especially during this time of lock down.
Any household who is waiting for the 2021 box of envelopes to be delivered to your home please note that during this current time of lock down we are not in a position to deliver them and we hope to get them to you as soon as it is possible.

Our weekly Zoom meeting to read and reflect together on the readings for the following Sunday resumes this Thursday 14th January at 7.30pm.
No expertise is required, but all kinds of questions and insights arise from the shared reflection and discussion. Those of us who participate find that it prepares us to hear the Sunday Mass readings in a deeper way.
Everybody is welcome to join us any week. Just give the parish your email address, and a link to the meeting will be sent to you each week.
Fr. Richard Sheehy and Fr. Paddy Jones.
