Please be aware that baptism will now be on First Saturday of every month at 11:30am.
MARRIAGE IN CHURCH. Couples thinking of getting married later this year are asked to register in good time. Make an appointment to see Fr. Kevin and he will help you from there. Couples planning to marry in another parish or even outside the country should realise that the process properly begins here.

CATHOLIC NEWSPAPERS FOR SALE: A range of Catholic newspapers are on sale at the back of church: The Catholic Herald, The Universe, Ireland's Own, The Irish Post, The Catholic Times and The Sacred Heart Messenger.

The price of each paper is shown on the front page. Please be sure to put your payment in the box which is clearly labelled next to the papers. We will be closely monitoring sales over the next few months to guage demand for these titles.
