From Monday 10th May 2021, and for the foreseeable future, the time of the week day mass is changed from 9:00 am to 10:00 am.
Our churches will be reopening on Monday 10th May 2021 for mass, however, we would ask all those attending to respect the Covid-19 guidelines and directions of the stewards.
Due to COVID-19 we are unable to say when these sacraments will take place, however, we are allowing parents/guardians register their children for the sacraments. Please check under the Sacrament tab.
PLEASE NOTE registrations for Confirmation and First Communion will be closing on 30th April 2021.

Due to Covid-19 and until further notice there will be no Baptisms in this parish.
Please find below the link to a recorded message by Archbishop Dermot Farrell to the parents of children due to receive the sacraments of First Holy Communion and Confirmation this year. It expresses to them and to parish communities the broad approach which is being taken: there is no pressure to celebrate the sacraments by any given deadline; we should use this time of uncertainty to support families to nurture their children as they journey towards the sacraments whenever they can be safely celebrated; and we are creating supports and resources for parishes to draw on in their accompaniment of families.’
Dermot McCarthy (on behalf of the Diocesan Sacraments Implementation Group)
“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”“ Isaiah 52.7
