Update on Milltown Parish Project 200 Building Works


For our Sunday Masses, (including the 6pm Vigil Mass on Saturdays), i.e. Saturday 6.00pm and Sunday 10.00am, 11.30am and 5.30pm we will only have a part of the church available – the ‘altar’ side of the church. This means that our seating will be reduced to 200 (i.e. about half of present capacity).

Milltown Parish Project 200 Building Works:

Thank you to those who have donated to our Building Fund. Please note that the correct IBAN No. for donations is IE90ULSB98505006326277.

Please be advised that we hope to begin the works on the church in August.

During the building works the church will be closed for all religious services from Mondays to Fridays (at any time) and on Saturdays until the evening.

The main door of the church will be closed off.

Access to the church for Sunday Masses will be through our side door (the door nearest to the Parish Pastoral Centre).

There will be an extra safety exit through the ‘Sacristy door’.

The 10.00am Mass (Monday to Saturdays) will be celebrated in the Parish Pastoral Centre.

Baptisms will be celebrated in the Church on Sundays.

Since the church will be closed for all mornings – Mondays to Saturdays we will not be able to hold Funeral services here. Special arrangements are to be put in place.
