We thank those of you who have already returned your Easter Dues. Dues envelopes may be collected from the church which is open each day from 10.30am – 5.30pm.

You can return your Dues Envelope to the Parish Office or the sacristy. Easter Dues may also be paid directly to the Diocese using the Donate button on the diocesan website.

To facilitate parishioners continued support for the Church through the Common Fund and Share Collections at this time of restricted access to churches, the diocese has arranged a Donate button on their website where donations to the Share and Offertory Collections can be made. Easter Dues can also be donated by this method of payment.


We offer our condolences to the families and friends of the late Fr. Pat Guckian, James Nolan & Fr. David Gaffney S.J.

During the last week a parishioner lost her rosary beads in the locality. The beads on this rosary are coloured black and have a shiny surface. The beads also have a medal of St. John XX111 attached to them.  Please call the parish office at 2196740 or 2680041 if you have found these beads.
