To facilitate parishioners continued support for the Church through the Common Fund and Share Collections at this time of restricted access to churches, we have installed an option on our website where you can now make donations to both of these diocesan collections.


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.



We offer our condolences to the families and friends of the late Archdeacon Ciarán Canon Holahan, Fr. Tony O’ Farrell, CSSp and Mary Kelly.
