As we welcome our Parishioners back to celebrate Mass in the Church, we would like to assure everyone that reasonable precautions have been  implemented to reduce the risk for everyone attending the Church.  We would be grateful for your strict compliance with the social distancing rules.  

We would also ask that you take the time to use the  cleaning and disinfecting supplies as instructed.  

Rem: If you are ‘clinical risk’ of Covid-19 or have been advised to shield, please do not visit.




For this month of October as we pray the Rosary together in our homes we allow the repetition of   prayers and the handling of the beads to create a space to allow the Spirit to whisper to our hearts the wonder  and mystery of God’s love for us.

Remember : Sunday 11th Oct to join others in prayer as the Rosary on the Coast for Life and Faith Ireland takes place. See www.coastalrosaryireland.ie
