Feast of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ: Sunday 19th June 2022

Father’s Day

God our Creator,

we give you thanks and praise for fathers,

young and old.

We pray for young fathers, newly embracing their vocation, may they find courage and perseverance to balance work,

family and faith in joy and sacrifice.

We pray for fathers around the world whose children are lost or suffering;

may they know that the God of compassion walks with them in their sorrow.

We pray for men who are not fathers, but still mentor and guide us with fatherly love and advice.

We remember Fathers, Grandfathers, and Great-grandfathers who are no longer with us but who live forever in our memory and nourish us with their love.  Amen.


Ceremonies in the Parish:  Baptism

Last weekend we welcomed in Baptism: Logan Duff, Aurora Grant & Reggie Ward.

May all baptised children know and love Jesus as their friend.


Vigil Mass Times

Parishioners are very welcome to contact us with their comments/suggestions on the following via e-mail at, or pop a note to the Parish Office.


Our parish vigil masses are celebrated at 6pm in St Patrick’s Church and at 7pm in St. Mary’s Church.


Mass times average between thirty to forty minutes. This leaves a very narrow window of safe travel time for the celebrant between the two churches.


Ideally a Celebrant likes to be in the church twenty minutes to half an hour before Mass begins. For the same reason, he needs some time after the Mass if a parishioner or family members of those for whom the mass was offered, wish to chat, if someone wants to get a Mass card or book an anniversary mass, or Baptism, or if someone asks for Confession or to have a quiet word, the time is simply not there at present.


In the Autumn, it is hoped to start folk groups at our Vigil masses, a factor which will also impact slightly on timings.


With these practicalities taken into consideration it is proposed to alter Vigil mass times. Suggestions very welcome to Fr. Brendan.


One suggestion is to have the Vigil masses at 5-45 pm in St. Patrick’s and 7 pm in St Mary’s.   We welcome your suggestions.


Whatever time is decided, it will be reviewed after six months.
