Summer 2023 – Mass Times
You might remember, we advised last summer, that it has been decided that for the month of July the Vigil Mass in St. Mary’s Church will be not take place. In August the Vigil Mass in St. Patrick’s Church will not take place.
This leaves one Vigil Mass in the Parish for these two months. With so many on holidays at that time, we feel there is no need for two Vigil masses.

Confirmation Ceremonies will take place in St. Mary’s Church, Julianstown on Monday, 27th February.
The Ceremony for candidates from St. Patrick’s School will take place at 10 am and the Ceremony for candidates from Whitecross School will take place at 12 pm.
Candidates will begin preparations for Sacrament of Reconciliation this week.
First Communion Ceremonies will take place on Saturday’s 22nd April (Whitecross NS) and 6th May (St. Patrick’s NS).
We ask parishioners to pray for these, and all children in our Parish.
