Third Sunday of Easter Sunday 1st May 2022


Jesus is still calling priests, he needs you to say yes to his call. Be a priest and find joy, bring people to God and let Jesus work through you. “If you feel called to be a priest, open your heart to Jesus, follow the Lord and do not be afraid. Jesus needs priests today more than ever.    For more information please contact:  Fr Tony Gonoude on 044-9373923.




Your prayers are requested for the repose of the soul of Jackie Tallon.

Please remember all bereaved in your prayers
