Mass Times


We were delighted to have received very positive feedback regarding our Summer mass schedule.


We advised recently that at Diocesan level discussions have been happening and due to the increasing workload, reduction of priests, and reductions in attendance following COVID, we expect in the near future to be advised that all parishes should reduce their Mass timetable.


Realistically in our parish, we don’t have need for four masses at the weekend.  When our Churches are full, the celebration of Mass is a far more enriching experience for all.


We invite parishioners to share their suggestions regarding reduction of Mass times in our Parish to our Parish office via e-mail to or call 01-8412647.
