Ceremonies in our Parish
Recently we welcomed in Baptism: Mea Quinn Mannion and Carl Murray.
We ask Parishioners to pray for all children and their families.
We would like to congratulate Nuala Davis and Andrei Sendrea who were married in our Parish this weekend.
If you are planning a Wedding. Please contact the Parish Office and we will advise you of the procedures involved.
Contact the Parish Office to advise of your intention to marry, to make sure the Church is available for your preferred date. (Naturally the earlier you do this the better). At that time, we will advise on the next steps:
For couples who are getting married, you need to meet the priest of the parish you are residing in for the past six months, to complete all the necessary paperwork (Pre-Nuptial Enquiry Form) which is the responsibility of the Bride and Groom.
Please note that this must be done at least three months before the wedding.

We are delighted to invite our young parishioners from fourth to sixth class to become Altar Servers and we hope parents/grandparents will encourage them to join this wonderful group of young people who will assist with the celebration of Mass.
Altar serving is a lovely way for children to express their active participation in both the faith and the life of our parish.
Parents/guardians of these children will be fully involved in signing in and out all aspects of Altar serving. Also, our Parish Team will always adhere to Safeguarding guidelines in our Diocese.
Please chat to Fr. Brendan or contact Carol in the Parish office if you have any questions or would like to express an interest in becoming an Altar Server in our Parish.
As our students begin a new school year,
We pray that you will keep them in your care.
Send your Spirit to open their minds
to all that is true and beautiful and good.
Help them to see the gifts and talents
you have given them
and to use them well.
Help them to grow in knowledge
Help them to be kind to others
and lead others to be kind to them.
Give their teachers patience and understanding
and help them teach
what is just and true.
Send your angels to guide and guard all
children and to keep them from harm.
Open their young hearts to your presence
and enfold them
in your peace and protection.
Hold them in the palm of your hand
and bring them home safely at day’s end.
