When Mother Mary was in need she was told there was no room at the inn. Can you make a place for her?
We are looking for families to welcome the Pilgrim Statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary into their homes for one week and to pray the Holy Rosary at the statue each day. At the end of the week the statue will continue its pilgrimage to the next family. The statue will be handed into the care of the volunteer families at Sunday mass.
If your family would like to host Mother Mary for a week please get in touch with the parish office by phone to 01 457 2900 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact Deacon Norvil on (085) 7157887 or email email@example.com or contact Deacon Joe.
We can only imagine how happy Mother Mary will be to get your invitation to stay in your home and pray with your family.
Below you will find links for making online payments for after school religion classes for children attending non-Catholic schools in the parish. Please make sure to include your child / childrens name and school when you are making the payment.
There are three different links depending on the number of children in your family who are attending religion classes this year 2023-24.
- One child only
- Two children – please list both names on payment
- Three or more children – please list all children’s names on the payment
Thank you for your support and we hope that the seeds of faith of all the children will continue to grow and flourish.
The closing date for registering for religion classes for First Holy Communion and Confirmation was Friday 17th November.
Any children not registered for the sacraments will have to wait until 2025.
Altar Server Ministry
We are seeking recruits from 3rd Class to Second Year. Full training will be provided. We promise that anyone who joins the altar servers will have a safe and rewarding experience. It would be a great way of helping your parish community. You can contact the parish office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The RCIA or Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is a process through which non-baptized men and women enter the Catholic Church from 7 years old above. It includes several stages marked by study, prayer and rites at Mass. Participants in the RCIA are known as catechumens.
Under our Welcome menu you will find links for the Daily Mass Reading which updates every day as well as Sunday Mass Reading for the following Sunday’s mass. It is a great way to be able to read along during mass if you so wish or take time to reflect on the passages during the week and see what message they have for you. One quick note is that if it is a Sunday and you want to see the Gospel for today then click on the Daily Mass Reading link as the Sunday listing will be for the following week.
Sincere thanks to all who contribute financially to the Parish. We are very grateful to you for your loyal support.
We now have a DONATE button on the right of our Website where you can make a donation to the Parish or the Diocese. We would ask anyone is able to, to consider making a donation, as the Parish income is at an all-time low. Thank you so much for your generosity in these difficult times.
