In recent months, parishioners added your names to the parish mailing list. Others among you have been in touch with your petitions for our Novena to Our Lady of Perpetual Help. 

Some other kind souls contacted us about a funeral Mass or some other ceremony which they viewed online. You have shared with us the consolation which the prayers and sense of being connected with our parish offered at that time. This sense of being connected has taken on a new currency and language as we work to drag the Corona virus from our communities during the coming weeks.

This week’s parish bulletin went to print before the revised Government measures were announced on Friday evening. As a result, some of the information below – especially in the yellow box – will need to be adjusted on Monday morning.

We will keep updates on this page in the coming days as we all learn to adjust to our new daily arrangements.

The stringent measures which have been put in place for families in Ireland will hopefully bring as many of our parishioners through the coming week, into Holy Week and into a newer appreciation of the gift of life this Easter.

Five points to conclude:

• Fathers Declan, Robert, Louis & Shane are keeping you all and your families in our daily prayers and Masses. Please keep us and our families in YOUR prayers.

• Every scheduled weekend and daily parish Mass (including anniversary Masses) will continue to be offered and can be viewed online via

• The Rosary will be prayed after the 9:30am Mass from Monday – Friday.

• St Mary’s is open every afternoon from 12:00noon – 6:00pm for private personal prayer. St Oliver’s is open every afternoon from 3:00pm – 6:00pm for private personal prayer.

7:30pm devotions from Sunday – Friday from St Mary’s will be broadcast on the webcam.
