Diocesan Synodal Pathway.png

As we begin our journey as a Diocese on the synodol pathway, there is a useful guide for us called Simply Synod. This resource is based on the official synod documents from the Vatican in preparation for the universal Synod in 2023. 

It is a useful guide full of information and ideas to help us become a more synodol church and to truly experience synodality. To view this resources please click on the image or the button below.

COVID Update.jpg

For further details on the Government's

COVID-19 Resilience and National Recovery Plan

please CLICK on the image.

The Government has begun the next phase of easing restrictions.  Whilst numbers in church can be up to 50% of capacity, the size of our churches in addition to maintaining social distancing, means that our numbers are still very reduced. 

Therefore, the following conditions are in place:

*  MAXIMUM of 50% capacity of the church building

*  Social distancing of 2m

*  Sanitising hands on entry and exit

*  Wearing face masks (which cover the NOSE AND MOUTH) while inside

​*  Following the direction of the Stewards

*  Church doors will also need to be left open to provide ventilation.


Can you spare some time to help us keep our churches clean and sanitised?


Could you be part of our stewarding team when we can gather for Mass?


Perhaps you know someone who can?


We are looking for people to join our wonderful teams, to help keep our churches open.


In order for us to do this safely we need people to get involved.  If you have some time to spare and can offer us assistance please contact the Pastoral Area Office.

Our churches are open for times of private prayer during the week.  You are welcome to call in!  We kindly ask that you wear a face mask at all times in the church, use the hand sanitiser as you enter and leave, stay within the designated area and avoid using the benches,  and try to keep your visit as short as possible.  If you feel unwell or have any of the COVID symptoms we ask you to please stay at home.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is a healing remedy for our sins, presented to God in the presence of the priest. Although serious matters should be brought before the priest when available, our lesser sins are healed through the celebration of Mass or with sincere contrition & good works.

  • Fr. Derek will provide the (appropriately socially distant) Sacrament of Penance & Reconciliation by appointment,

or as requested anytime by the homebound, the sick & the dying.

Please contact the Pastoral Area Office for all appointments, emergencies, & special needs (01 8354138 / 087 1911902).


We are aware that these are very difficult and worrying times for all of us.  Our Parish income has suffered as a result of the imposed restrictions due to the Coronavirus.  If you are able to offer some regular financial support, via Standing Order, we would be most grateful.  

Those who very kindly contribute to the Family Offering via the parish envelopes may wish to continue using the envelopes by collecting them at home and bringing them back to the parish when it is safe to do so.  Alternatively, you may wish to consider replacing your envelope donation to contribute with a standing order.

Standing Order Forms can be downloaded and returned to the Pastoral Area Office.  Many thanks.
