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.

IMPORTANT Garda Vetting Announcement

If you have recently completed a Garda vetting form but have not received or replied to an email from the National Vetting Bureau, please contact the Pastoral Area Office.  (The email may have found its way into your Junk or Spam box)  It is vitally important that the Vetting process is completed as soon as possible.  Please let us know if you need any help with this.
