Service of Reconciliation and Confessions will take place on Sunday 17th December at 6.00pm.

Children’s Liturgy:  Families with young children (of all ages) are invited to a special telling of the Nativity Story by Fr. Stephen at the Crib in the church after 12 o’clock Mass on Sunday 17th December.  Children are encouraged to dress as a character from the story if they wish.  We would also love if the children could bring baby Jesus from their crib at home and Fr. Stephen will bless them.  There will be some special treats for the children on the day!

Masses on Christmas Day will be at 10.00am. & 12 noon.  The 10 o’clock Mass will be broadcast on Mid West Radio.

Christmas visits to the sick and housebound will take place on Monday 18th December.

Confessions in the Community School on Tuesday 12th December and in Scoil Íosa on Wednesday 20th.

Mass on St. Stephen’s Day (Tuesday) will be at 12 o’clock instead of 10 o’clock.



Congratulations to the 29 children who received their First Holy Communion on Saturday 13th May 2017.  Thanks to their teachers Ms. Fitzmaurice and Ms. Flanagan for all their work in preparing the children for this important Sacrament.  Thanks also to Ms. Judge and Scoil Íosa choir for the beautiful music and singing.
