Sacramental Certificates

Tuesday, October 30th, 2018

In order to comply with the Data Protection Act, all requests for Sacramental Certificates need to be made in writing and a certificate can only be issued to those named on the Parish records – for instance, the person who was baptised, or, in the case of someone under the age of 16, their parent or guardian.

To request a certificate confirming entry in one of the church registers, please visit the Sacramental Certificates page for more details.

Apostolic Work

Sunday, June 17th, 2018

After the renovations in the Church, and the installation of the new tabernacle, Fr Armstrong donated the old one along with vestments, statues and a processional cross. The tabernacle has been delivered to Fr Ignatius in Malawi and is in the process of being installed. The other items have been delivered to Parishes north of Malawi.

Apostolic Work has been working in Ireland since 1923, and in our Parish since it’s foundation, as committed lay people and religious to pray for and support the work of Irish Missionaries (and others) wherever they serve.

The Parish branch would like to thank the parishioners for their ongoing support and generosity.

Parish Webcamera

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

The Parish webcamera is now online, all Masses from the church will be streamed via the website and can be accessed around the world. 

It is hoped that broadcasts will enable Parishioners who are sick and housebound, and who have access to the internet, to be a part of the daily celebration of the Eucharist. If you have a relative or friend who would like to use live-streaming and may not be familiar with the internet, please help them to access the service via whichever device they can easily learn to use.

We are very grateful to the Order of the Knights of Saint Columbanus for their generous donation towards the cost of this project.
