3 April 2022 Fifth Sunday of Lent

Parish Pastoral Council Election 2022

The Pastoral Council is to work alongside the priest to build up the faith in the parish community. They will assess what are the spiritual and pastoral needs of the parish and initiate practical action to address those needs. Above all, they will endeavour to bring out the gifts that so many in our community have and to invite people to use their gifts and talents for the good of the parish. Nomination forms for electing a new parish pastoral council are available in each of the churches in the parish. Please take home a Ballot Paper, nominate a person from your area, and place your Ballot in the boxes provided in all churches next weekend.

Palms will be blessed at all Masses next weekend

CENSUS NIGHT on Sunday, 3 April 2022

They provide vital information to help plan for services such as health, education, transport, childcare and care for the elderly in our communities now and in the future. Be counted and be a voice for yourself, your family and your community. The census is carried out by the Central Statistics Office.
