A special collection will be taken up at all Masses this weekend, 6th & 7th November in aid of Trocaire Emergency Appeal. The funds collected will go towards alleviating hunger and poverty in Sudan and other countries.

NOVEMBER in our Parish:

November Offerings – Please remember to send in the November Lists of the Dead. Masses will be said throughout the month for all our faithful departed. REMEMBRANCE TREE is in place in the sanctuary. Labels are available to write the names of your loved ones whom you wish to remember during this month. Due to Covid 19 we ask you to bring your own pen/pencil.

Nov 8th – Nov 11th:


As we are having a Mass of Consolation on the 12th November it would be lovely if you could leave in a candle - with name or names of deceased family member(s) on it -on the Altar rails during the week leading up to this Mass. These candles will be placed in our Sacred space for the remainder of the month of November.

Nov 12th:

MASS of CONSOLATION, 8pm in the Cathedral.
