Parish Notes


Mission Month:  The theme for this year's Mission Month of October is "That they may have life".  Pope Francis urges us to immerse ourselves in the joy of the Gospel. Sharing this message of Faith and Hope to our modern world is our Christian duty, as is assisting financially the growth of our young churches in the South.  Please help us at World Missions Ireland to share that gift of faith through your prayers and financial support of our missions. World Mission Sunday takes place this weekend, Sunday, October 19th.  For further information please visit
