LAUDATO SI WEEK COMING UP> CHECK THIS LINK FOR GREAT IDEAS

This Laudato Si’ Week and Pentecost, let us gather in community to contemplate and nurture seeds of hope for our “suffering planet” (LD 2). Laudate Deum is a reminder about the urgency of the Laudato Si’ message and the need for both personal and cultural transformation amidst our ecological and climate crises.

This year’s Laudato Si’ Week theme is inspired by the symbol for Season of Creation 2024, “firstfruits.” Let us be seeds of hope in our lives and our world, rooted in faith and love.

“There are no lasting changes without cultural changes … and there are no cultural changes without personal changes” (LD, 70)

Céad míle fáilte

Welcome to our Parish website! Whether you’re just visiting us for a brief time, looking for a new parish home, are returning to the practice of your Catholic faith or are interested in finding out more about the Catholic Church, we’re happy to have you here. We want to make our parish website an interesting and worthwhile location for both parishioners and visitors to keep up to date with what’s happening in our parish. We hope that all parishioners will see it as a useful resource. We welcome your feedback!  In the meantime, please look through the resources we’ve made available on these pages.

In our Parish we are fortunate to be living in very beautiful surroundings and even more blessed to have a good community spirit. Our four Church communities work closely with each other and with our Church of Ireland sisters and brothers and celebrate as much as possible in our common liturgies, where we come to meet and afterwards to talk with each other. This doesn’t happen in many places and it is a real sign of true community – a way of life in which we invite you to take part.
