Helping in our Churches: Over the past two years we have experienced periods of great change with the pandemic. Now that we are thankfully emerging back to normality, we are looking to re-energise our group of Parish volunteers. Some people have given decades of service in this way and we are now all asked to consider how we might be able to help in whatever way we can. We are particularly looking to recruit new volunteers as Sacristans and Cleaners at this time. If you would like to volunteer or to know more please contact Fr Dariusz or Joanne in the Parish Office.

This applies whether you are getting married in the parish, elsewhere in Ireland or overseas.
