This moment of doubt, fear, this hour of making the right decision;
When everything seems to be going against me. Amen

omorrow, Monday 5th, May is a Bank Holiday. There will be one Mass only at 11.00am.
All parishioners who donated €250 or more to the parish in 2013
have been sent a CHY4 cert.
When you sign and return them to us we will be able to seek a tax refund of approximately 45% of the total donated.
