Our pictures take you behind the scenes to show some of the preparation for last Sunday's beautiful display of the fruits of the earth.


MISSION SUNDAY October is Mission Month.  There are approximately 1,500 Irish born missionaries working in more than 80 countries.  They continue to spread the Gospel through their work, their deep commitment to the people they serve and their Faith.  In essence, they lead by example and have helped to change, for the better, millions of lives all over the globe.  It is fitting then that the theme for this years’ Mission Month of October is ‘that they may have life’..life in all its richness and dignity.  The richness of knowing the Gospel and Jesus Christ and the dignity of having food to eat, a roof to sleep under and work to go to.  Through their work, our missionaries strive to make all this a reality for the people they serve

A concert featuring the Garda Choir and the Sacred Heart School Choir will take place in the Church of the Assumption on 24th October.  Tickets €10 are available in the Parish Centre.
