Please pray for those doing exams in the current weeks:
Exam Blessing
Lord, pour out your spirit of wisdom upon
me and my fellow students,
Help me to remain calm,
To attend carefully to the question asked, 
To think clearly, to remember accurately,
And to express myself well.

Grant that I may reflect the best of the work that
I have done
And the best of the teaching I have received.
Accept my best efforts in these examinations
And in the great test of life on earth.
May your love be upon me, O Lord,
As I place all my trust in you.

I ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Change from baskets to sealed collection bags: Our parish auditors “D.F. Dillion” have contacted us in preparation for our 2018 audit. They have informed us that in accordance with “Guidance and procedures as set out in the Irish Episcopal Conference Guidelines – Financial Controls and Related processes with Parishes” that Parishes should utilize sealed collection bags rather than open baskets. These have been purchased and will be introduced in our three churches in the next few weeks. Most people will be familiar with these bags as they are used in most churches presently.


Hospitalised or Housebound: If a parishioner or family member is hospitalised or housebound and you would like Fr. Brendan to call for the sacraments, it is vitally important that you let him know. Due to Data Protection the Hospitals do not give out the names of people who are in the hospital so it is down to the family to inform Fr. Brendan

A Question people often ask: When best to book Masses, Baptisms, Weddings etc. The best way is to see Fr. Brendan after Mass. (Text messaging is not reliable or recommended.) Or to phone the Parish office on 01-8350136 or email  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
