The parish choir will hold a practice on Wednesday evening next in the church at 8pm.


A meeting on Friday next at 8pm.

The focus of the church during the Advent season is Christ’s threefold coming – past, present, and future.  First, we remember the Lord’s humble first coming in Bethlehem two thousand years ago.  This is what we celebrate on Christmas.  Second, we give thanks for His present and continual coming to us through the Word and Sacraments.  Finally, we look forward with hope and patience to His victorious second coming as our Saviour leading us to Heaven.

Let us celebrate this Advent as a family adoration at our Sunday Mass. A fitting preparation for Christmas. The 11am Mass each Sunday in Advent will be geared   especially for our children.


Sat 7.30pm: James Lonergan, Philip Purcell,

Marion Dawson, Jim Corby

Sun 9am:  John O’Brien,
