World Meeting of Families 2018

“As Advent is the season of preparation for the coming of our Lord, I encourage the faithful, notwithstanding our hectic schedule over the coming weeks, to make time to pray – alone and with loved ones – and by so doing to draw nearer to Christ”
“Let’s Talk Family, Let’s Be Family this Advent”
– Archbishop Eamon Martin

Advent comes from the Latin word meaning “coming.” Jesus is coming, and Advent is intended to be a season of preparation for His arrival. While we typically regard Advent as a joyous season, it is also intended to be a period of preparation, much like Lent. Prayer, penance and fasting are appropriate during this season.

Many thanks for visiting our Parish website. This site has been designed with three aims:

Firstly to aid the work of our priests in our parishes in preaching the word of Jesus and their teaching of His message to us.

Secondly to aid parents, children and adults as our children and young adults prepare for the Sacraments and also for adults who are preparing for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).

Thirdly to reflect the wider community among whom we live and the various activities and organisations that go to make up our community. We acknowledge and respect the diversity of faiths and origins in our multi-faith and multi-ethnic community.

We invite your views and contributions on church and parish life. Also as this site was built with limited resources there may be aspects that could be improved – do let us know.

Feel free to e-mail us at
