The Eucharist is the source and the summit of our faith. Click here for Mass times.
Confessions will be heard, starting at 10:45, in the Parish Hall on Saturdays.
Outside of fixed times, if you wish to meet a priest for Confession, please phone the Parish Office to make an appointment to see a priest. You can phone anonymously if you wish. The sacrament may be celebrated with a 2m social distance in the parish hall where a screen is available for those who wish to celebrate the sacrament anonymously.
Normally, Baptisms are celebrated on the first and third Saturdays of every month at 12:30. To make arrangements to celebrate Baptism, please contact the Parish Office.
The Sacrament of Confirmation is normally celebrated in two ceremonies in the month of March each year. If your child attends the parish senior school, St. Fiachra’s SNS, details of the arrangements will be made available to you through the school. If your child attends a different school, please contact the Parish Office to prepare for the sacrament.
If you are preparing for the Sacrament of Marriage, we would firstly like to congratulate you on your engagement! If you are resident in the parish, please make an appointment to meet one of the priests by contacting the Parish Office. Regardless of where you plan to celebrate the Sacrament, a priest from your parish will meet you to help you to prepare.
Please contact the parish at least three months before you intend to marry. Separately, you will need to notify the State of your intention. It may be helpful to contact the parish first so that you can know the name of the priest who will officiate at your wedding. The State will request the name of the solemniser as part of the registration process.
You may find the information on this page to be of help: http://www.together.ie/regulations.php. We cannot endorse its content but will be happy to discuss any concerns you have when you meet the priest.
God bless your preparations!
