As you will no doubt have observed the fence along our driveway has come down and been replaced by a temporary fence while the adjoining property undergoes construction. Please take extra care over the coming weeks while the temporary fencing is in place. Thank you for your cooperation.

Please remember the sick in your prayers, especially Timothy Davey, Beni Hasheem, Miki Caputo, Elisabeth Duluk, Anne Russell, Germaine Miernik, Mary Smith (Gerard and Tim’s sister), Vincenza Martucci (Ines Barson’s mother) and Daniel Mageean (Bernard’s brother). Please remember also the recently deceased and also those whose anniversaries occur about this time.

Just a reminder that all children need to be accompanied to and from the toilet, ideally by an adult family member. Please be careful of small children when exiting the car park after mass and a reminder to all parents to watch their children after mass.
