Alternative location for Mass:

Installation of a New Heating System in the Church. The Church will be closed from 4th July to approx. end of August
During this time Sunday Masses, including the Vigil, will be celebrated in Our Lady of Mercy School Hall.


Those attending Sunday Mass may continue to park in the church car park, which, as most people know, connects to the Girls’ School via a gate. We respectfully request that the limited number of parking spaces available in the school car park be reserved for those who have mobility issues. Entrance to the school car park is via Rosemount

The 10am weekday Mass (Mon-Sat incl) will be celebrated in Room 2 of the Parish Centre. There will not be a 7.30am Mass in July or August. Weekday parking will be very limited for those attending 10am Mass in the Parish Centre as the builders will be using part of the church carpark for their cabin facilities. In adherence to Health and Safety requirements, no member of the public should venture into the construction areas, including the church.

We regret any inconvenience that the works in the church will cause to parishioners and friends of the parish.
