Special Famine Relief Appeal
A special collection will take place at all Masses over the weekend of July 22/23 to help Trocaire teams who are responding to the human catastrophe affecting 25 million people suffering from drought and conflict across East Africa.
Lord, when I am hungry, give me someone in need of food, When I am thirsty, send me someone needing a drink, When I am cold, send me someone to warm, When I am grieved, offer me someone to console, When my cross grows heavy, let me share another’s cross, When I think only of myself, draw my thoughts to another.

Child Protection: All members of our parish groups who are in contact with children or vulnerable adults have completed the Garda vetting procedure.

Dedicated to Mary, Mother of Jesus, our parish is called the Parish of the Assumption. We believe that, upon her death, Mary was taken straight to the presence of God. We call this ‘the Assumption’ of Mary to heaven. We trust that she protects and cares for us and brings our prayers to God. More…
