Bishop Fintan has asked the priests of the diocese to keep 14th – 18th November free to attend planning talks as the need for pastoral restructuring becomes more evident and urgent. The priests of the diocese will spend this time working together to plan how best to support each other as they move towards closer collaboration in Families of Parishes. Therefore, weekday Masses are cancelled from 15th to 18th November.

Bishop Fintan will be paying a pastoral visit to this parish on the weekend on 4th/5th December. He will celebrate all of the weekend Masses in out three Churches. More information about this will follow in the coming weeks.
