Launched ! Launched! Launched!

Our new parish web site


The new parish web site was formally launched by Bishop Smith when he visited the parish for Confirmation last week.  From now on, you will be able to receive the parish bulletin every week. We are linked to Catholic Ireland and it will feed in news every day to the web site. There will be a thought for the day every day and the weekend reading can be downloaded. In addition, the website will carry useful information regarding the sacraments in our parish. Marriage booking forms and baptismal forms etc can be downloaded.


Contact numbers and web site details for all the schools in the parish are included.  In time it is hoped to develop the community section, with a link to all the community and recreational groups, clubs and organisations in the parish.


We thank all who have helped with the launch, especially Eamonn McGonigle who has given an immense amount of time in recent weeks to get our web site up and running. We are happy to receive any feedback or suggestions you wish to give.




Congratulations to Isabella Lopez (Fairyhouse Lodge), Chloe Forde (Coill Beag), Ryan Rooney (Fox Lodge Wood), Rebecca Walsh (Fox Lodge Wood),  Corey Walsh (Leigh Valley), Ryan Dunne (Moulden Bridge) and Niamh Mangan (The Old Mill) who were baptised last weekend.


Please pray for Thomas Everard (Glascarn Lane) and Molly Gaffney (Clonalvy) who died during the week. May they rest in peace.
