Thought from Fr. Colm - 24th January 2020

What is important is that we - as a parish - continue the great work that has been built up over the years. The need for lay involvement will continue to increase with time. The role of the priest will also continue to be central to that life of the parish. Church attendances will continue to decrease for the foreseeable future. I'm sure many of us don't have to go beyond our own families to see this reality.

Some people will choose Mass times that suit their timetable. Other factors will also continue to dictate where we choose to worship. Closures will be inevitable. It is important that we are fully aware of these facts. Let's be positive - and adjust accordingly.
