I would like to send Christmas greetings not only to all our parishioners both at home and overseas but to all in the wider community. I know that Christmas means many different things to different people for some it is a time of homecoming, for some it is a great family time, for others not so, for others it is a time of great joy and happiness while for others it is a time of pain and sorrow and loss.

Whatever your situation this Christmas, know that you are very much in my thoughts and prayers. In the name of our parish community I extend a very warm welcome to you all to join with us for Christmas Celebrations.

There is a warm welcome and a place for everyone in our Parish Community, not only at Christmas, but always. A sincere “thank you” to all who contribute to the wellbeing and building up of the Parish throughout the year and to all who help out and volunteer in so many different ways.

I wish you all every blessing for Christmas and 2015.
Fr. David Cribbin P.P


Don’t waste time and energy worrying about needless things
40% of them will never happen,
30% have already happened and can’t be changed,
12% are needless worries about our health,
and only 8% are genuine.
Try to separate the real from the unnecessary and
solve those which are within your ability to solve.
