All Liturgical Services have been suspended until further notice. This includes Mass and the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

The Church is now closed all the time, so people cannot come here to pray privately

Private funerals can be held subject to conditions which have been imposed on us.

People who are very sick or dying will still be ministered to by the Priest.

Parish groups have suspended their activities. This includes the Friendship Club, the Men's Group and the card group.

Bookings are not being taken for the Community centre.

Financial Matters

Our Parish has always relied on the generosity of Parishioners to support the Priest and the expenses of running the Parish. At present our only income is from Credit Card contributors. If you usually contribute to the Thanksgiving Program by using Envelopes, you can either post these to the Parish Office or deliver them. At this stage the Office is still operating as normal.

At present the Priest is not receiving any income. If you would like to donate to the Presbytery Account you can leave your donation at the Office or deposit directly into the following account:

Upcoming Events


By appointment, contact Presbytery for details.

We welcome Parishioners who would like to have their children baptised in our Parish. Before making any arrangements, families must attend a Preparation Meeting which is usually held in the Yarn on the last Monday of the month. (Bookings are essential for this meeting).  After attending this meeting, families can arrange a date for the Baptism with Fr John.

Baptisms are usually celebrated on the second and third Sunday of the month.

Anyone interested in arranging a Baptism should first speak to Fr John.


The Statue of Our Lady of Fatima moves around the Parish week to week so that the Rosary is said continuously throughout the year. Parish families volunteer to take on this task which has been a part of Parish life for many years.

First Communion

The Sacrament of First Eucharist is usually celebrated in June each year. Children must be Baptised Catholics and be in Year 4 (or older) and must have already the received the Sacrament of Reconciliation.


This year we will be celebrating the Sacrament of Confirmation on Thursday 19th September. Any students wishing to receive the Sacrament must be Baptised Catholics and must have already received the Sacraments of Eucharist and Reconciliation. Students are usually in Year 6 or older.
