As St Patrick’s Day approaches: A novena of prayers in honour of our national patron will be celebrated at the end of each Mass in the parish beginning on Monday 9 March and concluding on the holyday. The novena prayer leaflet will be available in the porch as you enter for each Mass.

‘We pray through the intercession of our national patron, St Patrick, for the faith and well-being of the people of Ireland’ (The Irish Bishops, 2014).
