We thank all the members of our parish for your very generous support for our parish. We are especially grateful to our parishioners who use the weekly collection envelopes and who take part in the tax refund scheme. This brings a substantial additional benefit to our parish, at no cost to our parishioners.

Our gratitude is also due to the members of our finance council for their diligent work in taking care of our parish finances. The members of our parish finance council are Antoinette Quinlivan (Chairperson), Des Murphy, Susan King and Catherine Corry.

Christ with me, Christ before me,

Christ behind me,

Christ in me, Christ beneath me,

Christ above me,

Christ on my right, Christ on my left,

Christ in breadth, Christ in length,

Christ in height,

Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,

Christ in the mouth of every man who speaks of me,

Christ in every eye that sees me,

Christ in every ear that hears me.

(Prayer in the tradition of St Patrick)
