Everyone, catholic or not, is always welcome to visit, light a candle and pray or reflect in the quiet, peaceful calm of the church which is open each day. There is all-day adoration of The Blessed Sacrament each Tuesday and on the first Friday of each month and people are always welcome to commit to spending an hour or to drop in anytime.
As we write this, the parish is trying to recover from the shock of the recent sudden death, in February 2015, of parish priest Fr Padraig McGowan, who had ministered here for 28 years. He took tremendous pride in every aspect of the church and put meticulous effort into the various celebrations, particularly Christmas and Easter. He came into his own with his very special and highly appreciated, thoughtful way of conducting weddings and funerals. He was a sincere, hard-working, studious man who lived fairly abstemiously.
