Sacraments & Funerals
Celebrating the sacraments is at the core of our parish life. Our big moments in life are marked in a solemn way from womb to tomb.
Here we provide all the details for the celebration of the sacraments in our parish.
To arrange a funeral ceremony please contact Fr. Jimmy as soon as possible on 028 67721342.
Baptisms take place First Saturday of the month at 3.00pm and Second Sunday of the month after the 10am Mass in St. Mary’s and after the 11.30am Mass in Holy Cross.
Congratulations on your decision to get married. It would be helpful if you could give at least 12 months notice of your intention to be married in either of our Parish churches.
Confirmation is celebrated each year in our parish.
Eucharist and First Communion
First Holy Communion
Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) takes place every Saturday in Holy Cross at 12noon but is available at any time by phoning any of the Priest’s.
Housebound and Sacrament of the Sick
Every First Friday week of the month, the priests visit the housebound with Holy Communion. If you are unable to attend Mass due to illness or frailty and would like to be visited by a priest on the First Friday, please feel free to contact Fr. Jimmy or Canon Joe.
The ongoing life of the church depends on vocations to the priesthood. Our diocese has a director of vocations and we’d be delighted to make an introduction for any interested candidates. Talk to any of the priests to get more information. The Diocesan website may also have useful information about Vocations in our diocese.
