Fr. O'Brien Parish visiting: Normally in the summer, whenever I have been in a parish, I always try to visit parishioners. It gives me a chance to learn more about the parish and the people who make up the family of St. Mary's plus it gives me the opportunity to bless people's homes and families. If you would like a visit then please contact the presbytery or email. Following safeguarding guidelines, I can only visit those who ask me directly and not through another person. God Bless.


Wedding Preparation Course: The course comprises 4 sessions to be held in The Parish Centre at 7:30pm on Tuesday Evenings on 18th Sept. 2nd Oct, 16th Oct and the 30th Oct.

All couples need to make an appointment to see Father O'Brien prior to attending the course.


Baptism Course: The next courses (in two parts) will be on Sundays 1" July & 5" August: All parents wanting their child to be Baptism in the next few months are expected to attend both sessions and attend Mass between times.

The pilgrimage is available for over 18s. The cost of the pilgrimage is £690 and this includes flights, full board accommodation and insurance.

Unwanted Religious items:  Many people have asked me the question about what to do with any religious items they have at home such as statues, rosaries, and prayer cards that have been broken, damaged or passed on to them from a relative or friend. If you have any such religious items that you don't want then you are more than welcome to pass them on to me during the summer and I will either dispose of them in an appropriate way (because many of them have been blessed) or if they are in good condition pass them on to another who could use them. I cannot take any books.


God Bless: Fr. O'Brien
