Everything is set for a special concert in our church on this Sun. Nov. 22nd @ 7pm.  Over 80 young people from different parishes have been involved so far and have attended two rehearsals already.  Ina Callinan, liturgical music composer, will conduct the group. The Dublin Gospel Choir and other professional musicians will also support the young people during the concert. 

Please come along and support the young people.  This will be our way of encouraging them as well as enjoying a special evening of sacred music.  There will be no admission charge but you can make a donation.


Thanks to our own Parish Pastoral Council who have helped to arrange this event and have been present for all rehearsals.  

Preparations are going well for the Songs of Faith 2015 Concert to be held in our church on Sun. Nov. 22nd @ 7pm.  Young people from different parishes in the Cork area and from West Cork have attended two rehearsals under the direction of Ian Callinan, musical composer and director.  It will be a great occasion. 


Please support these young people by coming along to the concert.  There is no admission fee but you may make a donation on the night.  It is great to see young people giving their time, their talents and their goodwill to this event.  Please support them and you will be inspired.


Remembering those who have died by suicide and the suicide bereaved after 7pm Mass on next Sat. Sept. 12th.  There will be a brief prayer service and symbolic balloon release after mass.  Please God our prayers, memories and gestures will ease the pain for many families who have been tragically bereaved.

Pope Francis completes his visit to Cuba and the USA this weekend.  The visit has been a wonderful success.  He has spoken to the House of Congress and then immediately afterwards looked even more happy to eat with the homeless of Washington.  He treats everyone equally, with great love and profound respect.  Memorably he prayed with people outside the House of Congress reaching out to people of no faith and belief asking them ‘to send good wishes in his direction’. 


Today we not only ‘send good wishes’ in his direction but we also pray for our Holy Father and pray for him in his courageous and powerful leadership.  God bless Pope Francis.  


The final surface was completed on the main church roof during the past week.  The scaffolding around the church will now be removed this week.  Work will commence on the sacristy roof this coming week and will be completed quickly.

Sincere thanks for your patience during these ongoing major works.  All external works should now be completed very soon.
