Novena for the Faithful Departed.

Fr Michael and Fr Chris would like to invite you to our Novena for the Faithful Departed in between 2nd and 10th November. The Novena remembers all of our deceased generally, and all the Masses celebrated in both Churches will be for our deceased brothers and sisters. We are especially conscious of the all the funerals here in our parishes since last year’s Novena. We look forward to meeting and praying with you; we hope that our time together will bring healing, comfort and peace. To give people an option Masses will be in the morning in the Cathedral at 9.30am and in the evening at 7.30pm in Rath.

Envelopes for our Novenas are available at the back of the Churches

It was great to see so many of our young parents and their children gather for the First Sacramental Preparation Mass of the year which took place in the Cathedral last Saturday.  

We wish all of those receiving First communion and Confirmation every second year our prayers and good wishes.
