EASTER 2019

The priests of the parish wish to thank all who contributed in any way to the beautiful Easter ceremonies over the past few days in the parish, especially the choirs who practiced long hours during Lent to add to the solemnity of our celebrations of the Paschal Mystery.

Special thanks to Fr Seamus O'Neill who continues to serve the parish so generously and whose support to the priests of the parish is invaluable.

May everyone have a joyful Easter and may the hope the resurrection of Jesus offers cast away the shadows of winter in all our hearts.

Rejoice for He is risen

MONDAY EVENING MASS

parish survey

Thank you to all parishioners who took part in the recent parish survey. There was a tremendous response and sometime after Easter an overall picture of parishioners responses will be made available.

If you offered your services to the parish but did not sign the survey, please give your name and address to one of the priests of the parish.

Once again thank you for taking the time to participate in this ongoing conversation that all parishes in the diocese of Derry must have as we now face the challenges of fewer priests in the immediate future.
