Browsing our website, there is so much to see and do. If you are new to the parish "Welcome".  You can register your details with us on this site and you can also arrange for a priest, parish sister or pastoral assistant to visit you at home.

I am sure you will find this website interesting and will want to return.  Finally if I, or any of our pastoral team can be of any help to you, please do not hesitate to contact us.
