Parish Newsletter

New newsletter format and opportunity for advertisement.


Following a decision by the PPC and other concerned parties it has been decided to produce our monthly newsletter, which is delivered to homes in the parish, in a new updated and colour format.  Liturgical Publications of Ireland (LPi) will be our new Newsletter publisher. Christine Daly, their Newsletter representative visited our Church  in connection with the advertising element of the newsletter.

For those interested in placing an ad, this is your opportunity.

 Our Newsletter is the primary way we use to communicate with our parishioners.  Through our arrangement with LPi the Church does not have to pay for the newsletter printing, which saves us money.   Our new Newsletter will be supported through the generosity of the advertisers—many of whom may be our own Church parishioners or members of our local community.

A strong and vibrant Newsletter is good for our community and a strong business community is good for our Church.

To obtain information about advertising for the new publication year, please call Christine Daly directly at (086) 813 7924 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

If you wish to submit an article or piece for inclusion in  the  newsletter please email it directly to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. before the 5th of the month. The newsletter team reserve the right to include or not to include material in the newsletter or to edit or shorten the material etc that is published.

Keep in mind; our advertising sponsors will make the Newsletter possible. Many thanks to all those who have sponsored advertisements to date. Copies of the newsletter can be accessed under the Parish News tab, Parish Newsletter section.
