Sunday – 9am Holy Family, 9:30am St. Columba’s, 11am Sacred Heart, 11am St. Mary’s and 5:30pm St. Mary’s.

Mass Times & Other Important Information:

It is very difficult at the moment to plan, arrange and confirm events too far into the future, however we will try our best to keep you informed of news and events through this newsletter, and notices in the entrance to both churches.

We will try to arrange at least one weekday Mass each week but there is also a daily Mass at St. Mary’s church, Duke Street at 12:10pm.

It is our intention to keep the churches open during the days if you wish to drop by and say a prayer or light a candle for Fr. Bernard.
