Each Christmas, the parishioners, friends and visitors to our Parish show their overwhelming generosity in donating money to the Parish’s chosen charity at our annual Carols by Candlelight service, held just before Christmas. This year’s service is being held on Sunday night, 18th December at 7:00pm and our chosen charity is The Alzheimer Society of Ireland.
Do please support this charity and give as generously as you possibly can – it will be much appreciated. Thank you.
