Lourdes Pilgrimage

Lourdes Pilgrimage

This week our Parish are on Pilgrimage in Lourdes. This is the 26th Parish Pilgrimage and is one of the highpoints of our Parish’s life and witness each year. Our Lourdes Pilgrimage is a microcosm of our spiritual quest.

We are all on the Pilgrimage of life. We support, pray and encourage each other on this journey.

As our Parish is following the daily routine of spiritual exercises and celebrations in Lourdes, we too here at home are sharing in this experience. A pilgrimage is not just an individual journey – it is a journey of community and solidarity.

Wedding Bells

Congratulations to Marcin Karczewski, Davis Road and Tourin, Poland and Inona Magdalena Pureba, Davis Road and Mogilino, Poland who were married in St. Mary’s this Saturday. We wish Marcin and Inona many years of happiness and togetherness.


We welcome Shane O’Neill from Knockanore who is a student studying for the Priesthood in Maynooth for our Diocese, who will be with us for his Pastoral assignment. We hope Shane will be enthused by his experience. We ask you to pray for him in these difficult times and that he will be an enriching and valued member of our Diocesan team.
