The Liturgy group meet to prepare for and to review our liturgical celebrations – Last year they took part in a six weeks formation course through the National Liturgy Centre in Maynooth and they are always learning of various ways to enhance our liturgical life. The group can be contacted through the Parish Office.
The Parish Choir are so enthusiastic. Practices usually take place on Friday evenings at 7.30 pm in the Church and they greatly enhance the 11 am Mass on Sundays throughout the year – new members are always welcome!
