Corpus Christi Sunday

The Feast of Corpus Christi, or the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ celebrates the institution of the Sacrament of Holy Communion at the Last Supper. Christ’s Body and Blood in the Holy Communion is our true food as Christians. It nourishes and  gives us strength to live our lives in union with God and to do His holy will.  May Jesus present in the Blessed Sacrament be Adored and Glorified now and forever. Amen

With Deepest Sympathy

We Sympathise with the family of Emer O’Rahilly whose funeral took place in the parish this week. May she Rest In Peace.
