To those who are bereaved

Death is always a sad occurrence. To lose a spouse, parent, family member or close friend is surely one of the most painful experiences we must endure in life.
The priests of the parish are most anxious to be a source of support and strength at this time and will be here to help in the months and years ahead. Our prayers are never unmindful of your grief. Your priests would feel privileged to be of help in any way at any time during your time of grief.

Please contact the Parish Office on 053 942 1117 or in case of emergencies the Parish Mobile 087 237 8773.
