Preparation for Marriage

All couples wishing to get married must book the church and contact the local priest well in advance of making preparations for their wedding day.

All couples must complete the Pre-Nuptial inquiry forms in their local parish at least six months before they wish to get married. Accord: From January 1st 2009 all Marriage Preparation Bookings will be done via the

website - www.gettingmarried.ie.

It is particularly important that couples planning to get married abroad must contact the local priest before making any arrangements with the travel agent or wedding co-ordinator. This should help to ensure that no serious difficulties arise before major commitments have been made.
Instruction from our Bishop, Most Rev.Michael Smith " Wedding arrangements must only be made when the couple meet with their priest and commence the pre-nuptial inquiry process...." This is part of further directives to be followed by priests in the diocese and issued by Bishop Michael Smith recently. Further details on the matter from your priest.


Please join us by saying the prayers on our PRAYER CARD each day.

We offer our prayer for the stated intentions of Pope Francis: We are constantly mindful in our prayer of those from our community who are sick, at home or in hospital: For the many who request the support of our prayers & often express their needs by writing them into the Intention Book placed in the Blessed Sacrament Oratory..........Lord, accept our prayers and favour us with the graces you have in store for us.

Pope's Intentions for February 2018
