Change of Mass times
The number of Sunday Masses in Ss. Peter & Paul’s Church will be reduced from 3 to 2, commencing on Sunday 6th October 2013. Mass will be at 10.00am and 11.30am on Sunday, while the Vigil Mass will continue to be at 6.30am on Saturday. We regret this change. The decision was made by the Parish Pastoral Council due to the reduced number of priests in the parish following the appointment of Fr. John McManus as Parish Priest of Ballagh. He will not be replaced.
