During the season of Lent people are invited to undertake some form of self-denial & to contribute towards the poor. We also invite people to join us each weekday (by webcam) during Lent for Mass at 11.00am or 7.30pm & to join with us in the recitation of the Rosary beforehand at 10.40am and 7.10pm.  The following link may be a useful prayer resource for families. – https:/www.armaghprays.com/lent-2021

TROCAIRE BOXES are available for collection at the back of the Churches or at the Parish Office.

We pray that despite the current lockdown restrictions this Lent will be a season of great grace and renewal for you & your family.  If restrictions are lifted our programme will be reviewed accordingly.
