About Our Parish

Our parish was founded in 1848 and since then the parish community has gathered weekly, and daily, for the celebration of Mass and other sacraments, and to celebrate significant moments in our lives.

Pope Francis reminds us that the Church should not be turned inwards on itself but rather turned outward to other people, especially to those in need. Therefore, each and quarter, we set a mission for the Parish; one that encourages all parishioners and groups to come together and work for a common cause.

People of all ages and nationalities, married and single, with children and without, have found a spiritual home here. Together we not only seek to deepen our knowledge and love of God but we also reach out in care and friendship to one another: within the parish, in the local area and further afield. In doing so, we have taken to heart Pope Francis’s call for us to be ‘missionary disciples’ by preaching the Gospel through what we say and do - and by being proactive in seeking out those whose lives are poor, or impoverished, in one way or another.
