Support In Crisis

During this difficult time in our country and in the world, it’s natural that our well-being can go by the wayside. We need to be mindful of this and make sure to do little things every day to keep our physical, mental and spiritual well-being in as best order as possible. Below is a small start into how to look after yourself in these uncertain times. Please forward on any ideas that we can include and share with others.

You can get in touch with us in the parish by calling 01-4515570 or emailing Rest assured, everything is confidential.
