RE-DEDICATION OF ST MARY'S CHURCH, Sunday 8 December 2019 at 3pm.

Following the recent renovations and renewal, St Mary's Church will be re-dedicated to the service of God by the Bishop of Clogher, Most Reverend Lawrence Duffy, on Sunday 8 December 2019 at 3pm. The highlight of the liturgy will be the consecration of the altar and the walls of the church as they are anointed with the oil of chrism. This will signify the centrality of the altar as the place where Christ is present among us through the sharing of his sacrifice on the cross and his resurrection. It will also signify that the church is a holy place; a place set apart for prayer and worship. The Parish Liturgy Group has   begun work on planning the liturgy itself. More details  later. St Mary's was first dedicated in November 1861.
