Message from Fr Liam following his appointment on 5th September 2015
It will take me some time to get to know the parish but I am delighted to have the good service of the
Parish Pastoral Council and the parish office. The Church is one of the finest and cleanest I have seen for a long time,
so thanks to the Sacristan and the many volunteers. I am reliably told that there are great congregations at Masses
and, as I see it, we are all together in our prayers for the entire parish community. Also, in due course, I hope to get
a full appraisal of the parish financial situation which, like our homes, we have to take great care off.
I thank all parishioners for their support in this long established parish and I look forward to meeting as many
of you as possible as soon as we can.
Fr. Liam Belton
