During the month of October we pray in a very special way to our Blessed Mother Mary asking her to watch over us, protect us and keep us safe. Join us every morning in St Finian’s church at 9.30am to pray the Rosary. When we say the Rosary it settles our hearts and mind. It reaches deep down into our souls and puts us at ease, creating a peace that is rare and beautiful.

Book the Rosary Statue for a week and notice the difference that praying the Rosary brings. Just leave your contact details with Stephanie in the parish office (01 8409043) or with a member of the Legion of Mary. Brona (086 2104151) or Kathleen (086 3242710.

The Legion of Mary meet every Thursday at 7pm in the meeting room in St Finian’s.

All are Welcome
