OCTOBER MONTH OF THE ROSARY
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.
A Mass leaflet with the correct readings for Sunday can be downloaded here: Missalette
