The Holy Bible
Fr. Ninian and the parishioners of St. Pius X, bid you a hearty welcome to our parish website. As our site develops, in addition to parish activities, we hope to provide information pertinent to the development of our Catholic Faith. We thank you for your interest and look forward to your continued support. May God abundantly bless you and your loved ones.
Notice from the Parish Priest
Thank you for everyone’s prayers and messages during my recent illness. I’m grateful to
Canon Mulholland, Father Murphy OP and Father Pletts for being able to supply for my absence at various Masses on
Saturdays and Sundays. I’m sorry for the weekday opportunities that have been missed, but we simply don’t have any
“spare” priests to ask, and it would be imprudent to expect to place additional burdens on their own schedules.
This coming week, Monday 8th to Friday 12th I had already announced weeks in advance my absence, and I will take this
opportunity to be away and recover even more in a different environment to the presbytery.
The clergy of the Diocese are expected to be in Kinnoull with the Bishop Tuesday 16th
-Thursday 18th November.
Alternative Mass times are as follows:
Tuesday 16th at 10am & Thursday 18th at 6pm, both at St Pius X.
There is no Wednesday Mass at St Patrick’s on the 17th, but on Friday 19th there will be both the 1pm and 7pm Masses there.
Please don’t hesitate to come and speak to Father Doohan in the Sacristy after Holy Mass, especially regarding making
appointments, or about the Sacraments, it saves a great deal of time to be introduced to families seeking Christening etc
rather than trying to arrange everything via email. Any appointments missed in the last month? Please don’t hesitate to
get back in touch!
O Saving Victim opening wide the gates of heaven to man below. Our foes press on from every side, Your aid supply Your strength bestow.
St. Michael, the Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray.
