Gluten Free Communion Hosts approved by the Coeliac Society of Ireland are also available at all our Masses.  Simply ask the priest or minister when you are about to receive Holy Communion.

We hope that these small steps help everyone in our community to be able to participate more fully in our celebrations.  If there are other measures that you feel we need to take to make our parish more welcoming and inclusive please do not hesitate to mention them to us.                                            Fr Seán
