Men generally only from the watch, pen (ball point pen), wallet, leather belt, leather bags on the choice and wear to show their fashion and taste. However, due to the leather wallet, leather bags are often slightly cumbersome and covered by women's fashion, so the choice of masculine men tend to watch and pen.

Best Wishes to all mothers in the Parish today; Mothering Sunday

















 Bishop Duffy


Bishop group

Bishop Lawrence (Larry) Duffy: We keep Bishop Larry, our chief pastor and leader in the faith, very much in our prayers.

Bishop Duffy’s ordination was a wonderful occasion and after almost two and a half years our Diocese has a Bishop.

Around forty- five people from the parish attended the ceremony and all enjoyed it very much.















The crest of our new bishop has three sections and three background colours. The white and black are a reference to Fr Larry’s native parish of Magheracloone while the blue denotes his association with and love of his native Monaghan. The Masai shield and the two crossed spears represent his strong links with the Diocese of Kitui in Kenya. The rowan berries and leaves are a tribute to St Macartan, the first Bishop of Clogher. The bottom part of the shield shows an image of three stained-glass windows, representing the beauty of God’s light, shining through the saints.


The new bishop’s chosen motto is displayed below the shield - “God is Love”. This is taken from the First Letter of St John (I John 4:16), which reads: ‘God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.’


These words – God is Love – express the heart of our Christian faith. They joyfully proclaim the Christian image of God: a loving God, active in our world. Love is the fundamental dimension of God’s relationship with us and of our lives as Christians.
