Whats New
Fr Tom Hewitt MSC  As most of you now know, sadly, on Thursday 4th January 2018, at around 3.20pm, Fr. Tom passed away.  He died very peacefully in The Hospice of St Francis and was with parishioner Brendan Day and hospital chaplain Collette Lennon.  Throughout the day, many parishioners had been with Fr. Tom, which will have been a great source of comfort to him.  We offer our condolences to Fr. Tom's family, Fr. TJ, Fr. Jimmy, Fr. Sandy and Sister Anita, and to all those who knew him and loved him.
Please keep Fr Tom and his family and friends in your prayers. We will all miss him, and his wonderful outlook on life.

Funeral Arrangements
Fr . Tom's funeral will be at 10am on Wednesday 24th January at our church, followed by burial at Hatfield Road Cemetery.  

Fr Tom's body will have been received into the church the previous evening for 7pm Mass.

Message from Fr. Tom on Tuesday, 2nd January 2018:
Dear Friends, I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the magnificent support you have shown me over the past six weeks;  God has shown his love for me through you all and T.J., Jimmy and Sandy.

Book of Condolence
For anyone who would like to record a brief message of sympathy at the passing of Fr Tom, a book of condolence will be placed near the side altar in Church. The book will be given to Fr Tom’s family after his funeral.
