Message from Fr Michael

Many thanks to all who assisted in the Easter celebrations – musicians, readers, servers, stewards/sanitizers, cleaners, flower arrangers and especially those whose help is not so visible. During this Covid period, we have been blessed with many loyal volunteers who have helped to keep our parishes alive.

It is greatly appreciated.


Sean Elliott

Sean has been with us for approximately six months and Bishop Marcus has indicated that he would like to ordain him Deacon and for him to continue his placement here at St Columba’s & St Malachy’s until his priestly ordination.

Bishop Marcus would also like Sean’s diaconate ordination to take place in St Malachy’s Church and the date for this has been fixed as Thursday 29th April at 7.00pm.

We wish Sean our heartiest congratulations.

As always, please indicate your attendance through the Eventbrite system on the website or by contacting Fr Michael.
