Parish Information

   Since the beginning of June you have been aware that there is only one priest in the Parish and we have three Churches to be catered for.

Up to the present we have been blessed with Mass at 9.30am each weekday, two Saturday Vigil Masses and four Sunday Masses.

I am blessed to have Fr. Pat Stafford (retired), who is willing to help regularly and I am most grateful to him for his support and generosity. When it comes to Fr. Pat or I going away for Pilgrimage or Holiday then it will be impossible for one priest to supply all Masses as at present.

At least one hour and a quarter will be needed between Masses. Unfortunately, the morning Mass in Ballyduff will be dropped.

​To help facilitate a comfortable time between Masses the following arrangement will commence on 10th/11th October:

Saturday Vigil Mass: Ferns: 6.15pm, Ballyduff: 7.30pm.

Sunday Mass: Ferns: 8.30am, Clologue: 9.45am, Ferns: 11.00am.

All areas will change a little but this seems best for the present, please understand…
