Child Protection

Due to many families being disappointed when it comes to seeking a Months Mind or a First Anniversary Mass for a relative. In order to facilitate these families in their bereavement, from 1st. March, only Months Mind Masses and First Anniversary Masses can be booked in advance for the Saturday Evening Vigil Mass. Anniversary Masses may be booked at any of the Morning Masses or the Vigil Mass in the week prior to the anniversary. Should a Funeral Mass occur the 10.00am Mass is cancelled that morning, Anniversary Masses booked on that day will be rescheduled to another suitable day. Thank you for your co-operation.

The website for the Derry Diocesan Catechetical Centre has been launched by Bishop Hegarty. This website will help individuals, families, young and old to explore their faith. Check out the Youth Section and the very popular Thought for the Week

Marriage Preparation Courses.

Application forms are available from the parochial house or from the Accord Office 48 Brook Street,Omagh. Numbers on courses are limited. The fee of £100 per couple must be included with completed application form and forwarded to the Accord Office
