We are now in the Easter Season
During this season we celebrate the Resurrection From The Dead of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
From His Resurrection until His Ascension into Heaven, Jesus appeared to His disciples several times.
Day for Priests
Would you like to support your local priest even more fully?
On Friday 27th June @ 8pm, there will be a gathering at Our Lady's Island to pray for our priests. Part of an international relay of prayer (at 60 venues selected worldwide), the people of Ferns are the prayer link between Cardigan in Wales and Oregan in the U.S. on this WORLD DAY FOR PRIESTS.
Mark in the date now, discuss it with fellow parishioners who might like to join you. Invite your local priest to come along and to experience your prayerful support.
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
takes place in St Kevin's Church, Tara Hill every Wednesday from 3pm - 7pm. All are welcome.
Blesseds John XXIII and John Paul II will be canonised on 27 April
Welcome to St Michael's Catholic Church
a Catholic Christian community under the patronage of St. Michael the Archangel with the gospel of Jesus Christ at the centre of our worship and belief. We are in the Catholic Diocese of Ferns in the south east corner of Ireland, almost co-extensive with County Wexford. The parish is served by two churches, St. Michael's Church in Gorey town and St. Kevin's Church in Tara Hill.
We strive, through our parish organisation, to do in memory of Jesus what he requested us to do - to repent and believe, to love and forgive, to care for the needy - and to find strength to do this at the table of His Word and the table of the Eucharist.
If you are not already an active member of our church, consider sharing in what we have to offer. All are welcome - the saint and the sinner - in our midst.
Rev. William Howell, Parish Priest.
