At the beginning of 2017, Michael Whelan SM, Parish Priest, commissioned an icon of St Dimpna who is the patron saint of people in mental and emotional distress – especially those who have been sexually abused. Her feast day is on May 15. The icon will form the focus of an annual devotion to St Dimpna each May, with prayers especially for those who are in distress as a result of sexual abuse.
The St Dimpna Community gathers in the Crypt each second Saturday of the month at 7.00pm to offer a place of prayerful support especially for those who have been sexually abused and for anyone with mental or emotional distress.
