In the year 2000 the two parishes of Epping and Carlingford entered a common relationship through the sharing of a single Parish Priest. Over the next six or seven years the parishes entered a process of increasing collaboration and sharing of resources and pastoral programmes, including the sharing of a common parish staff. In July 2007 the two parishes formally became one parish with the name of The Catholic Parish of Epping and Carlingford. In the model we are following however we still retain two distinct (though of course collaborating and cooperating) communities within our single parish structure the communities gathered around our two parish churches of St Gerard's at Carlingford and Our Lady Help of Christians' at Epping.

Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Centenary Celebration of

Our Lady Help of Christians

All Soulsí Day - 2 November 2016

We are now two weeks away from our second Centenary year celebration for Our Lady Help of Christiansí Epping, the memorial Masses at Our Lady Help of Christians Church to remember all past parishioners on All Soulsí Day, Wednesday 2nd November.

All parishioners from our Epping and Carlingford communities, past and present are invited to be part of this occasion and are invited to bring along a photo or item that symbolises your deceased loved one/s. The photo or item will be placed at the Sanctuary for the Mass and may be left at the Sanctuary until the following weekend, Sunday 6th November.

Due to limited space, we ask that you bring small photos (framed or unframed) or small items only and for security reasons please do not bring any valuable items. Please also remember to put your name and contact number at the back of the photo or item to enable you to collect the item after the display.

The All Soulsí Day Mass times at Our Lady Help of Christians Church are at 9.30am (School Mass) and 7.00pm. Following the 7.00pm Mass, there will be a light supper held in the Parish Hall at Epping. If you are coming we ask that you please bring along a plate of supper food to share.

Let us come together to celebrate the Mass and share supper as we remember our deceased loved ones.
