St Conleth’s Parish Newbridge Annual Novena to Our Lady of Perpetual Help begins on Monday 12th April and will run for nine Monday nights until 07th June.� All are welcome.


Every year our Annual Novena proves to be a wonderful occasion for the life of our parish. This year the theme of our Novena is taken from St. Paul’s letter to the Romans chapter 8,

“Nothing can ever come between us and the love of God”.

Our celebration will commence each Monday evening at 7:30 pm in Saint Conleth’s Church. We very much welcome your petitions that will be prayed for throughout the Novena, a special box will be provided in the church for petitions.
