We Hope You Like Our Combined Newsletter.
This is the another issue of the newly combined newsletter for our two parishes, Saggart and Newcastle. We hope you like it. It is another example of the growing co-operation between our two parishes.

It means that people throughout the two parishes (and they are two BIG parishes!) will be able to keep up with events across the whole district. It also means it will be possible for parishioners to advertise events and issue news across the two parishes in just one publication.

The deadline for items to be included in the newsletter is 1pm on Friday. See notice below about how to make sure notices can be included. This space is available for your notices. Please email them to: saggartparish(at) or deliver them by hand to Saggart Parish Office or Text them to 087-6397744 clearly marked ‘For Newsletter’ Before 1pm on Friday
