Fr. Hyoe Murayama SJ Director of NOSSEF shares a special video marking the 20th anniversary of the Secondary School in our sister parish of Railaco.

The video highlights the St Canice’s connection, and the foundational role that so many of our parishioners, past and present, have played. Thank you.

As our parish priest Fr Paul Fyfe SJ often reminds people, ‘we all look to support the Railaco parish in producing people of a deeply grounded faith, some of whom through their rural upbringing and secondary education will have the capacity to affect the direction not just of the area but of the country’.

Thanks to a good number of our donors who have committed to recurring donations, we’ve managed to get through the Covid years and still provide a level of funding to support the activities in our sister parish.

We have a very special liturgy planned for the 10.30 am Mass on St Ignatius Feast day on 31 July here at St Canices. This will be an opportunity for us to share more with the St Canice community about our relationship with our good neighbours in Railaco. We’ll also encourage others to consider donating on a recurring basis. We look forward to seeing you and having our own celebrations at that Mass.
