This is our parish, our local Christian community. The Church of the Sacred Heart, in the heart of the Donnybrook village, is the focal point for our worshipping community.

The web site has been developed to present helpful information and a sense of belonging. It is also an invitation to become involved at some level in the life of the parish and to use your talents in the service of others.

Wishing you every blessing
