in the Diocese of Down & Connor

This weekend we celebrate the great feast of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit came down upon the apostles.  In an instant a group of frightened disciples were empowered to go out and proclaim God’s amazing dream for the world - the Good News of Jesus Christ!

When we read about Pentecost and the birth of the Church in the Acts of the Apostles, we find inspiration for where we are as a Church here in Ireland today.  We know that we have come to a fork in the road.  We can’t keep going the way we were, we have to head out on a new pathway.

In Down & Connor the Pathways to the Future project is charting the next steps on this journey.  We have to be realistic - change is inevitable.  There will be new ways of working in our parishes and communities.  But this isn’t something to be afraid of.  God still has a dream for our Church.  He wants us to be filled with the Spirit and willing to go out and share the Gospel with others.  He wants us to be generous, loving and inclusive, welcoming everyone into his family.  And he wants us to be confident that each of us - lay women and men, clergy and religious - has a part to play in renewing our parishes, the diocese and building up the Kingdom of God.

To find out more we encourage you to read Bishop Donal McKeown’s Pastoral Letter available on or or collect one at the Church porch entrance.



                                                                                          The holy water fonts (which had not been in use since the start of the Covid restrictions)

in the church porch have been filled with water blessed at the Easter vigil,

and will remain supplied with holy water for those

who want to use them entering and leaving the church
