Mission Statement of the Parish of Drumcree

Our Parish of Drumcree is a Christ-centred community. In Baptism we are challenged by the Spirit to live and share the Gospel message.

Through proclaiming the Gospel message to all, growth in faith, liturgy, justice issues and ecumenism we extend our love and care to all people providing support in renewing and deepening our faith. We value the gifts and talents of each of our parishioners and invite them to use these in responding to Christ’s invitation to all of us to follow Him and spread the Good News to the whole world.

‘For the Church the new world of cyberspace is a summons to the great adventure of using its potential to proclaim the Gospel message. This challenge is at the heart of what it means to “put out into the deep” (Lk 5:4)’

'Fish on Friday' - Nourishment for the Soul this Lent
Even in this most challenging year, the season of Lent is still a wonderful time for reflection and prayer as we prepare for the joy of Easter. 

As is now traditional, on the Fridays of Lent, the Knights of Saint Columbanus invite you to join them on the Drumcree Parish YouTube channel for 30 minutes of peaceful reflection before the Blessed Sacrament.   

Occurring after the Friday evening 7pm Mass, our quiet reflection and prayer will be centred on the Sunday Gospel stories we will hear on the journey to Easter. 

We extend a very warm welcome to all to join us and hope you will take the opportunity to 'go on' something this Lent.
