On behalf of the Parishioners, Religious and Clergy of Drumcree Parish, I welcome you to our website. Thank you for joining us.

Perhaps you have gone online to learn more about the Parish you live in – welcome neighbour. You may come from further afield
and simply want to know something about Drumcree Parish – I hope that your visit will transform distance into friendship.

Maybe you wish to access information about our Catholic Faith; the celebration of the Sacraments; or some of the many organisations that are active in our Parish.

Whatever the reason for your visit, I trust that you find it worthwhile. I pray that the time you spend on the website will assist you in your journey through life.


Very Rev Michael O’Dwyer PP VF



On Sunday 10th May parishioners gathered for a special evening with the Jesuit fathers and Presentation and Assumption sisters to pray for them and give thanks to them for choosing to consecrate their lives to God in this special way.

We had prayer before the Blessed Sacrament and members of St Joseph's Young Priests Society brought forward various symbols that represented each community or the characteristics of religious life.

Afterwards parishioners gathered with our religious priests and sisters in our pastoral centre for tea and refreshments.

A great video, featuring Rev. Mr Aidan McCann (Deacon for Armagh Archdiocese), examining the vocations situation in Ireland today. Definetly worth a watch.

Hospital Visitation by Clergy
From 1st May, due to the Data Protection Act and the Common Law Duty of Confidentiality, hospitals are no longer able to provide visiting Clergy with a list of those in Hospital. Therefore, if you would like us to visit someone in Hospital, you are asked to give their name and exact location in the Hospital so we may visit, otherwise, this will not be possible.
