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)’

Online Donations

In these uncertain times, the Archdiocese of Armagh has implemented an Online Donation Portal to allow parishioners to donate towards the running of Parishes.

The Parish of Drumcree will be a part of this platform, so parishioners can donate using this portal.

The Portal can be accessed by clicking this link

You can also read a walk-through of the process - click here to view the walk-through document

Parishioners can now donate to the Parish in 2 ways:
  1. Use the Online Portal as described above

  2. Put your donation in an envelope with your name, address and the date for which you are donating (usually a Sunday) and post this through the letterbox of the Parish Office or either Parochial House on the Moy Road.
Why do we ask for your name and address? We ask for these details so we can claim Gift Aid back on your donations - if you're signed up for the scheme in the Parish of Drumcree.
