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

Great People, Great Stories, Come and Listen

Armagh Diocesan Vocations Team have organised two special evenings which have been entitled: “Great people, great stories, come and listen!” The evenings will take place on: Thursday 23 April in The Synod Hall, Armagh & Wednesday 29 April in The Parochial Centre, Fairhill Rd, Cookstown at 8pm.

The evenings will include music and prayer and two special testimonies will be given.

Brother Ronan Lennon and Martina Purdy will be the guest speakers in Armagh. Brother Ronan has been a religious brother with St John of God Brothers for the last number of years. He has worked a lot with the sick and he’s the former Provincial of the Order and Martina is a former journalist with the BBC and she’s now a postulant with the Sisters of Adoration and Reparation in Belfast.

Deacon Kevin Duffy and Sr Fiona Galligan will be the guest speakers in Cookstown. Deacon Kevin is married with two children and he was ordained a permanent Deacon for the Archdiocese of Armagh last year and he’s currently ministering in the parish of Magherafelt. Sr Fiona has been a Sister of Mercy for the last number of years and she works as a Chaplain in Craigavon Area Hospital and St John of God Hospice, Newry.

After the great stories are shared on the evenings, there will be an opportunity for questions and reflection and refreshments will be served.

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.
