Welcome to our Parish

Our parish aim is to be a vibrant Christian Community. We want to welcome and involve all members of our parish, so that we may all “have life and live it to the full.” We are committed to the Gospel of Christ, to living it ourselves and to sharing it with others.

There are many groups and individuals involved in a variety of services and agencies contributing to the life of our parish and building up the Body of Christ.

Our parish church is the Cathedral of the Assumption; it is the cathedral church of the Diocese of Kildare and Leighlin. We are glad to welcome all the people of the diocese to join with us at diocesan celebrations. Our Bishop is Denis Nulty. There are approx. 2,560 homes in our parish, that is a population of 8,000.

We extend a warm invitation to all parishioners, both to those who have been here for some time and to newcomers, to participate in the life of the Parish. We hope that you will find these pages are some benefit to you. We pray that the joy of the Lord may be your strength.

Ruairí O’Domhnaill Adm.
