Welcome to the website of Upper Creggan Parish – and thank you for finding us.  In this era of ever growing means of communication, our website aims to keep all members of our parish community, past and present; those here at home and those who have travelled to far-off shores; and our many friends, fully informed and up-dated on many aspects of parish life, ministries and services.  In particular, we hope it will enable the sick and housebound and our many young emigrés to stay in touch with parish life through the weekly news sheet and other regular information updates.

For quite some years now all liturgies at our three parish churches are broadcast on radio.  The website is an additional tool to help all whose lives are already busy to stay in touch with YOUR Parish. 

Enjoy your time looking around our website and if you like what you see or find it useful, please come back again soon.

Until then, may God keep us all true to Him, as together we seek to make His Kingdom come.

Let us pray for one another

Let us care for one another




All of us are specialists in crucifying others to save ourselves. Jesus, instead, allowed himself to be crucified, to teach us not to shift evil onto others.
Pope Francis, 01/03/2021

This haste, this everything right now, does not come from God. If we get worked up about the right now, we forget what remains forever: we follow the passing clouds and lose sight of the sky.

Pope Francis, 16/02/2021
