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.

St. Patrick’s Church, Crossmaglen

Wednesday 10.30 a.m. to 12 noon

Thursday 6.00 p.m. to 7.00 p.m.


Everyone welcome, not just rota members.



God does not give up.
You are close to His heart, you who do not yet know the beauty of His love, you who have not yet welcomed Jesus as the centre of your life, you who cannot overcome your sin.

For God, you are that little coin that the Lord seeks without pause. He wants to tell you that you are precious and unique in His eyes.
No one can take you place in the heart of God.

Pope Francis, 19 + 20/04/2021

 Christ be with me, Christ within me,

Christ behind me, Christ before me,

Christ beside me, Christ to win me,

Christ to comfort and restore me.

 

Christ beneath me, Christ above me,

Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,

Christ in hearts of all who love me,

Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.

(St. Patrick's Breastplate)
