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)’

Hospital Visitation by Clergy
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.
