Find your parish

In this section of the website we hope to offer resources that will be of assistance to Priests, parishes, Liturgy Groups, schools and Teachers. Many people engaged in leading others in prayer are always searching for ideas and texts that will help in their endeavour. It is hoped that over time this section will grow and become a veritable treasure trove for anybody engaged in ministry throughout the diocese and beyond.

If you have a liturgy or service or prayer that has been effective in your experience we would be pleased to share it with others. We would also welcome catechetical resources and ideas that would be of help to teachers and parents who are working to hand on faith to others. You can email your contribution to communications@killaloediocese.ie
