Welcome to our Parish

Welcome to the parish of Clane & Rathcoffey. We are an ever growing community here in North Kildare, Ireland. We seek to journey together and accompany each other at all moments of life’s journey responding to our Christian calling to love God and our neighbour. Our two beautiful churches are places of prayer, reflection and hope. Our Parish Centre, hall and Catholic Schools are places of learning, growth and community building.

We welcome you to join us in prayer and to volunteer with our many parish groups. Our parish website and Web Camera keep us connected daily to a wider community and world. Welcome to our parish family here in Clane and Rathcoffey.
