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.

We ask God to help us become more aware of the world
around us, to help us to see the beauty of his creation, to
care for our common home, to watch over our planet, to
protect it and to share the beauty of creation with all

Bless all who worship you,

almighty God, from the rising

in your mercy…

A Prayer for Thanks

Thanks – a word that brings us alive,
for what once was can always give life,

Thanks – a word that keeps us humble,
for we know that we depend on others,

Thanks – a word…
