Our Parish & Location

St John’s Catholic Parish consists of a city area and two rural areas, Dunmore and Johnswell – each with its own church. The main church, St John’s, is situated opposite MacDonagh Shopping Centre and the Railway Station on the Dublin Road (N77).
The parish is administered by the priests who form the Parish Leadership Team, and by the Parish Pastoral Council, made up of priests and lay people working together for the spiritual and material good of all members of the parish.

As we welcome you into our family of brothers and sisters of Jesus Christ in St John’s parish, we believe that we all have the same common Father in heaven. We recall the words of Jesus: “Anyone who does the will of my father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.” (Matthew 12:50)

It is our privilege to assure you of God’s love for you. We hope that in our parish you will grow in love for Him and that you will experience in our community something of that love.

Whenever we may be of assistance, please don’t hesitate to ask.
