The Rector writes ....

Dear Friend


It is our joy to welcome you most warmly to our parish web page. The Church of Ireland traces its roots back to the ancient Celtic Church,  to the earliest days of Christianity in this country. It is also part of the worldwide sisterhood of Churches -  the Anglican Communion. We are proud of our heritage as a Church and of our tradition of unbroken worship here in Bantry. 


We welcome you to our worship and invite you to participate. We remind you that Holy Communion is open to all Baptised Christians who desire the Sacrament of the Church. May God be with you on your journey,  may you find refreshment and peace  and may the peace of the Lord be always with you.


Blessed be God for ever.
