WELCOME TO ST PATRICK’S AND ST BRIGID’S GLENARIFFE

Our beautiful Chapel is host to three of the most delightful windows to be found anywhere in the Glens of Antrim according to Frank Rogers. They are of St Patrick, The Risen Christ and St Brigid and are the work of Dublin artist Michael Healy. There is also a replica of the Ardclinis Crozier at the entrance.

 

 

 

Welcome

Thanks for stopping by to visit our website. I hope it will offer you some help as to who we are and where we are situated in the Diocese of Down and Connor.
Should you continue on to read our history, you will see that we are a small parish which was once a district of the old parish of Layde.

As Catholics we live in a time when religious beliefs are being challenged and eroded. Secular values are replacing, the once treasured sureties of our faith. Religion in many countries is almost superfluous and sadly in some countries, Christianity is being persecuted to the point of extinction.  At the same time other religions are being imposed at the peril of one’s life.

With help from the “Living Church” movement in the diocese we are slowly building sustainable Faith communities.  And so in a small parish, such as our own, the role of every person is so important.

Facing the challenge of the future we have chosen the exhortation of the Prophet Isaiah:

“Do not be afraid,
I have redeemed you
I have called you by your name,
You are mine”. (Isaiah 42:2)

Called by name in Baptism, may we value our life and our own unique contribution to sowing the seeds of our present day faith, in the parish of Gleann Airbh.
