WELCOME TO MELLIFONT PARISH WEBSITE

WELCOME to the Mellifont Parish Website.

Parishes are all about welcome. Indeed Saint Peter first uses the word ‘parish’ in scripture, in its Greek form paroika, to describe a place of safety and welcome for sojourners or pilgrims in a foreign land (1 Pt 2:11). Today, a parish is defined not as a place, but as a community of followers of Christ who gather at a particular location or with a particular pastor, to worship together. The gathering is important for we cannot be disciples alone; Jesus always sends his disciples out in pairs and He promises to be with us wherever two or three are gathered in His name. So here in Mellifont Parish, we strive to be what Peter described: a welcoming community of Christ’s followers, a people who gather to give praise to God, to be nourished by His Word and His Body, and to use our gifts in the service of each other. We gather to bear witness to the Gospel of Christ in our lives, and to celebrate God’s love for all.

We hope this website will help you to understand our faith community, and how through our various parish ministries we outreach to modern pilgrims and sojourners: the bereaved, the aged, the marginalised and the needy. Enjoy this website; please explore its pages to learn more about our liturgies, our parish groups, our sacraments, and our faith. Whatever has brought you to this site, we hope you find what you are looking for, and if you are new to our area, you are most welcome to join with us in our parish. Céad míle fáilte. Welcome!
