We hope everyone enjoyed the Summer holidays along with its wonderful weather! By now our Parish organisations have resumed activities and we look forward to the new season!

BUS PASS EXPLORERS: Our popular group of a certain age group has enjoyed days away during the spring and summer – in Armagh for “an afternoon on the Mall”, Enniskillen, Castlerock, Whitehead and the Shrouds of the Somme Exhibition in Belfast – on a monthly voyage of discovery of some of our finest tourist attractions.

As we as a Parish look to the future, we present a wide variety and a busy programme of worship and parish activities with something for all ages and tastes! Check us out for regular updates on our website and Derryloran Facebook!
