Old St. Mary's Church
Located in Irish Street on the way down to the shore, St Mary's chapel is a distinctive modern design, deceptively larger than the first impression of the exterior would suggest.
This present chapel, opened in 1975 is next to the former church built in 1861 which is still in use as a parish community hall. That church in turn replaced the original small church of 1831, which had accommodated up to 180 people.
The church was previously part of Kilmore parish and only recently established (1994) as a parish in its own right, with Fr Sean Cahill, a former parishioner, as the first parish priest.
The parish is a warm Christian community, growing along with the wider Killyleagh society, and we welcome you to visit and share in the life of Christ among us.
O God, the Shepherd and Ruler of all Your faithful people, mercifully look upon Your servant Pope Francis, whom You have chosen as the chief Shepherd to preside over Your Church. We beg You to help him edify, both by word and example, those over whom he has charge, that he may reach everlasting life together with the flock entrusted to him.
Through Christ our Lord.
