Welcome to the website for the Catholic Parishes of Kilmore & Killyleagh. Both parishes have a shared history. Kimore and Killyleagh parishes where formally known as the Parish of Inch, Kilmore and Killyleagh later to be known as Kilmore Parish
Nestled in the heart of County Down, stretching from the shores of Strangford Lough at Killyleagh, to Teconnaught, neighbouring the diocese of Dromore. We have three Churches based in Teconnaught, Killyleagh with Crossgar at its centre. Three distinct communities, but united in faith and in our desire to love God, and to love our brothers and sisters of our faith and other faiths
Kilmore Parish embraces the monastic site of Inch Abbey within its boundaries. A holy water font used at the Abbey was donated to a former church 'The Rocks Chapel' and is now to be found at our church in Crossgar.

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.
