Set in the idyllic country side of South Down the historic Parishes of Kilmore and Inch serve the rural communities in and around Crossgar and all the way down to the Quoile River and Inch Abbey on the outskirts of Downpatrick. We have been a joint parish for the past thirty six years.
As a community of faith we seek to follow the commandments of Jesus to love God and our neighbours. Through our worship and all our social and ministry activities we aim to build a sense of community and lovingly support all those with whom we come into contact. In being faithful to the Gospel we hope to play our part in the extension of Christ’s Kingdom both at home and further afield. We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your family!
