The Parish of Balbriggan
Incorporating Balbriggan, Balrothery & Balscadden
“God is light; In him there is no darkness...”
[1 John 1:5]
We would like to extend a warm welcome to all visitors to our parish website.
We hope you will find the information informative and useful. Please feel welcome to participate in any or all of the events planned.
Balbriggan Parish incorporates the areas of Balbriggan, Balrothery and Balscadden. Our church of Sts Peter and Paul was built in 1842 while our church in Balscadden - The Church of the Assumption - was built in 1819. Both churches have been restored to a very high standard in recent years thanks to the hard work, commitment and generosity of all concerned.
Our Parish reflects the diversity that is Ireland in the 21st century. Peoples from many parts of the world come to worship and all are encouraged to participate in some way in Parish life. A real sense of community has been maintained despite the many changes that have occurred in our Parish in recent years. The generosity and openness of the people of Balbriggan is still present today.
Our website is an introduction to our Parish. We extend a warm welcome to all to join in our prayer and efforts, as followers of Jesus Christ, to bring the Gospel message to each other and to the wider Community.
