DOWN AND CONNOR PIONEER ASSOCIATION

Do you feel we live in a drinks culture? Are you concerned about alcohol abuse? Are you thinking of giving up alcohol for Lent?  If so, we invite you to take a Temporary Pledge with the Pioneer Association, say a short prayer daily and offer up your decision not to take alcohol for the sake of someone else, perhaps someone who is living with addiction. You can make a difference.  Register your pledge with the Down and Connor Pioneer office on 9089 4070 or email dandcpioneers@gmail.com.  Please give your name, address and phone number and you will be sent a Pledge Certificate which includes the daily prayer.

 

 

Welcome to our Parish Web Site. The Parish of St. Colmcilles is located in East Belfast and our church, is on the Upper Newtownards Road. We are approximately 2 miles from the city centre.

The purpose of the Website is to give our visitors, and every member of our parish family, information about the times we celebrate the liturgy of the Church and also to inform people about the various ministries, groups and organisations in the parish; what they do, where and when they meet and whom to contact if you would like to know more about them.
