Welcome

Welcome to the website of St. Cronan’s catholic parish and community in Roscrea, Ireland. Our parish celebrates the Eucharist as the source and summit of the Christian life. To the parish we welcome you and all, young and old, holy and sinners, to experience togetherness with Christ and with one another. In the parish we have people who help in the sacramental life of the community, we have organizations who serve those who need help, spiritual or material and we have prayer groups who help to ask God’s blessing on the life of the community. In the impressive church of St. Cronan, in a lovely valley of trees and flowing water, and in all our churches, we remember the Lord and the great throng of people who worshipped and lived the Christian life in this area of Tipperary, Ireland, and the diocese of Killaloe. We pray that our parish may help parishioners to build on the past and put into practice now and in the future the faith we profess and celebrate.
