Dear Parishioners,
The idea of community in the Christian context finds its origins in the scriptures. We are told in the Acts of the Apostles that “the early Christians in meeting together supported each other and shared everything in common”.
Here in this parish of Kill, Ardclough and Johnstown we are constantly striving to build up an active, caring Christian Community. A large number of people are involved but we are always in need of more active support and help. Please don’t hesitate to contact us through the parish office for more information.
I would like to wish you and your family peace and contentment and that your time living in our community will be happy and fulfilled.
Willie O’Byrne P.P
