Holy Ghost Parish

The 7th June 1965, witnessed the opening service of the Church of the Holy Ghost and in 1967, the Diocese of Dublin was invited to undertake the staffing of the Parish.

In July 2005 The Holy Ghost Parish changed it's undertaking and is now staffed and managed by the Northampton Diocese. Our current Parish Priest, Monsignor Kevin McGinnell joined us from Our Lady of Lourdes, Coffee Hall, Milton Keynes. Also working closely alongside our priests is Sister Teresa Harrington, and Sister Margaret Connerely.

One of the most noticeable features of the Holy Ghost over the years is the broad spectrum of nationalities, backgrounds, trades and talents so abundant among its parishioners.

The door of the presbytery at 33 Westbourne Road is always welcoming and open to all.

Parish Centre

On Pentecost Sunday 1974, the 10th anniversary of the opening of the Church, the Parish Centre was opened: a centre which today hosts many events for our thriving community. The qualities of the people are channelled into providing a rich and energetic parish, reflected in the vast number of groups, mirroring their depth of commitment and sense of belonging.

Events held at the centre are:

Every Sunday night Music, Dancing, Take your Pick & Bingo

THURSDAY CLUB – meets each Thursday lunchtime for bingo, social and entertainment. All welcome.

The Halls and various bars are available for hire for functions, especially to parishioners.
