Welcome to St Michael's Catholic Church

a Catholic Christian community under the patronage of St. Michael the Archangel with the gospel of Jesus Christ at the centre of our worship and belief. We are in the Catholic Diocese of Ferns in the south east corner of Ireland, almost co-extensive with County Wexford. The parish is served by two churches, St. Michael's Church in Gorey town and St. Kevin's Church in Tara Hill.

We strive, through our parish organisation, to do in memory of Jesus what he requested us to do - to repent and believe, to love and forgive, to care for the needy - and to find strength to do this at the table of His Word and the table of the Eucharist.

If you are not already an active member of our church, consider sharing in what we have to offer. All are welcome - the saint and the sinner - in our midst.

Rev. William Howell, Parish Priest.
