An extensive consultation is well underway to bring one of the city’s most important and iconic social spaces back into community use.
The St Patrick’s Resource Centre project is an exciting initiative to refurbish and develop the old Parochial Hall located on the Cathedral Road, Armagh. The vision for the project is to create a vibrant, modern building with a range of different facilities which can offer activities and events to bring people of all backgrounds, ages and abilities together in a positive environment.
We are seeking the views of all local people to help support the case for the project and urge everyone to take part in the consultation, as feedback from this consultation will be essential in producing a comprehensive needs based document for the proposed community resource centre. The overall process needs to be completed by Monday the 11th June.

Archbishop Eamon Martin has welcomed the publication today of Gaudete et exsultate, On the call to holiness in today’s world, an Apostolic Exhortation by Pope Francis.
Archbishop Martin said, “I welcome the publication today by Pope Francis of Gaudete et exsultate, an Apostolic Exhortation on the call to holiness in today’s world. One of the great insights of the Second Vatican Council was its teaching on the universal call to holiness, something that is particularly evident in chapter 5 of Lumen Gentium, the Dogmatic Constitution of the Church. In his new publication Pope Francis has reinforced this essential teaching of Vatican II and reinterpreted it for the contemporary world. ‘My modest goal’ says Pope Francis in the Exhortation, ‘is to repropose the call to holiness in a practical way for our own time.’ In emphasising the centrality of holiness being found in following Jesus, the Holy Father also highlights the hallmarks associated with this following of the Lord.”
Archbishop Martin concluded, “The publication of today’s Apostolic Exhortation by Pope Francis is a great opportunity for all of us, lay, ordained and consecrated, to refocus our lives on what is the central point of our faith in Jesus.”
