Our Parish

St Malachy's Church is located in the main street of Edenhope.  We welcome all visitors to the Parish.

We are very proud of our Catholic Primary School, St Malachy's. It is situated around the corner from the church, on the shores of Lake Wallace — which really is a lake again, now that wet winters have returned!

The Edenhope parish also has church communities in Apsley, Goroke and Minimay. Each of these places celebrates Mass at regular intervals.

We work in corporation with our neighbouring parishes to the south: Harrow, Coleraine and Casterton.
