Welcome to you
Welcome
Wherever you are in the world, I extend to you a Céad Míle Fáilte, a hundred thousand welcomes. I am glad that you have found your way to the website of Waterside and Strathfoyle parishes in the dioceses of Derry. I trust that you find our web site interesting and that you will not only stay a while but also come back regularly.

Our parishes are situated on the east bank of this historic city of Derry. The city has a very rich missionary history going back to the days of Saint Columba after which the parish church gets it's name.

In this new technological generation we want to be faithful to the missionary calling and zeal of those who have gone before - which looks outwards and seeks to offer God's love and compassion to all.

I encourage you to explore our site further and I hope you find it interesting.

Michael Canny
Parish Priest
