The Operation of Pastoral Centre

The Centre is staffed and managed by a dedicated team of volunteers aided by a small number of FAS personnel. A board of management oversees the operation of the Centre and reports to the parish council.


The Pastoral Centre was conceived as a means of fostering the Christian Faith in the Parish of Dunshaughlin and Culmullen and of enhancing the development of a deeper sense of community and of shared Christian values in the Parish.

Blessed by his Lordship Bishop Michael Smith on Sunday 6th December 2009, the Centre was officially opened by her Excellency President Mary McAleese on 27th January 2010.
