The Collect for The Sunday before Advent The Kingship of Christ

Eternal Father, whose Son Jesus Christ ascended to the throne of heaven that he might rule over all things as Lord and King: Keep the Church in the unity of the Spirit and in the bond of peace, and bring the whole created order to worship at his feet, who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Daily Prayer from Oremus


Welcome to the website of St. Peter’s Church of Ireland (Anglican/Episcopalian), which is situated in Drogheda, Co. Louth, and is part of the Diocese of Armagh. St. Peter’s stands on a site where for over eight centuries, Christian disciples have gathered for worship. Whether you visit us via the medium of the Internet, or perhaps one day in person, you are very welcome as together with us, in our generation, we offer our worship to the God of all generations and of all future hope.

In this website you’ll find a little about who we are, what we believe, the history of our church and news of happenings and events in our community.

There is also a section dealing with genealogy – the registers of St. Peter’s go back to the year 1653, shortly after Oliver Cromwell’s “visit” to our town.

After a devastating arson attack on the church in 1999 you will find information on the restoration project which followed and the tremendous opportunities for service to the community grasped by the parish following this seemingly mindless act.

The navigation buttons at the top of each page will take you to the various sections of the website. The Church of Ireland cross at the top left of each page will always return you to this home page.
