St.Patrick's Pastoral Centre

Pastoral Centre
Pastoral Centre Exterior

St. Patrick's Pastroral Centre was built primarily for social activities related to the churches that make up the Parish of Lisburn. The facilities at the Centre are not however restricted to parish activities and it is part of the centre's policy to reach out to the wider community.

Since the Centre was officially opened in November 2009, it continues to be successfully used for an increasingly wide range of functions and now plays an important part in the social life of the parish and Lisburn.

The hall is available for Christenings, birthdays, family celebrations, weddings, wedding breakfasts and funerals at very competitive rates.
