Welcome to the Athboy Parish Website

We hope that you find this website informative and useful but also enriching spiritually through our prayer space.
Our parish is dedicated to St. James from the earliest times. St. James, a fisherman, was one of the first apostles, is the patron saint of pilgrims. He is represented in a magnificent stained glass window in St. James’ Church, Athboy with his staff, water jug, and satchel. His symbol a cockle shell is pinned to his cloak. In his hands is a representation of our church as he raises it up to God.

We are all on many different roads and paths to the Lord. We pray through the intercession of St James.
