Welcome to the Parish of Shrule website

Welcome to Shrule parish website and thank you for visiting. Shrule parish located in the south of county Mayo; is a parish of the diocese of Galway owning to ecclesiastical history. Located on Lough Corrib, the parish stretches inland.

St.Joseph’s , Shrule

The parish has two churches – St. Joseph’s in Shrule village, and a second church – the Church of the Immaculate Conception in Glencorrib. Each has it own distinct identity and proud tradition, which enriches the wider community. Working independently or together, the faith community around these church’s brings what St. Paul wrote to the Corinthians 12:12-13 very much to life;


For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.  For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—and all were made to drink of one Spirit.

Thank you again for visiting our parish website, and if you explore the website, you will quickly realise the parish is an active and engaged community, with a lot happening.

The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.

Numbers 26:25-26
