Hello, you are very welcome to our website. Whether you are already a church member or a visitor, we invite you to look around - you will find much to interest you!
If you have any comments you can use the form on the "Contact us" page. St. Macartin's Church of Ireland Cathedral has a prominent position in the main street of Enniskillen, the largest town in County Fermanagh. The church has a long and distinguished history, much of which you will find on this website. If you know details that we haven't recorded, tell us and we will publish them!

We are somewhat surprised that there are church members who regularly use the Internet but are unaware that this website exists! So if you find it interesting and/or useful, please spread the word around - the more visitors we have the more encouragement there is to keep it alive.

Dear Parishioners and Friends around the world,
Each year holds the promise of Spring, a time of refreshing and renewal; a time to move from
lying dormant to new life. Winter can be a time to sit and be still before the Lord while Spring
is a time to be awakened. The birds begin to sing and the bulbs and plants are ready to begin their
growth. We cannot see the growth of their root system, because it is underground, but soon little shoots will begin to push up through the soil and even through snow in some areas. Then, flowers will begin to emerge and produce a beautiful array of colours that our Heavenly Father has created. Year after year, God reminds us, through Spring, how He creates, sustains and provides new life continually for us! Likewise the seeds of faith that have been planted in our hearts, hidden like the underground bulbs, also need to blossom into something beautiful, but they can only do so if ‘fed and watered’ with spiritual food. We need to spend time in God’s presence and allow Him to grow within us so that we can outwardly display His love to those around us.
The coming springtime holds the promise of new life. May you be reminded of God’s presence in your life as the birds begin to sing, as buds appear on the trees, and as those little flowers begin to appear from the ground. It is the desire of our Heavenly Father for you to have a new feeling of delight in your heart, and to bring forth new growth in your life as you spend time in His presence. For our own parishioners, there are plenty of opportunities in our Cathedral for encouraging Christian growth in the coming days – three services each Sunday (take your choice) and two mid-week services (that will accommodate those working on a Sunday). There are two Pilgrim courses already up and running and two more beginning! See page 13 of our church magazine.
It is my earnest prayer that you will take up these opportunities for Christian growth in your life, be faithful to God this coming year, that you will know His presence with you and that He will abundantly bless you. Yours very sincerely,
Kenneth R J Hall
Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. (Matthew 6: 28-29)
