In October 2000, the Kilmore Diocesan Congress took place at St. Patrick’s College, Cavan.   This meeting of representatives of all the parishes and the clergy led to the setting up of a Pastoral Centre.

The Pastoral Plan was launched in 2002. On the 23rd June 2003, renovation works began on the old boarding wing of St. Patrick’s College costing in the region of €2.5 million. This now houses the Kilmore Diocesan Pastoral Centre.


Along with the renovation of the front part of the College, the Chapel was also completely renovated. As from the photo, the Chapel was tastefully decorated and is an important part of the Pastoral Centre as a place to pray and to  come into the presence of God in silence and peace.
