Welcome!

 

 

 

 

Our mission at this Dublin city centre Jesuit parish is that people find strength, light and consolation in our church. We offer a heartfelt welcome to all and and the support of a lively faith community whose source of meaning and purpose in life comes through friendship with Jesus Christ.

We feel special inspiration comes through the missionary spirit of St Francis Xavier our patron, the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuits, and the holiness of the Venerable John Sullivan the saintly healer whose remains are venerated here.

If you are new to the parish, we extend a special welcome to you and pray that you will find a warm home here. Please introduce yourself to one of the priests after Mass or call into the office.

Fr Gerry Clarke SJ
Parish Priest

Pope Francis

Prayer Intentions for January

That Christians, and other religious minorities in Asian countries, may be able to practise their faith in full freedom.

As Pope Francis invites us to pray for Christians and religious minorities in Asia, we might want to remember this diversity of people and the contexts in which they live. Furthermore, we pray that this diversity among people will be interpreted as a sign of God’s abundant blessing, leading all people to mutual respect and sincere dialogue. As we pray for religious freedom for Christians in a place far from us, we might also want to ask ourselves how we relate to persons of different faiths right here where we are, if we too welcome them with respect and a desire for dialogue.
- Mark Aloysius SJ, extracted from Living Prayer
