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.
