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

News and Notes

October Talks

Our October Talks series begins on Saturday 6th October with a heartwarming introduction to the stories that Jesus loved: this is an introduction by Jessie Rogers to the Old Testament, a text we’re sometimes even afraid of. On the following Saturday (13th October) Angela Harding (best known for her role as Mary in RTE’s period drama Strumpet City) will lead a workshop on reading techniques at Mass: this aims to help our readers get to the heart of the matter in reading Scripture in public. The third Saturday (20th October) focuses on Pope Francis’s quiet revolution in the Church: Fr. Gerry O’Hanlon SJ will propose how this is going to change things in Ireland. And finally, on Saturday 27th October Fr. Brendan Comerford SJ will show us what Pope Francis means by “discernment”. All of these mornings begin at 10am sharp. There will be a coffee break and the morning ends with optional soup and sandwiches. A small offering is requested. Bethany Bereavement Support Group Launch of a new Bethany Bereavement Support Group at Gardiner Street. The death of someone close touches us to the core and leaves us hurt and wounded. Bethany offers a listening ear and help on the road of bereavement. To launch this new group at Gardiner Street we will have a PUBLIC TALK given by Nuala Casey who will describe her own route to healing and acceptance. 7.30pm Wednesday 19th September at Gardiner Street.

Junior Gospel Choir

The Junior Gospel Choir will sing at the 12.30 Mass on the 3rd Sunday of October (21st October). This is a new venture, launched last year and supported by Larkin Community College and Gardiner Street Primary School.

The Gardiner Street Gospel Mass starts a new season this Sunday 9th September at the usual time of 7.30pm. The Gospel Choir has performed to great acclaim at the Pastoral Congress for the World Meeting of Families, at the Festival of Families and at the Papal Mass.

Gardiner Street Card

PS. Have you seen the new Gardiner Street pop-up card on sale in the shop? Beautiful greeting card with a pop up model of our beautiful church façade. (Find shop through the doors into the Pope Francis corridor just before you leave the Church to your right or as you approach the church, up the steps to the left of the church and in the door)

Coeliac or Gluten Intolerant

If you are Coeliac or Gluten intolerant and wish to receive communion please come up to the left side of the Altar at the sign of Peace and the celebrant will offer you the Precious Blood of Christ. We are not currently aware how many of our parishioners are Gluten intolerant or Coeliac. If you are, would you mind letting us know and we can review our arrangements to make it simpler to receive communion
