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 May

The Pope’s Prayer for May is for the Laity: The laity are a fundamental part of the Church. Our commitment, our testimony, and our service, especially in the most difficult situations, help to spread the truth of the Gospel.

“Lay people are on the front line of the life of the Church. We need their testimony regarding the truth of the Gospel and their example of expressing their faith by practicing solidarity.

Let us give thanks for the lay people who take risks, who are not afraid and who offer reasons for hope to the poorest, to the excluded, to the marginalized.

Let us pray together this month that the lay faithful may fulfill their specific mission, the mission that they received in Baptism, putting their creativity at the service of the challenges of today's world. ”

CHILD SAFEGUARDING

Life is so hectic that sometimes we use our cars because it is easier... but take time to think about the journeys you are likely to make next week. Can you leave your car at home and use the bus or Dublin Bikes or walk? It is more environmentally friendly, good for your health and may cost you less. Think Green!
