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.

Parish Priest

Autumn Activities

Scripture Workshops

with  Fr Kieran O’Mahony OSA (Augustinian Friar, Scripture Scholar)

Following his very successful and well-attended series of talks on the Sunday readings during lent, Fr. Kieran O’Mahony returns to Gardiner Street for two seminars related to the readings for Sundays of Year B, which begins with the first Sunday of Advent, and during which we read Mark’s Gospel and St Paul’s Letter to the Corinthians (among other readings).  Fr Kieran’s talks are always lively and thought-provoking and will enrich greatly our understanding of St Paul and St Mark’s Gospel.  The format for each morning will involve some solid input about the authors and then a chance to engage with an individual text.  There will be a break for tea and coffee.

The Ongoing Story with St Mark

Saturday 28th October Registration open at 9.00am. Workshop 9.45am – 1pm

  • Registration
  • Opening input on St Mark
  • Coffee/Tea Break
  • Individual/Group work on a chosen text
  • Questions and final input on St Mark and his writings

God’s word is unpredictable in its power.  The Gospel speaks of a seed which, once sown, grows by itself, even as the farmer sleeps. (Mark 4:26-29).  Fr. Kieran O’Mahony explores the depths of Mark’s Gospel which is the focus of the new liturgical year beginning with Advent.  Discover the themes and concerns of Mark’s community and allow your own life to be written into the ongoing story.


The Places Blessed John Sullivan called Home

with Colette McCarthy

Saturday 21st October 9.30am – 2pm (Tour starts 9.15am at No. 32 Fitzwilliam Place or join it at Trinity Church Killiney at 11.45am)
A tour of places which Blessed John knew as home in Dublin and Killiney: No 32 Fitzwilliam Place Dublin 2; Holy Trinity Church, Killiney; Undercliff, Killiney; Ancient Church of Killiney.  Following her work on the committee which prepared the Beatification of Fr. John Sullivan SJ in May, Colette was keen to follow up with a tour of the places that touched the heart of Fr. John.  His home was a warm and lively environment for his growth but tragedy struck when his family was on holiday in Killiney with the death by drowning of his brother Robert.  Holy Trinity Church houses some special memorials to this event and there will be time for a quiet prayer.
