Mass Times

 

The foundation stone for our parish church was blessed by His Holiness, Blessed John Paul II on the occasion of his visit to Maynooth in 1979. The church opened in April 1980. The church is built in the shape of a dove. Its patron, St. Colmcille, is known as the “Dove of the Church”.

The parish is the presence of the Church in a given territory, an environment for hearing God’s word, for growth in the Christian life, for dialogue, proclamation, charitable outreach, worship and celebration.

In all its activities the parish encourages and trains its members to be evangelizers.It is a community of communities, a sanctuary where the thirsty come to drink in the midst of their journey, and a centre of constant missionary outreach. (Pope Francis, The Joy of the Gospel, November, 2013)
