ON THIS ROCK

Jesus gave the Church the gift of Saint Peter, the rock on which Jesus builds the Church. Jesus is the cornerstone and Jesus shares the gift of his strength with the Church through the Bishop of Rome. On Divine Mercy Sunday, the Church recognises the holiness of Blessed John Paul II and Blessed John XXIII.

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.
