Welcome to the Website of St. Vincent de Paul Parish, Marino, Dublin, Ireland. We are a parish of the Catholic Archdiocese of Dublin.
We are a north side Dublin community of 5,000 homes with a population of approximately 13,000 people. We are a Parish with a vibrant community, made up of “old” Marino people and relative “newcomers” from all walks of life.
We aim to live out our Mission Statement: “THE CATHOLIC PARISH OF MARINO WILL FOSTER A VIBRANT, CARING COMMUNITY THAT IS LOVING, WELCOMING AND SUPPORTIVE OF ALL”
Our mission is to grow in the image of Christ through the Holy Spirit, to be formed by the Word and our prayer, to use our gifts to welcome those who are here and reach out to those who are not. We invite you to join us as partners in the mission. Together, let us get to know Christ better and to make Him better known.
May God Bless you wherever you are and thank you for exploring our website.

CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK will be celebrated from 22nd – 29th January. This year the theme is ‘Catholic Schools: Walking together in Faith and Love’. As part of our celebration of all that is good about the Catholic schools in this parish, we will be having a prayer service in the church on Thursday 26th at 11.30am. We will be joined by Scoil Mhuire and St Vincent de Paul Senior Girls’ and will be celebrating the faith and love of grandparents on that day. As the church will be pretty full, we invite parishioners to join us in prayer via the webcam.
THE FAITHFUL DEPARTED……………..
“The great mistake of many people…is to imagine that those whom death has taken leave us? They do not leave us. They remain! Where are they? In darkness? Oh no! Its is we who are in darkness. We do not see them but they see us……I have often reflected upon the surest comfort for those who mourn. It is this: a firm faith in the real and continued presence of our loved one. Death has not destroyed them nor carried them away. They are not even absent but living near us, transfigured: having lost in their glorious change, no delicacy of their souls, no tenderness of their hearts nor especial prefernce in their affection. On the contrary, they have, in depth and in fervour of devotion, grown larger a hundredfold…those who on earth were only ordinary Christians become perfect…those who were good become sublime” (Karl Rahner)
First Communions: Our journey of preparation for the Sacraments of First Communion and First Reconciliation has begun. Information Meetings for parents have been held & we have had our 1st 4 Masses. Our next Mass with First Communion families will be celebrated on Sunday 5th March.
CONFIRMATION: A new school year and a new group of boys and girls getting ready for Confirmation! Information meetings for parents and Confirmation candidates have been held and we have had our first 2 Masses together. Our next Mass together will be celebrated on Sunday 22nd January at 12.30pm. We have also had the first half of our ‘Nua Origins’ film series together (thanks to Scripture Union) & have enjoyed our pre-Confirmation retreats with NET Ministries. Please keep the Confirmation candidates and their families in your prayers.
UNIVERSAL SYNOD 2021- 2023 – DUBLIN DIOCESE SYNOD REPORT AVAILABLE
The Diocesan Synod Report has been published and has been sent to the Irish Bishops Conference and will contribute to the “Synod on Synodality” in Rome in October 2023. The Irish Church will continue to prepare for a National Synod in three years time.
Almost 13,000 people engaged in the process across 173 parishes. There was remarkable convergence between our parish report and the diocesan report. Four major trends emerged:
The importance of community belonging.
The role of women.
The place of young people.
The inspirational leadership of Pope Francis.
Copies of the full report will be available at the back of the church or by clicking here.

TAKE A LITTLE TIME OUT TO REST IN THE LORD……..
Prayer after Communion
Lord, we are grateful; now may we be generous. Lord, we have been nourished; now may we nourish one another. May we be bread for one another, the bread of compassion, the bread of encouragement, the bread of life.
A PRAYER FOR WORN-TORN PARTS OF THE WORLD (from Clonard Monastery, Belfast)
- For those who are fleeing: sanctuary,
- For those who are staying: safety,
- For those who are fighting: peace,
- For those whose hearts are breaking: comfort,
- For those who see no future: hope.
Prayer for Vocations: Archbishop Farrell is asking for people and priests to pray for vocations to the Priesthood and Religious Life on a regular basis. ‘As you are well aware the need is great, so let’s answer God’s call and pray that the Lord of the harvest will send labourers into his harvest’. A new Director and Assistant Director of Vocations have been appointed for the archdiocese, Fr Seamus McEntee and Fr Bill O Shaughnessy.
