Website Welcome

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.

Tom Noone P.P.

CONFIRMATION – the next Mass in our journey of preparation for Confirmation will be celebrated via the web at 12.30pm this Sunday, 24th. The hymns, prayers and readings are available here (The church will open for private prayer at the slightly later time of 2pm)

We have moved from the Christmas season & are now in Ordinary Time. “Ordinary Time isnt meant to be ordinary at all! Rightly understood, it is a time not only to rest from what has passed but also to prepare for what is to come. There is nothing ordinary about a life that has been touched by the reality of God becoming man”.(Quote from Rachel Bulman) And Here is an explanation of ‘ordinary’ time and of what happens at Mass on ‘ordinary’ Sundays.

Thought for the new year
We are at the start of the new year and beginning again, an invitation to look in two directions. What happened for me in the last year, both in my ordinary life and in my life as a believer, a person of faith? For what do I ask forgiveness? For what do I give thanks? We also look forward and the new beginning gives us a chance to start again on the Way of Discipleship. Both thanksgiving and renewal are to be found in today’s readings. The Gospel is an invitation to wake up, to keep watch, to live fully the present moment under God, in whom we live and move and have our being.

Prayer
Wake us up, O God, at the start of a new year and rouse us from the
slumber of the everyday that we may recognise you in every moment
and in every person
