Welcome to the Website of St. Vincent de Paul Parish, Marino, Dublin, Ireland.  We are a parish of the Catholic Archdiocese of Dublin.

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.

“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 Reconciliation/First Communion:  We have completed registration for children whose families wish them to celebrate these Sacraments in 2024. We had our Enrolment Mass on Sunday 22nd October, when the children promised to: talk to Jesus everyday, come along to our preparation Masses and try to live like Jesus by being loving & kind. Their families promised to help them with their promises!

Our next Mass together will be celebrated on Palm Sunday, March 24th at 12.30pm when we will be remembering Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem at the start of what we now call ‘Holy Week’. Please keep the children and their families in your prayers.

Here is a photo from our Mass on Sun 26th November: Ali Joe Bear sits in the middle of a sea of crowns brought by the First Communicants for Jesus, for the Feast of Christ the King!


CONFIRMATION: Our Confirmation journey with this year’s Confirmation candidates from our Parish Schools has come to an end with our Confirmation celebrations on March 1st and March 8th. We pray, that as these young people grow to maturity, they will remember to draw on the gifts of the Holy Spirit which they received on Confirmation day.

On Pentecost Sunday, May 19th at 12.30pm Mass, we will celebrate Confirmation with the 11 young people from Gracepark Educate Together and from Drumcondra National School who are preparing each week with our Parish Catechist and we ask you to keep them in your prayers as they prepare to receive the Holy Spirit.



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.

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.


AOCTS - Assembly Of Catholic Ordinaries Of The Holy Land

‘Since he is not the God of disorder but of peace’ (1 Co4 14,33)

The Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem has called for prayers for peace in the Middle East.

Prayer for peace

Lord Jesus Christ, look with mercy upon the land that was your earthly home and which is once again struck by violence, hatred and death. Receive the decesased into your presence.                                                        Comfort those who mourn, are wounded or forced to flee their homes.    Be close to all who are full of fear and despair.  You are our peace and the light of the nations, put an end to the spiral of terror and suffering in the Holy Land and in the whole Middle East.    Let justice and peace flourish at the holy sites. You are our refuge, let the people be safe in your love.  Have mercy on us and on our time. AMEN


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 that we 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.
