Welcome to Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish!

Apart from providing useful information about the parish, its groups and the various activities, it is our desire to use this website to share our faith with you, providing resources and links for faith development, both personal and family.

We also want to facilitate piety and prayer and hope you will find the Daily Mass Readings (with commentary) helpful.

Since 2008, priests of the Opus Dei Prelature have been entrusted with the pastoral care of Our Lady Queen of Peace. We have included a Daily Message taken from the writings of St Josemaría, Founder of Opus Dei, which gives some insights into his charism.

We would appreciate your feedback. God bless you and please visit us often!

YOUCAT Study Group, Tuesdays 8-9pm (began on 4 October 2016)

There was a good turn out for the first of our study sessions on the YOUCAT, a catechism produced for young people that ‘speaks of our own destiny and so deeply engages every one of us’ (Benedict XVI, Foreword to YOUCAT).

ALL OF US have big questions:    
  • Why did God create us?
  • How can we describe heaven?
  • What does the fall of Adam and Eve have to do with us?
  • Did God will the death of his only Son?
  • Can I be a Christian without believing in Christ’s resurrection?
  • Why does God want there to be a church? 
YOUCAT has the answers. (See useful links - below poster)
YOU are invited to CATCH up by joining our YOUCAT study group every Tuesday, 8-9pm. Even if you have missed the first sessions, it is still possible to join the group.


Annual Mass for the Deceased of the Parish, Sunday, 6 November 2016 at 12 noon

The month of November is traditionally the time of the year when Church liturgy invites us to pray for all those who have passed from this world. It is a particular duty in charity to remember deceased family and friends at this time.

The 12.00 noon Mass on Sunday, 6 November 2016 will be offered for all those we love who have gone before us and especially for members of our parish who have died during the past year. We also include those who have no one to remember them.



Lecture on Jerusalem, 8.15pm on Thursday, 13 October 2016

There was a large attendance at this illustrated talk by Chris Noonan, Chairman (Ireland) of the Saxum Project in the Holy Land.
It gave a very interesting insight into the history and geography of Jerusalem and was an excellent preparation for the proposed parish pilgrimage to the Holy Land, hopefully in 2017.


Bishop of Lodwar (Kenya) celebrated the 12 noon Mass on Sunday 25 September 2016

Bishop Dominic Kimengich of Lodwar, Kenya, whom Fr Fergus met in Nairobi last month (August 2016), celebrated the 12 noon Mass in Our Lady Queen of Peace on Sunday 25 September 2016.
Among other things, Bishop Dominic wished to express his gratitude for all the support our parishioners have given since 2011 to the Queen of Peace Primary School for Girls in Lodwar. Once again, on this occasion, generous donations were made for the project.
The bishop visited us briefly in the Spring of 2011 and we were very happy to welcome him back to our parish.

Parish Family Fun Day, Sunday 18 September 2016

The Parish Family Fun Day was a most enjoyable event. A few drops of rain didn't dampen the spirits.
Lots of families with young children came to the 12 noon Mass. Our Sunday celebration continued afterwards with a range of outdoor entertainment. Throughout the afternoon, a continuous supply of tea, lemonade, sandwiches and biscuits was provided by volunteers.

Old favourites like bouncy castles, face-painting and games galore, were complemented by tours of the church given at intervals by a team of enthusiastic young volunteers.
Special thanks to all our volunteers, to all who came, to all who contributed towards covering our Fun Day expenses and especially to parishioner Noel Rabbitte of MSL Ballsbridge for generously supporting our event.
See 2016 photo album.
Also photos from previous years here: 2015 and 2014.
