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!

Parish Pilgrimage to the Holy Land, 13-21 September 2017

The inaugural pilgrimage of Lady Queen of Peace to the Holy Land will take place from Wednesday 13th  to  Thursday 21 September 2017 (direct flights between Dublin and Tel Aviv).
 
For many people a trip to the Holy Land is a once in a lifetime opportunity. We will spend 3 nights in Tiberias and 5 nights in Jerusalem and visit the major holy sites in Galilee and in Jerusalem and surroundings. 
 
In order to make fuller use of the potential of our pilgrimage, we will also go to the soon-to-be-opened Saxum Visitor Centre. This Saxum visit will facilitate obtaining the spiritual means and essential instruction and resources to enter more deeply into the Gospels and prepare our parishioners for a deeply personal and transformative encounter with Jesus Christ. Through our visit to the Holy Land we hope to seek, find and to love Christ at a deeper level.
 
If you would like to book, please contact MAP Travel and also leave your name with the Parish Office. More details for download below.
 
For more background on the Holy Sites, see eBook In the Footprints of our Faith, which can be downloaded in various formats here.

What does Jesus do when he walks with us? Louder! First: he helps us. He leads us! Very good. He walks with us, he helps us, he leads us and he teaches us to journey on. [...]
