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.
 
The Pilgrimage is being organised by MAP Travel. More details will be announced according as they become available.

YOUCAT Study Group, Tuesdays 8-9pm. Next Session is on 28 March 2017

The YOUCAT is 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).

 
This Tuesday (28 March 2017)  we will look at how to pray: how did Jesus pray, how did Mary pray; adoration, contemplation, the Rosary; are our prayers heard? (YOUCAT qq. 469 - 498).

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)
YOU are invited to CATCH up by joining our YOUCAT study group every Tuesday, 8-9pm. Remember: it's never too late to start discovering your destiny!
