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. See 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!

Monthly 9pm Mass with a Youth Focus, Sunday 1 November 2020, Feast of All Saints

Pope Francis has been encouraging all of us to listen to and encourage youth. In his Apostolic Exhortation following the 2018 Synod on Youth, he wrote:

"We cannot just say that young people are the future of our world. They are its present; even now, they are helping to enrich it”.
(Christus Vivit, 64)

In  response to the Holy Father's invitation, we continue to celebrate our monthly 9pm Mass with a Youth Focus. All youth are welcome to join us by livestream (see above re parish webcam).
 
 
For the moment, due to Covid restrictions, we regret that it will not be possible to open the doors to the public for physical attendance at Mass.

Relationships Enrichment: Sessions for engaged and recently married couples

On Monday 19 October  Eamon and Giselle profiled the marriage of Aquila and Priscilla, a fascinating couple from the first century AD, who did everything together, from changing home several times, to befriending St Paul and Apollos, to making tents, to having Mass in their home - if only we could do that now!
 
If you'd like to receive a link to the next meeting (Mon 9 November @8:15pm), contact Fr James by email at jpatrickhurley@gmail.com. You can also reach him by phone at 086-107 2930. (Should you have a couple you'd like to present on, do let us know!)
 
Our first Autumn meeting (via Zoom) on Monday 5 October went very well. Photos were displayed from Kerry and from Spain, and stories told from Wales and Dublin.
  
Scroll down to links to the podcasts on Family Time and Communication by the experienced Couples Counsellor, Nacho Tornel
 
A record audience "tuned in" for our virtual meeting on Monday 29 June which featured the screening of a wonderful talk on Marriage by Scott and Kimberly Hahn, entitled: Living Sacrament - Primary Channel of Grace. There was a very lively discussion afterwards.

On Monday 15 June we were joined from Scotland by Emmet Dooley and his wife Lucy who hails from there. Married for ten years, having changed homes multiple times and had four children along the way, they talked about challenges they faced and how God has helped them find solutions every time.
  
Short podcasts available here
 
Relationships Enrichment meets regularly on Mondays. We draw on the teaching of the Catholic Church, as well as on the help and advice of experienced married couples.

Annual Mass for the Deceased of the Parish, Sunday, 15 November 2020 at 12 noon

The month of November is traditionally the time of 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 noon Mass on Sunday, 15 November 2020 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 will also include those who have no one to remember them.

Unfortunately due to Level 5 restrictions, the Mass will be celebrated without a public presence and livestreamed via the webcam.

World Mission Sunday, 18 October 2020

On World Mission Sunday, all Mass collections, including those from the most impoverished churches in the developing world, will be offered to help further the reach of missionaries and mission. The collection is a lifeline, not only to missionaries, but also the future of the Church.

However, it is in jeopardy. The worldwide pandemic means that less of us can physically attend Mass, resulting in less offerings in the basket. Its implications for suffering overseas communities in the months ahead will be devastating.
 
COVID-19 brings fear, but it also shows us that selfless and courageous actions are not reserved solely for saints. In fact, they can be found in every one of us, and that by standing in solidarity together we can do more. Please, if you can, be extra generous this weekend. Your kindness will be used in the coming months to support overseas missionaries who dedicate their lives to some of the most impoverished and overcrowded communities in the world.
  • Donate €4.00 by texting the word ‘Mission’ to 50300.
  • Alternatively donate at https://www.wmi.ie/donate
  • or call Fiona in World Missions Ireland on 01 497 2035.
(Texts cost €4. World Missions Ireland will receive a minimum of €3.60.
