Preparation for First Confession and First Communion

The final session for children making their First Confession (Penance) and First Communion in 2017 was held on 5 May.

It is hoped that, arising from this programme, a monthly Adoration session for these children and their siblings and friends will begin in the Autumn.
In addition, another Preparation Programme will be scheduled for the Spring of 2018. See outline details here.



St Michael's College, First Holy Communion, Saturday 6 May 2017 at 12 noon

We congratulate students of St Michael's College who made their First Holy Communion in Our Lady Queen of Peace on Saturday 6 May 2017. More photos here.

We invite them to reflect on these words of Pope Francis to a group of first communicants on 26 May 2013

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. [...]



Adoration on Easter Monday, 10.30am - 9pm

We are very happy in Our Lady Queen of Peace to be part of the Jesus Youth Awakening initiative.
It comprises of 100 days of Eucharist Adoration in various European countries for the following intentions:
  • Revival of the Faith in Europe
  • Vocations to the priesthood, religious, consecrated and family life
  • Persecuted people all over the world

It is a wonderful opportunity to pray for these intentions and to continue our own thanksgiving for the graces of Easter.

Novena of Grace: 4-12 March 2017

The Novena of Grace will begin on Saturday 4 March and end on Sunday 12 March, anniversary of the canonisation of St Francis Xavier in 1622.

Each day of the novena, the prayer seeking the intercession of St Francis Xavier will be recited at the end of Mass.

At the 12 noon Mass each day Fr Donncha Ó hAodha / Fr Walter Macken of the Opus Dei Prelature will give a special homily taking in an aspect of the life of St Francis Xavier, with practical lessons being drawn for ordinary life. This will be especially appropriate for the first days of Lent.



YES to LIFE briefing meeting, Our Lady Queen of Peace, Tue 21 February 2017 at 8pm

This briefing session provided information on how to get involved in a parish-based pro-life initiative. Very helpful support was given on articulating pro-life views with compassion and factual clarity, together with well-presented documentation with background information.
YES to LIFE aims to facilitate as many one-to-one personal conversations as posssible about the right to life and the 8th Amendment. So, this is a chance to become involved in a nationwide effort to protect life.
People have genuine questions about how we, as a society, can provide compassionate and truly progressive answers to women and their unborn babies, especially those facing unexpected pregnancies.


Mass for Couples and Families, 12 noon on Sunday, 12 February 2017

There was a large attendance at the special Mass for couples (both married and preparing for marriage) on Sunday, 12 February at 12 noon, in anticipation of the feast of St Valentine. Among the congregation were lots of young children, which was a joy to behold.
The liturgy celebrated the love of spouses and included intercessionary prayers for families.
This celebration is part of our preparation for next year's World Meeting of Families (22-26 August 2018) and prompted by the words of Pope Francis in Amoris Laetitia, n. 208.

Pope Francis' Prayer to the Holy Family

At their October 2016 meeting, the bishops of Ireland encouraged the faithful to pray the Prayer to the Holy Family written by Pope Francis and published in his apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia (The Joy of Love) - (more info here).


Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
in you we contemplate
the splendor of true love;
to you we turn with trust.

Holy Family of Nazareth,
grant that our families too
may be places of communion and prayer,
authentic schools of the Gospel
and small domestic churches.

Holy Family of Nazareth,
may families never again experience
violence, rejection and division;
may all who have been hurt or scandalized
find ready comfort and healing.

Holy Family of Nazareth,
make us once more mindful
of the sacredness and inviolability of the family,
and its beauty in God’s plan.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
graciously hear our prayer.




Fourth Formers from St Michael's Junior School visit parish during Catholic Schools Week

As part of Catholic Schools Week, we were very happy to welcome the students of Fourth Form from St Michael's College to Our Lady Queen of Peace on Tuesday, 31 January 2017, feast of St John Bosco. 
They came for 12 noon Mass, led by their teacher, Enda Ruane, with Miriam Gaughan in support. Several of their grandparents also attended the Mass.
The boys stayed on for a tour of the church given by parishioners Catherine and Brian O'Flynn.
Afterwards they saw how a priest vests before Mass and viewed some short episodes from the life of St Josemaría Escrivá. The highly successful visit concluded with a treat!
