Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

St Michael’s Parish wishes you all a very Happy Christmas and Every Blessing in the New Year.
Beannacht na Nollag oraibh ar fad agus Ath-Bhliain faoi Mhaise!


The community of St Michael’s offer our deepest sympathy to the family,  friends, and Lithuanian community in Ireland on the sudden death of Pranciskus Rameika. Mass will be offered for Pranciskus at St Michael’s this evening (May 31st), whose remains will be removed to Lithuania for a funeral later in the week. 

As well as his family here, we remember in our prayers, his sister, who has made the sad journey to Ireland to bring him home.

We also extend our deepest condolences to his mother, children and relatives in Lithuania on their tragic loss.

Tegul ilsisi ramybėje. May he Rest in Peace. Solas na bhFlaitheas dá anam dílis.

May Newsletter

Please find in the link below the May Newsletter for our Parish. It contains important information about the community as well as next Masses and celebrations.



Lauren Tuite, from the Inchicore Environmental Group gave an excellent talk at St Michael’s – Sunday March 7th 2021 (see Link below).

The group is looking for gardens and green spaces in which to plant fruit trees in the Dublin 8 area. 

Please contact Pádraigín Clancy Parish Pastoral Worker if you would like a tree planted in your garden. 


On 13 May 1992, a number of years following an assassination attempt on his life, that led to a time of suffering and the experience of being seriously ill in hospital, Saint Pope John Paul II launched a World Day of the Sick – which coincides each year in the Church across the world with the Feast Day of Our Lady of Lourdes on 11 February.

Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis have continued this special World Day – an occasion during which the whole Church bears witness as always with special concern to the tender mercy and love of God towards all who suffer. It is a time to reflect on the needs of all who suffer, to pause and be prayerfully in solidarity with those who experience illness and with all who care for those who are facing sickness. 

Pope Francis always encourages us to experience the merciful face of Jesus, showing his mercy and tenderness to those who live through sickness and suffering, respecting their own inalienable dignity and mission in life, as we serve life and health.

“The celebration of the XXIX World Day of the Sick on 11 February
2021, the liturgical memorial of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Lourdes,
is an opportunity to devote special attention to the sick and to
those who provide them with assistance and care both in
healthcare institutions and within families and communities.  We
think in particular of those who have suffered, and continue to
suffer, the effects of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic.  To all,
and especially to the poor and the marginalized, I express my spiritual closeness and assure them of the Church’s loving concern”

Pope Francis, 29th  World Day of the Sick 2021

Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us. Mary, Mother of God, full of mercy, pray for us. Blessed Joseph her Spouse, pray for us.

Live Mass Recordings

As many of you know, we now have a Live Feed service in the Parish, enabling us to broadcast (and record) the Daily as well as the Sunday Masses.

The recordings will be available shortly after the mass, when the video is uploaded.

So first of all: we would like to thank our viewers – as we had more than 150 different households connected with us during last Sunday Mass!

To view the recording is very simple: go to the Live Feed menu, then select the Recordings tab (check the image below).

A direct link to last Sunday Mass’ (October 18th 2020) Recording (for Viewing and Downloading) can be accessed here
