Welcome to Our Parish Website

Welcome to our parish website – the Parish of Mary Immaculate, Inchciore, Dublin 8.

We want this website to be informative and interesting for both parishioners and visitors to our parish.

The parish is administerd by the Missionary Oblate of Mary Immaculate (OMI) more commonly know as the Oblates.
Our neighbouring parishes of Our Lady of the Wayside, Bluebell and St Michael’s are also Oblate parishes.

The then Vicar General of the Oblates restated the role of the Oblates as

“commitment to the poor and our lived experience of the presence of God in our own lives and in every area of human life”. (2008)

We in the parish of Mary Immaculate welcome you to our parish and invite you to share in our faith community and to join us in celebration of Mass and the sacraments.

Syro-Malabar Community in Ireland

The parish of Mary Immaculate and the Oblate community were delighted that the church was designated as a host church for the Syro-Malabar community for the IEC2012, which was held from June 10th-17th.

The Syro-Malabar Church is the second largest Church among the Eastern Catholic Churches.

St. Thomas the Apostle founded the Syro-Malabar Church, otherwise called the Church of St. Thomas Christians, in South India. The present Kerala State is the home of this Church.

There are a large population of members of this church in Ireland and the parish of Mary Immaculate is one of a number of church centres for the community in Dublin.
