The ANNUAL MASS FOR THE BEREAVED takes place on Saturday, 22nd December 2018 at 6pm in Halston Street

Every effort will be made to contact the relatives of those who died since November 2017, but since the arrival of GDPR, the parish only holds details relating directly to the deceased and the funeral, and on occasion, a contact number for one of the family. We are asking your assistance in getting the date for the Mass out to as many as possible.

Mass Bookings for Halston Street

At the Parish Pastoral Council meeting on 10 October, it was agreed that, as and from the first Sunday in Advent (27th November), the Saturday 6pm Mass and the Sunday noon Mass would both be shared Masses. It is hoped that this change will help facilitate the many families who wish to come to Halston Street to pray for special intentions or to remember the anniversaries their loved ones.

The first Saturday of the month will continue to be reserved for the Monthly Mass for Recently Deceased

Novena Mass cards are available from the Parish Office and at the weekend Masses. The Novena Masses are celebrated in Halston Street each month.

General Information

The priests of the parish and the Parish Pastoral Council wish you and your family peace.

The parish of St. Michan was constituted in 1096 making it one of the oldest parishes in the diocese. We are fortunate to be living in such an historic part of Dublin, the significance of which is often lost as we observe people coming and going on a daily basis as they commute to work from the suburbs.

There are two Catholic churches in our parish – the parish church of St. Michan (Halston Street) and the friary church of St. Mary of the Angels (Church Street). The parish is presently under the care of the Capuchin Franciscan Order.
