Parish Mission Statement

 Inspired by the Gospel, we the parishioners of Halston Street Parish recognise the dignity and uniqueness of each person.

Like Jesus, who washed the feet of others, we are committed to serving one another and to making our parish a community where everyone feels welcomed, accepted, valued, listened to and cared for.

Parish Office
In order to accommodate callers to the Parish Office in the late afternoon, particularly those who would like access to the parish after normal working hours, we have decided to make the availability/opening hours more flexible. To assist in this, we ask callers to contact the office in advance and an appointment will be made. Every effort will be made to have someone available between 3:30pm and 5:30pm, Monday to Friday. Exceptions will be necessary to allow time for meetings and Diocesan duties, so please phone before making the journey to Halston Street.

Due to essential repairs to the roof above the Parish Office and Sacristy, the office will be closed for the week starting 14 October. During this time, the parish emails and phone messages will be monitored.

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.
