Building the Church

The Church of Divine Mercy opened 17th September 2000 and you can see the slideshow of pictures from time of the construction by clicking on the image including an artist's impression of the new Church, provided by our Architect, Anthony Gallagher.

Main Church

The Main worship area for mass has a capacity of 380 people and is rectangular in shape. On either side of this are two side rooms; one is a family room for parents and young children and the other is the day chapel. The family room allows parents to bring young children who may have difficulty sitting quietly for the duration of the mass while allowing them to see and hear the ceremony.

Facilities

There is a parish room with an adjoining small kitchen which is often used to host tea and biscuits for parishioners after special masses and is located to the right as you enter from the main church doors. It is also sometimes used by community groups for various meetings during the week. There is also a bathroom available for use.

Marriage

Couples who wish to get married in our parish are advised to book the Church as soon as possible to secure a date. This should be done in person rather than by phone or e-mail.

If you live in the parish but are getting married in another parish it is still necessary to contact the parish priest and make an appointment to have your Pre-Nuptial Enquiry papers filled in. Before doing this, please arrange to get a recent copy of your baptism and confirmation certificates and a letter of freedom from your home parish to state that you are free to marry in the Catholic Church.

It is also necessary to register your marriage with the civil authorities by contacting the registry office. The registry office for the Dublin area is based in Joyce House, Lombard Street. Telephone: 01 6354000.

If you are getting married outside of Ireland you will need to contact the department of Foreign Affairs.
