Welcome to Whitefriar Street Church

Since the 1270s, the Carmelite friars have been a presence in one of the oldest parts of Dublin city. Whitefriar Street Church has changed and expanded over the centuries but always with the praise and worship of God at the centre of its life. Today it is an oasis of peace and prayer in the centre of our bustling city and is home to the Shrine of Our Lady of Dublin and to the Relics of St Valentine, which draw people from around the world every day. We invite you to discover much more about our beloved church.

Triduum in Honour of St Therese of Lisieux 

Whitefriar Street Church will celebrate a Triduum in Honour of St Therese of Lisieux this Thursday September 29th, Friday September 30th and Saturday October 1st 2022. The Triduum will take place at the 11 30am and 3pm Masses on each of these days. Fr Martin Baxter O. Carm will preach at each Mass.  

 Blessing with the Relic of St Therese and Blessing of Roses will take place at each Mass on Saturday ONLY
