Welcome to Saint Patrick's Parish

We welcome you to St. Patrick's Parish, Monkstown. We hope you find warmth and hospitality here. As you browse through this website, you will become more familiar with our parish and what it can offer you. As you become more acquainted with us, you may find an area in which to share time and talent with us. The success of our parish depends on the work and cooperation of all of us. As a parish community, we cannot afford to stand still. With vocations to the priesthood in decline, the future shape of the parish is going to depend increasingly on the rightful participation of lay people in its life and ministry. Many parishioners are already involved in various groups and ministries and registering as a new parishioner will provide you with an opportunity to express any interest you may have in becoming involved. Co-responsibility must be a key principle as we plan for the future.

TWICE BUILT - A new book about our church's history

St Patrick's, Monkstown, is 150 years old this year.

A foundation stone was laid on 29th June 1861, but the church did not open for services until September 1866, and it was not fully completed at that time. What happened in between?

There is a clue in the title of a new book "Twice Built" by Tom Conlon. It tells the extraordinary story of the construction of St. Patrick's, and the people who built it.
