Dear Parishioner ,
Welcome to our parish website and if you are new to the area, welcome to our parish. You may come from further afield and simply want to know something about St. Jude the Apostle Parish – I hope that your visit will transform distance into friendship.
Our parishioners come from all over Ireland and beyond. We are comprised of young and not so young, working and retired people and children growing up who share a common love of God and each other. Please browse our site and feel welcome to drop into our beautiful church at any time to say a prayer or light a candle or join our parish family for Mass.
You can also tune in and watch our ceremonies live through the magic of the internet, which when you think of it is really what a parish is all about. A group of individuals combining talents and knowledge for the greater good and as the Jesuits would say, the Glory of God.
With best wishes:Fr. Brendan Madden P.P.

The Archbishop of Dublin Dermot Farrell has asked that we invite parishioners to contribute to a Summer Dues Collection in a bid to increase the amount being donated to the common fund and to allow the diocese to try and reinstate the priests salarys which were cut by 30% during covid. As full mass attendances have not returned to pre pandemic numbers, the collectons are still down up to 30 to 40%. If you can help we will leave Summer Dues envelopes on tables at back of church. They can be returned to parish office or safe at back of church up to end of July. Please ensure you put your name and address on envelopes so we can allocate payment to you and this will allow us to claim back any tax on your donations at end of year.
