Parish Office

We are having difficulty with the phone system in the Parish office.  The current message states that the Office is closed until 26th!  We apologise for any inconvenience while we endeavour to amend this issue.


Parish Sacramental Preparation

A huge thanks to all the children and parents who attended the Sacramental preparation Masses during the week.


They continue this coming week on Wednesday, 22nd   September at 7:15pm in St. Patrick’s Church, Stamullen and Thursday, 23rd September at 7:15 pm in St. Mary’s Church, Julianstown.


If you are unable to attend your particular mass, you are very welcome to attend the alternative night.


Families are also encouraged to attend weekend Masses over the next few weeks, as Government guidelines now allow bigger attendance in Churches.


For the safety of all:


  • All adults must wear facemasks while in the Church for all Masses/Liturgies.


  • Sanitisers are available at the entrance to both churches.


The celebration of Mass is our opportunity to nourish ourselves with the love of God and also in the love of our fellow parishioners and our parish community.  It is a life-giving experience.


  • The preparations for 2022 First Holy Communion and Confirmation children and their families will begin shortly.



Your prayers are requested for the repose of the souls of Albert Roche and Margaret Mulholland whose funerals took place in the parish this week.

We remember the bereaved in our prayers.

Confirmation & First Communion 2022

Confirmation and First Communion Preparation for 2022 will begin shortly.  Parents who are interested in joining a steering committee to help organise the preparation Masses for these sacraments are asked to contact the Parish Office.



Adoration has resumed in St. Patrick’s Church Stamullen on Thursdays for one hour after Mass.
