An ecumenical celebration of Ireland's patron saint in word, & song took place
on 17th March 2016 in St Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin
The homily given by Fr Kieran O'Mahony at that event is available here.





The Objectives of the DCC - as stated in its Constitution - are

  • To encourage co-operation between churches and inter-church groups, at both local and district (city) level.
  • To explore within a Christian fellowship, based on mutual love and the presence of Christ among us,  the calling of the People of God to pray and work together for the fulfilment of Jesus' prayer 'that all may be one'.
  • To facilitate and exchange information and views of member churches on matters of concern.
  • To support joint study and action.
  • To disseminate information on ecumenical activities and resources.


The Dublin Council of Churches arranges a variety of events during the year, and also supports other ecumenical events, in the Dublin area. Any upcoming events will be listed on our Facebook Page. Click on the menu item above for information on these.
