Ministry at the Capuchin Friary

Raheny Friary has been used for many years as a house of formation and is currently our Provincial Postulancy. The Capuchin friars based there are involved in a variety of ministries, including:

  • Chaplaincy to St. Francis Hospice Raheny and St Francis Hospice Blanchardstown
  • Dublin Port Chaplaincy,
  • Archdiocesan Office for Evangelisation & Ecumenism
  • Blanchardstown Centre Oratory
  • Formation
  • Spiritual Direction

The friary also provides a base for many visiting students who come to pursue studies in Dublin. The Oratory is open each day from 6.30am until 8.50pm with Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament all day.
