Welcome to our new website for St. Teresa’s Church, Clarendon Street, Dublin. We have exciting plans for this site and we encourage you to check back regularly. Here is a brief introduction from Fr. Jim Noonan, OCD. who is a Discalced Carmelite and Prior at St Teresa’s Church.

We have so much happening this year, that we wanted to give you a glimpse of some of what we have planned.  

“The breathing of the air” – The Holy Spirit in the teachings of St. John of the Cross Weekend Retreat 

13th – 15th May 2022

We invite you to join us on our residential weekend retreat with Fr Matt Blake, OCD.

Saint John of the Cross (1542-1591) is one of the most profound spiritual masters in the history of the Church and his insights into the nature and action of divine love, the work of the Holy Spirit, are profound yet, beautiful and simple. In this retreat, we will reflect on the wisdom of John’s teachings about the Holy Spirit who leads us into an experience of the transforming love of God that leaves us more perfect in love


“The breathing of the air” – The Holy Spirit in the teachings of St. John of the Cross Weekend Retreat 

27th – 29th May

This retreat is part of a series of weekend retreats. Each weekend stands alone, with its own theme, but all are connected by the contemplative dimension and offer a different perspective to help us live in continual awareness of God’s presence.

‘Listening to the Voice of the Heart’: A Contemplative Weekend Retreat

3rd – 5th June

At the first Pentecost the first believers in Jesus experienced the powerful inflow of the spirit of Risen Lord which filled the Church and poured forth into the world (Acts 2). This is the promise of every Pentecost. This retreat will prepare us to enter more deeply into the mystery of Pentecost, encouraging us to allow ourselves to experience the loving inflow of divine love that empowers and recreates.

“Christ has no body now on earth but yours,
no hands but yours, no feet but yours,
Yours are the eyes through which is to look out Christ’s compassion to the world;
Yours are the feet with which he is to go about doing good;
Yours are the hands with which he is to bless men now.”
