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.

Four Approaches to Edith Stein
3rd March, 7pm UK Time
Join us in this 4 week course as we encounter the works of the formidable Edith Stein. In each week Professor Peter Tyler takes us through Edith’s life, her approaches to empathy and her views on the development of the human soul and the spiritual life.
Let Us Dream
26th January – 23rd February 2022
Over this short online course we will connect and engage online with the mind of Pope Francis revealed in this book. The three chapters : A Time to See, A Time to Choose and a Time to Act are invitations to discern the sign of the times. With a sense of togetherness let’s explore what vision emerges from the book and explore the challenges felt in this Pope’s exposé of a better future as he perceives it.
Enriching Ministry Day 26 March 2022
26th March, 7pm UK Time.
The desert is a place of both purification and promise. As we journey through Lent, how can we find nourishment in the wilderness and recognise where the Lord has both carried us and gone in front of us, always present in both light and cloud?
“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.”
