Welcome to St Martin Apostolate

You can submit your special prayers for any special intentions on the Prayer section of our site. You might also like to pray for others by visiting their prayer request and praying for them HERE.

 

Located on Parnell Square West, Saint Martin Apostolate has been working, through our many activities, to bring the word and peace of God to the people of Ireland and the wider world. Through St. Martin’s teachings and example we learn to attain peace through prayer and reflection and to help those less fortunate than ourselves due to poverty or infirmity.

 

Our association comprises staff, volunteers and clerics who between them run a chapel, shop, offices for the publication of our ‘Saint Martin Magazine’, quarterly fundraising draws , management of the many prayer and mass intentions received each month, this website and related online store . We also manage Dublin’s famous Moving Crib  that has been running each Christmas season since 1963. We have also introduced a Teacher’s Resource to assist Teachers in entertaining and informing their students.

 

We hope this website serves you well and please feel free to contact us with any questions. We are especially happy to hear from anyone who wishes to volunteer their time to help us achieve our apostolic goals.
