St. Mary Magdalene’s Parish, Monaleen

Welcome to our parish website – we hope you find it informative and return regularly. Your feedback is very welcome and please let me know if there are any errors or omissions.

For those who are not familiar with our parish, Monaleen is located to the east of Limerick city, just off the Dublin Road, in Castletroy. It was originally part of St. Patrick’s Parish on Clare Street, but was set up as an independent parish in 1971. The parish is 50 years old this year.

During these 50 years there have been immense developments in our parish. We have seen a vast increase in the size of our community, a massive growth in our school population and many outstanding achievements of our sporting clubs at both juvenile and senior level.

This website was set up to keep the people of Monaleen – at home and abroad – informed and engaged with happenings at both a church and community level. Please let me know if you have anything you would like to contribute. Hopefully our regular church and community activities will be able to resume in the autumn.

Diocese of Limerick – Vocations

Have you considered a Vocation?
A vocation is an invitation from God to give oneself in a particular way for the upbuilding of the Church and the sanctification of the world. While each person has a specific calling to live out the call to holiness, at the heart of a vocation is love. Love is the motivation to serve as a priest, a consecrated, or a married person.

The latest vocations newsletter is now available on the diocesan website and can be accessed by clicking on this link
