Serving Our Parishioners For Over 50 Years
Our Lady of Victories has been a focal point for the community, both spiritually and temporally, since 1969. In 2019, we celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the incorporation of Our Lady of Victories parish here on Ballymun Road.

Recently Deceased: We pray for Philip MacGabhann, Niall Reynolds-Hand and Mary Doolan who passed recently.
Months Mind: We pray for Mary Murphy whose month’s mind occurs around this time.
We pray for all who are bereaved at this time that they may find comfort in God’s eternal love and our support.

An Act of Spiritual Communion
I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love you above all things,
and I desire to receive you into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace you now as if you were already there
and I unite myself wholly to you.
Never permit me to be separated from you.
