Serving Our Parishioners For 50 Years
Our Lady of Victories has been a focal point for the community, both spiritually and temporally, since 1969. In 2019, we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the incorporation of Our Lady of Victories parish here on Ballymun Road and we hope to mark this special anniversary with an event in June.

Fr. Fintan Gavin appointed as Bishop of Cork and Ross
Called To Serve
As a priest it is never a good idea to get too comfortable in any one place. We do not know when we will get the next call or indeed where our next appointment will be. This certainly proved to be case when Fr. Fintan received a call from the Papal Nuncio asking him if he would accept the appointment as Bishop of Cork and Ross. It certainly came as a shock to us all when we heard the news. As a priest it is always important to be open to the promptings of the Holy Spirit.
For Fr. Fintan it will be certainly a very different challenge but one that he is more than able for. From our own experience journeying with him here in Our Lady of Victories we know that he will bring great energy, commitment and dedication to his new appointment. It was lovely to hear some of the comments from our parishioners, remarking that it was indeed a wonderful choice. The Holy Spirit is certainly alive and active in our church and I know that the diocese of Cork and Ross will be in very good hands under the care and stewardship of Fr. Fintan. Certainly he has proven to be and will continue to be a wonderful shepherd. Never before has the saying; ‘Dublin’s loss is Cork and Ross’ gain’ had such an impact on us all here. On behalf of all the parishioners in Our Lady of Victories I thank Fr. Fintan for his wonderful service and care to us. Over the years with us he went way beyond his call of duty. We will miss him greatly here. We wish him every grace and blessing as prepares for a new chapter in his priestly ministry. We ask that you all keep him in your prayers at this time. May God bless him and keep him, may he make His face to shine upon him and may He be gracious to him now and always. Amen
