Our Story So Far ...
In 2007, Our Lady of Victories Parish on Ballymun Road, Glasnevin began an outreach to welcome more young adults to Mass. Inspired by the depth and appeal of Gospel music, the OLV Gospel Choir was formed as part of this parish initiative. The choir and band, small at first, began providing music for the weekly 6:00pm Sunday Young Adult Gospel Mass. Ten years later, their numbers have grown, but their purpose remains the same: to serve their parish community and the Lord by enriching this Mass with their faith, song and music. Striving to improve and develop their work, they have quickly become friends, supporting and helping each other as the OLV Gospel Choir family.
Ten years on, under the leadership of Ciaran Coll, its current director, the OLV Gospel Choir has now become one of Dublin’s most renowned Gospel Choirs. This 30 strong choir and dedicated band have enjoyed many highlights, including successes in choral competitions, international exchanges with other choirs, and performances televised on RTE, one of while was the opening ceremony of the 2012 International Eucharistic Congress in the RDS, Dublin. Other high points have included working with the renowned Gospel Choir director Mark De Lisser from ACM Gospel Choir, London and traveling to perform internationally in Vienna, London, Nice and Rome. All of these experiences have helped the choir enrich its Sunday liturgy in OLV Parish, and develop its music ministry.
In April 2018 the choir released their first studio album to mark ten years of making great Gospel music. This album was designed to bring the listener on a journey of joy, love, faith and inspiration. In August 2018 the Gospel Choir will be leading some of the music for the World Meeting of Families which is taking place in Dublin. The Choir will be animating music at the Pastoral Congress in the RDS as well as the meeting of Pope Francis in St.Mary’s Pro-Cathedral with couples who are preparing for or who have recently celebrated the Sacrament of Marriage. The Choir are honoured to be part of these very special gatherings and look forward to sharing their music, faith and friendship.
