Welcome to The Oratory

Failte and Welcome to the Blanchardstown Centre Oratory at the yellow entrance in Dublin 15.

Welcome to a place of peace, serenity, and the tranquility of a Sacred Space.   The Oratory is a “One Stop Shop”   where the Capuchin Franciscan Friars and volunteers provide a 7 day service to all.   All are welcome to a place of silence, pardon, peace, prayer and friendship.  

 We see the Oratory as the integration of Faith and Commerce.  “ God has a place in the Market  Place”.    We provide a space that is very relevant to a modern workforce.   People want more than simply to be used to manage profits for shareholders and long for a nobler inner peace and tranquility.  

Our slogan is “Come for the prices and stay for the Prayer “  - Shop, Play, Stay and Pray.
