Welcome to the website of the Irish Dominican Parish. Our Parish forms part of the Patriarchate of Lisbon and celebrates English-language Masses in São Pedro do Estoril and Cascais.
The Irish Dominican Fathers have worked in Portugal for nearly 350 years and our parish today is proud to carry on their tradition of serving the English-speaking community in a country where worshipping in the local language can sometimes be an overwhelming challenge for newcomers.
Our Mass Centres in Cascais, Estoril serve the needs of a widely diverse multi-cultural community. Details of the two centres can be found on our MASS TIMES AND LOCATIONS page. If you have comments or questions about our site or simply need more information and want to speak to someone, please click on the CONTACT US button or send us an email via the link at the top right-hand corner of this page.
If you are a newcomer we hope you will feel welcome. Please make yourself known to our Parish Priest, Father David Walker O.P., or to one of the parishioners.
If you are a long time parishioner, we hope you will find something new to interest you on this site.
We are not a closed-in parish. We always welcome new members - and new helpers!
