Spirituality Programme at Christ Church Cathedral Dublin

Christ Church Cathedral seeks to be a sanctuary of prayer and praise to God in the heart of a busy and dynamic city.

We achieve this through welcoming worshipers for daily worship in the Anglican tradition, retreats, quiet mornings and creative prayer evenings.

One of the cathedral’s most beautiful treasures is our Trinity icon, commissioned by the Dean of Christ Church in 2009. It was written — in the style of the famous Russian Iconographer, Andrei Rublev — by prolific icon writer, Georgetta Simion, who studied art at the University of Bucharest.

The icon represents an invitation to all worshipers to join us at Christ Church. It is our hope that through the rhythm of prayer and spirituality expressed in life of the cathedral, all in this place will experience the sense of God’s welcome, inviting us in and welcoming us to the table.

Pilgrim Guides

Retreat in the City

Christ Church Cathedral holds regular retreats reflection, silence, and shared prayer.

Cathedral Nights

Christ Church Cathedral has previously run a series of special open evenings throughout the year intended to help people make space in their busy day for prayer and reflection.

Advent Sheep Trail

The Sheep Trail pilgrimage at Christ Church Cathedral was held during the season of Advent and was an invitation to all ages to make space for prayer and to prepare for the celebration of Christmas.

Live Outdoor Nativity

With a soundtrack of music sung by the Cathedral choir and the simple, powerful text of the Nativity story from the Gospel according to Luke, guests walked through the cathedral grounds and followed Mary and Joseph on their journey to Bethlehem. 

Creative Lent Programme

In previous years, each Lent Christ Church Cathedral has hosted a programme of creative reflection. There was a new theme every year but the programme generally centered on a small group of artists engaging in scriptural reflection or in different practices of prayer around the selected theme.
