To the Holy Spirit, Creator and Lord of the Church who guides her through time and gently urges her ever onward, we address this supplication: R. Come, You who ever makes all things new!

Amis, Cairde, Friends …. Welcome.
Welcome to our Chaplaincy website. We hope you enjoy your visit.
Our current Chaplain is Fr. Jim Doyle, a priest of Ferns Diocese, Ireland, and has served in various parishes in Co. Wexford since his ordination in 2006. A native of Murrintown, Co. Wexford, having attended secondary school in St. Peter’s College, Fr. Jim went on to study civil engineering in UCG. He then worked as a site engineer with SISK in Limerick before joining CONCERN and working on school, roads and water projects in Cambodia and Burundi. Feeling the call to be a priest he was sent by his diocese to study in Ars sur Formans, near Lyon. He completed his studies in St. Patrick’s College, Maynooth, and is now delighted to be appointed to the Irish Chaplaincy in Paris. He hopes to be of some help to you in your journey of faith.
Fr. Jim is always happy to meet any of the Irish Community in Paris and to offer any pastoral assistance whenever necessary. The work of Chaplain includes everything from signing Passport applications through baptismal and marriage preparation, hospital and prison visitation and of course celebrating the weekly Sunday Mass in the beautiful Chapelle Saint-Patrick as well as lending a hand occasionally with the pastoral needs of our local parish St. Etienne du Mont.
The Catholic Church in Ireland has had a presence in the Latin Quarter for over 400 years. Since 1770, the centre of that presence has been the Collège des Irlandais and its Chapelle Saint-Patrick on the Rue des Irlandais.
The recently renovated Collège now houses the Centre Culturel Irlandais and the Chapelle Saint-Patrick continues to be a centre of worship and pastoral outreach to the Irish in Paris.
