Welcome to St Maur’s Parish, Rush.  And céad míle fáilte to our Parish website! We want to make our Parish website an interesting and worthwhile location for both Parishioners and visitors to keep up to date with what’s happening in our Parish.

The community spirit in Rush allows us to draw on the enormous reservoir of talents present in Rush Parish. Our community is filled with gifted and talented people who share their gifts generously and willingly, in a variety of ways.

We are fortunate to have many individuals who volunteer, through various ministries and activities, helping to build and serve our community and Parish. Perhaps you may like to share your own gifts by becoming part of one of these activities or ministry teams. We would be delighted to hear from you.

Day Chapel

The Main Church is closed after Daily Mass. The Day Chapel is open all day for short visits and Daily Prayer.

We are also fortunate to have the Beautiful Grotto in the Church grounds which many people continue to visit for a short outdoor prayer.  A special candle has been placed in the Grotto asking Our Lady’s Protection for our parish and all our loved ones.

Parish Office is open Monday to Friday 9.30  – 12.00 p.m.

Emails can be sent to rushparishoffice@gmail.com

Further correspondence can be left in the Green Parish Post Box which is mounted on the wall at the Day Chapel.

Eucharistic Adoration

Eucharistic adoration is spending time with Jesus who is truly present in the Blessed Sacrament. During adoration we watch and wait, we remain silent in His presence and open ourselves to His graces which flow from the Eucharist. By being present during Adoration we become what God wants us to be. Like a magnet, Jesus draws us to Himself and gently transforms us.


Baptism application forms can be downloaded from our website and safely posted in the “Green Parish postbox” ,located in the main porch of the Church which is open daily.

Baptisms take place at 12.45 p.m on the first and third Sunday of each month .

 Let us all work together to keep each other safe, to build up our Parish and to give fitting praise to God.
Fr Kevin Bartley and the Parish Team.



For any wedding enquiries please contact Rush Parish office.




We offer our sympathies to families who have been bereaved. Your Funeral Undertaker will contact the Parish to make the funeral arrangements.

Let us all work together to keep each other safe, to build up our Parish and to give fitting praise to God.
Fr Kevin Bartley and the Parish Team.

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

Extract from Saint Patrick’s Breastplate

Christ with me,
Christ before me,
Christ behind me,
Christ in me,
Christ beneath me,
Christ above me,
Christ on my right,
Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down,
Christ when I sit down,
Christ when I arise,
Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.


Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection,
implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence,
I fly to you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To you I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer.  Amen.
