Churches in Dubai


Here is the list of 1 Churches in Dubai

1. St. Mary’s Catholic Church

The Catholic community of Dubai was initially served from Bahrain, but needs soon arose for a permanent resident-priest. Fr. Therefore Barnabas turned to the benevolent Sheik Rashid and asked for an area for a place of worship. This request was granted immediately, but the plot given was quite far away. Father Eusebio Daveri, on his arrival to Dubai in 1965, acquired a more convenient area and started preparations for a church. A parish hall was ready in early 1966. Sheik Rashid himself laid the foundation stone for the church on 25 May 1966 and was solemnly blessed by Mgr Magliacani on 7 April 1967. It was then dedicated to the Mother Mary, hence the name.

Address: 247 Oud Metha Rd
