Further Information

The spirituality and message of St Thérèse of Lisieux became known to millions through the publication of her autobiography Story of a Soul a year after her death. Here we hope you will find some insight to the intensity of her love for God, her prayerfulness and knowledge of Scripture and the simplicity of her life.

The late Patrick (Pat) Sweeney RIP


It is with sadness and a great sense of loss that we mark the death on 18 January 2022 of Pat Sweeney, Manager of the St Thérèse National Office Ireland based at Whitefriar Street Church Dublin.

Pat was an ardent devotee of St Thérèse of Lisieux. For several years until his death he worked tirelessly in promoting devotion to St Thérèse and in taking relics of St Thérèse and of her parents Saints Louis and Zélie Martin for prayer and veneration by individuals, parishes and communities throughout the length and breadth of the country.

He was recognised for his role with the late Fr J Linus Ryan O.Carm. in bringing major relics of St Thérèse from France to Ireland and engaging in an extensive itinerary with them in 2001, again in 2009 and more recently in 2018 on the occasion of the World Meeting of Families when he also brought major relics of Saints Louis and Zélie to Ireland.
