The parish has played an important part in Dundonian life since it was established in the 1930s.

As well as being a place of worship for the local Catholic community, its hall has hosted many social and fund-raising events.

Under the leadership of Father Eugene O'Sullivan, it quickly became the heart of the city's Irish student community in the 1990s.

Today it is home to Father Krzysztof Frost, who provides spiritual guidance to the city's Polish population.

He will move to St Joseph's parish on Blackness Road...

The last masses in the parish will take place on Sunday, August 15, which is the feast of the Assumption, the reception of the Virgin Mary into heaven.
