    St. Mary's Catholic Church is located near the Dubai Creek. From the Dolphinarium from it is on foot in less than five minutes. The Church was built in 1989 and since then has been the meeting place for the faithful Christians of the city. A Catholic Church in a Muslim country is certainly notable and a good sign for the Christians in Dubai as a tourist attraction is but very limited suitable to them.

    It's not exactly a church, but a set of facilities and buildings entered in a very large space, with giant televisions. In the interior of the building in which I was present in a Catholic ceremony very beautiful, made by a Brazilian missionary, father exists so the interior of a very large conventional Church: an altar, Sanctuary, representations of Saints and other props, to sing the mass organs and many, many faithful. The priest told me that last Christmas had more than 125000 assistants scattered not only by the buildings, but also by adjacent land following the mass by giant screens, but it's normal to have 30000 believers to end week, being that the masses are celebrated by different priests and missionaries in at least 12 different languages. This Catholic Park let's call it that, is in an area away from the Centre of Dubai, much about Deira, is modest and funcional.mas draws attention by your uniqueness

    St. Mary's Catholic Church Dubai is a huge blessing to my life. when my husband Alexio passed away last year i was completed devastated, I was free from my depression as i kept visiting St. Mary's Church for the Holy Eucharisitic Celebration. Its a beautiful place to be in the evening sitting in the church compound in front of the grotto of the blessed Mother of Jesus and reciting a Rosary. The Church has a canteen with tasty snacks, tea and coffee. The Church has a chapel to visit the blessed sacrament. There are washrooms available. St. Mary's Church Priests are always helpful and full of love for their congregation. A must visit place in Dubai. If you are struggling and need peace this is heaven on earth to me.

    One of the best churches I love to visit. More than 15 priests. Masses almost 15 languages. Masses in the morning and evening. Have a separate adoration chapel.

    Probably the biggest church in the UAE as regards parishioners. In St. Mary's you'll never be alone. Check out the mass timings on thr website. One ladt thing, if you are driving, try and get to the church at least 30mins to your mass or parking will be a hassle.

Where to stay in Dubai

Dubai is a city of hotels, with most of the world's leading chains represented. Rooms remain expensive and luxurious, as most establishments cater to visitors with deeper pockets. You can still save money on accommodations if you look hard enough. Move away from the coast for more affordable backpacker hostels and self-service apartments, as well as less expensive hotel rooms where a lack of luxurious amenities and less appealing views keep rates suited to budget travelers.
