  • The place is always crowded since there are three Catholic churches in Dubai and this is the only one nearest in a Metro Station.. Masses are timed usually every Friday as sermons are being done in different languages but every day, there's mass in English language. There's prayer area on the left side of the entrance with Mama Mary's grotto.. Over all, this is a very nice place to visit, to worship, to pray, to have peace of mind. And we have to thank His Highness very much for allowing Catholic churches to be built in UAE as gratitude to the people who helped developed his beloved country.
  • It is one of the biggest churches in the UAE. It has holy mass in more than 20 languages and consist of more than 20 priests. It is a perfect example for religious tolerance which is particularly significant now a days. The wall of the church is shared by the Oudh metha mosque. The prayers done in the mosque is heard in the church and the mass conducted in church is heard in the mosque . The church manages one of the best schools in Dubai. St. Mary's school is considered as one of the best schools in Dubai. The place is serene and quiet.
  • 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.
  • Being the largest parish in the world should be another record held by Dubai. Read about this recently. Went to Dubai to attend a wedding. Reached the Church late due to a miscommunication. Paid parking in the area. It was afternoon so the Caesars bakeries were closed.
  • 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.

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.
