Comhaltas Chríost Rí (CCR)

Comhaltas Chríost Rí (Association of Christ the King) is dedicated to Christ the King. Its motto - Adveniat Regnum Tuum - expresses the desire to further the reign of Christ the King. This is achieved primarily by living a life of deep faith acquired especially through prayer and study. Good friendships and a strong community help to reinforce these ideas, which is the main purpose behind the different group events. The spirituality of the group is nourished by the Mass of All Time, which faithfully expresses the traditional doctrine of the Church.

About us

Since the early 90s a group of single Catholics in Ireland have been meeting bi-monthly to spend a weekend together with friends who are united in the same Faith. Because of the separation of distance between each other, these weekends serve as crucial reminders that there are others close by fighting the same battle in a godless world. The activities of the weekend revolve around daily Mass, the centre of the Christian life. Conferences and instructions are given by our chaplain and various members serve to educate the group on various interesting topics, concerning the faith, morals, spirituality, social doctrine and the liturgy. Last but not least, we dedicate time to various fun-filled activities that everyone can enjoy together!

Our Mission

CCR is an apostolate of the Society of Saint Pius X in Ireland and is open to Catholic, single, youth aged 18-30 years old.  

This age limit allows for exceptions, made at the discretion of the Chaplain. 17 year olds are welcome to attend day events only, including the annual 17 year old open-day. 

Prayer: The members of the group pledge themselves to “re-establish the kingdom of God, first of all in [themselves]” (Pius X, 1942) as it is only by cultivating a fervent interior life that we will have a fruitful apostolate because without the grace of God we are nothing.

Study: We recognise that it is the duty of every Catholic to study their faith as, in order to serve God we must know Him and "ignorance is our first enemy" (St. Pius X)

Friendship: this environment will encourage members to grow in friendship with other youth and encourage new individuals to join who are united in the same faith. St. Augustine’s “Confessions” explain “blessed is he who loves his friends in Thee”, thus showing that all members should aspire to a true friendship out of Christian charity. The love of friends prompts them to have confidence, be frank and pray for each other.  As social people, they need the support of those around them; they must look for advice and support for mind and soul with those who share their intimate struggles in life.

Patron: St. Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows, the patron saint of youth.
