The Rev Noel Waring first established the Church’s Ministry of Healing in the Church of Ireland in 1932. In this, he received strong support and encouragement from the then Archbishop of Dublin, Archbishop Gregg. Over the years, CMH has been instrumental in developing and encouraging this important dimension of the Church’s wider ministry throughout Ireland. As well as its Dublin base, it developed a centre at The Mount in Belfast and other diocesan centres were established. Today, CMH: The Mount is an independent company but CMH: Ireland continues to work collaboratively with it and with all the dioceses and parishes in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
Our office is based in Egan House, St Michan’s Church. The building is a former widows’ almshouse, and is described in the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage, at this link.
As the Inventory states:
The house is an important reminder of the large number of charitable buildings established in this part of Dublin in the eighteenth century.
It is thus an extremely fitting place for CMH:I to have its office!
