The St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church was inaugurated in November 2001 by Bishop Bernard Gremoli as part of the Apostolic Vicariate of Southern Arabia (formerly Vicariate of Arabia). Our parish is presently pastored by Bishop Paul Hinder. We comprise of many nationalities and diverse communities from around the world united in one body of Christ. Located just off of Sheikh Zayed road behind Al Muntazah Complex in the emirate of Dubai, we are easily accessible from The Gardens Boulevard, Ibn Battuta Metro Station by bus or taxi, and from the Jebel Ali Village Interchange.

…the inhabitants treated us with unusual kindness. They made us all welcome, and they lit a huge fire because it had started to rain and the weather was cold.— Acts 28:2
