    Finding a quiet place to perform their religious activities was one among the major concerns of the Christian expats of Dubai during the past. Special thanks to the great late Sheikh Rashid Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister United Arab Emirates (UAE), who realized the problems of the minorities of his country and donated spacious land in 1966 for the purpose of building a Church. The famous Priest Rev. Fr. Eusebius and his skilled team headed the project and the church was constructed within just one year. His Highness the late Sheikh Rashid himself inaugurated this amazing institution with the name of St. Mary's Catholic Church on April 7, 1967.
