International Eucharistic Congress
We have been asked to have 48 hours Eucharistic adoration in each of our chapels. A monstrance which holds the Eucharist will visit each parish and we are asked to be generous hosts to Our Lord at this time. Please put your name on sheet on the bulletin board to indicate which hour you will be able to do. Men should opt for the night hours for security. This is one of the ways we welcome the congress to Ireland and in a concrete way to our parish.
