Pope  Francis  in  Ireland


Pope Francis will attend & speak at the Festival of Families event in Croke Park on the evening of Saturday 25th August. Every parish in Ireland is invited to nominate a family to attend. This event is not a Mass but is a (music) festival style celebration of family life as lived and experienced in many parts of the world.


The Pope will celebrate Mass in the Phoenix Park on Sunday 26th August, at 3.00pm. Tickets for this event will be freely available online in mid-June. (Tickets are FREE but have to be pre-booked.)  If you’re not sure how to do this, ask a young neighbour or family member.

Next weekend,16/17 June, a  special  Collection  to help meet the costs of the Papal Visit will be held in all parishes throughout Ireland. Please be as generous as you can – by adding extra to your weekly envelope or to the baskets at the Offertory.
