Finishing touches for tomorrow
The sun is shining and all is set for the openair Mass in Mullingar to mark the opening of the International Eucharistic Congress on the Feast of Corpus Christi on Sunday 10 June 2012 at 11.00am.
The music will be provided by Mullingar Town Band with the Cathedral Choir, Choristers and the newly formed Cathedral Gospel Choir.
We appreciate the many helping hands who have helped us to get ready for this celebration.
Following the Mass, a Corpus Christi procession will take place through the streets of Mullingar, concluding with Benediction at the steps of the Cathedral.
We encourage as many parishioners as possible, especially families, to join us for this unique event.
During the week ahead, over 350 people from Mullingar will attend the various events for the International Eucharistic Congress in the RDS and Croke Park.
