Celebrating the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes
"The sick, the suffering and those in need of care should be at the centre of our attention, so that none of them feels forgotten".
This quotation is taken from Pope Benedict's Message for the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, which is a special day of prayer for the sick and those who care for them.
We pray in a particular way today for our parishioners and loved ones who are sick at this time.
Each year, many people from Mullingar make a pilgrimage to Our Lady's Shrine in Lourdes. A parish pilgrimage will be led in May 2011 by Fr Padraig McMahon. For further information, please contact Linda at Cathedral House (044 9348338).
