St Patrick’s Day 2008
We are all aware that St Patrick’s Day falls on Monday of Holy Week. Because of the solemnity of the week no celebrations of feasts are permitted. The decision of the Bishop’s Conference has been to bring forward the religious celebration of the Feast to Saturday 15th.
On this day we will have a special Mass of the Feast of St Patrick at 10.00 which will be in Irish. All organisations and groups who participate in the celebration of the Feast are invited. On Monday 17th the civic celebration of the feast will go ahead as usual.
On this day Masses will be at the usual Sunday times, ie 8.30am, 10.00am, 11.30am & 1.00pm. These Masses will be of the day for Holy Week.
