Matt Talbot Sunday 3rd July. Each year the Sunday following the Feast of Corpus Christi is designated as Matt Talbot Sunday in the Archdiocese. This is a Sunday set aside for us to reflect, to pray and to focus our attention on the person and life of Matt Talbot. At this time when so many of our communities are affected by the scourge of alcohol and substance misuse, Matt is set before us as a model of temperance and a source of strength and support to all who suffer from addiction or additive behaviors. Suggested Prayers of Intercession and other relevant material will be sent to each parish in the coming week.

St Kevin’s, Harrington St: There will be a Corpus Christi procession on Sunday 26th June at 3.30 p.m. Weather permitting, the procession will go outdoors, and will end with Benediction. All are welcome to attend.
