Diocesan Notices: 1st July 2011

Posted 1st July 2011 in Diocesan Notices

From the Dublin Diocesan Noticeboard.

Matt Talbot Sunday 3rd July. Each year the Sunday following the Feast of Corpus Christi is designated as Matt Talbot Sunday in the Dublin diocese. 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 addictive behaviors. As part of the celebration a Mass will take place at the shrine of the Venerable Matt Talbot in Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Sean Mc Dermott Street on Sunday 3rd July at 3pm. All are welcome.

This is a week-long programme for choir members, leaders and musicians from all over Ireland. A special 30th year anniversary concert will be held in camp on Saturday 20th August at 8pm.
