23 / 24 November – Eucharistic Adoration “FaithFest 2013”

To coincide with the end of the Year of Faith, the Eucharistic Adoration Committee has planned two major initiatives for all Adorers in the Diocese of Meath.

Entitled “FaithFest 2013”, the events bring together a mix of liturgy and prayer with talks on faith, particularly in relation to the Eucharist.

The Navan gathering will take place on Saturday 23 November 2013, commencing with Mass in St Oliver Plunkett Church at 10.00 am.  Refreshments and meeting will follow in Simonstown Clubhouse (just down the road from the Church) immediately after Mass.

The Mullingar gathering will take place on Sunday 24 November 2013, starting with Mass celebrated by Bishop Michael Smith in the Cathedral of Christ the King at 11.00am.  The programme continues after the Mass in the Parish Community Centre.
