Visiting Our Lady at the Grotto of Lourdes
Some of the group from our parish who travelled on pilgrimage to Lourdes last week
A group of about 20 pilgrims from our parish travelled to Lourdes on the Diocesan Pilgrimage last week (June 16th – 21st). More than 750 pilgrims in total travelled from the various parishes of the Archdiocese including the sick, pilgrims, medical staff, clergy, youth group and adult helpers. The general concensus was that this was a very spiritual and enjoyable few days at the grotto of Our Lady. Already most are planning a return visit for the 40th anniversary of our diocesan pilgrimage to Lourdes. A sincere word of thanks to all who contributed to our local Lourdes fund. Your generosity is much appreciated.

It was a momentous occasion for the boys; using the same dressing-rooms as many of their heroes and getting to play on the pitch in Semple Stadium, An achievement many hurlers only get to dream about. Well done to the boys and all who helped in any way to get them to the County Final. Everyone on the panel gave of their all on the day. They did themselves, their school, their families and their parish proud on the day. We wish them all well and hope to see them all on the pitch in Semple Stadium in the not too distant future. Also, congratulations and good wishes to Jack Hogan and Sean Kenny, who have been chosen to represent St. Patrick’s in the Mini 7’s match to be played at half-time of the All-Ireland Semi Final. Enjoy the day boys agus go n-éirí an t-adh libh.
