Congress Parish Mass

Below are some photos from our parish celebration of the International Eucharistic Congress, where we welcomed especially our schoolchildren and parents. The last time the Congress was in Ireland was in 1932, exactly 80 years ago. Some people who were at school then were at the Congress Mass and they still have happy memories of it. We hope that by having our Congress Mass here in Harold’s Cross our children will also have happy memories, when they are old, of the time they celebrated the Congress in 2012.

Thanks to our parish committee who organised the Mass, with great cooperation from our three schools. And a big thank you to Fr Michael Drumm, Chair of the Catholic Schools Partnership, for coming to be with us. We ask God to bless him as he guides and safeguards Catholic school education in the years to come.
