Outdoor Celebration of Mass and Eucharistic Procession
Date: Sunday 10 June, 2012
To mark the beginning of the Eucharistic Congress on Sunday 10 June, the Cathedral will “relocate” to Pearse Street for the celebration of Mass at 11am. We are very grateful to the County Council, Gardaí and others for helping with this plan. The music for the Mass will be provided by the Cathedral Choir, Mullingar Town Band and the newly formed Cathedral Gospel Choir. We will be asking the children in primary schools to join us for the Mass and to make flags at home or at school for the occasion. Following the Mass, which will be celebrated by Fr Padraig McMahon with Bishop Smith presiding, a procession of the Blessed Sacrament will make its way through the town, leading to the steps of the Cathedral where the Bishop will give Benediction. There will be no 12.30pm Mass on that day.
