Bishop Brendan Leahy will say the "Our Father" in response to Pope Francis' call at 11am and then at 12 noon will then join with bishops and priests from all over Ireland in consecrating the people of Ireland to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for strength and protection from the Coronavirus, COVID-19
Wednesday 25th March at 11am
Bishop Brendan Leahy will gather with Church of Ireland Bishop of the Diocese of Limerick, Kenneth Kearon, at the Redemptorist Church, South Circular Road, Limerick to dedicate the Lord’s Prayer in response to Pope Francis’ call.
The ‘Lord’s Prayer’ will be invoked like never before in a single moment when people across the Diocese of Limerick will join as one with others across the world in a global Our Father at 11a.m.
Though Bishops Leahy and Kearon - who have asked that the latest government notice yesterday on physical distancing is adhered to - will be on their own in the Church, the moment of prayer will be carried live on the Redemptorist Church webcam https://www.redemptoristslimerick.ie/web-cam/
Wednesday 25th March at 12 noon
Bishop Leahy will lead midday prayers from the Redemptorist Church as a special Novena since St. Patrick’s Day concludes. The faithful is invited to join from their home, again via webcam, to participate in this Act of Consecration during these unprecedented and worrying days for us all.
