Limerick's Solemn Novena - 17th to 25th June 2011
This year Limerick's Solemn Novena to Our Lady of Perpetual Help is being held at Mt St Alphonsus Church from 17th to 25th June 2011 inclusive.
"The theme for the Solemn Novena this year is "Eucharist: Food for Life". Each day will focus on a different moment in the celebration of the Eucharist, looking in depth at its meaning and significance. It is an opportunity for us, in the build up to the Eucharistic Congress, to think more deeply about the Mass and its implications for us as individuals and as a community, how it shapes our lives and relationship with God and one another. It is a chance to deepen or reawaken our sense of awe and wonder at the amazing event that takes place every time we gather round the Lord's table."
