At the beginning of June, we had a post about the fact that June is dedicated as the month of the Sacred Heart. This year (as Easter has fallen so early), the Feast of the Sacred Heart is falling on July 1st.
In preparation for the feast, a Novena to the Sacred Heart is taking place in Robertstown Church, in the parish of Shanagolden-Foynes-Robertstown (on the N69 between Askeaton and Foynes) from June 23rd to July 1st 2011.
The Novena is nightly at 8pm and the preachers during the Novena are:
- Fr Alphonsus Cullinan, Limerick Institute of Technology
- Fr Noel Kirwin, Limerick Diocesan Pastoral Centre
- Ms Noirin Lynch, Pastoral Co-ordinator, Limerick Diocese
Novena will include
- Corpus Christi procession after 8pm Mass Saturday June 25th
- Mass in Robertstown cemetery on Sunday 26th June at 10.30am
- Blessing of the Sick - Thursday 30th June
- Eucharistic Adoration - Thursday 30th June from 9pm to midnight
