Jubilee Year Door of Mercy Pilgrimage

The parishes of the Brendan Cluster of Killaloe Diocese (Birr, Kilcolman, Shinrone & Kinnity) made a Jubilee Year of Mercy Pilgrimage to Mt St Joseph Abbey this afternoon to walk through the Door of Mercy and to participate in a Liturgy incorporating the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  Over 150 members from the four parishes came on the pilgrimage. The liturgy was led by the Abbot, Fr Richard, assisted by priests of the parishes.  The theme of the liturgy was ‘Come to me, you who are burdened, and I will give you rest’ and to symbolise the letting go of burdens, after having received the sacrament of reconciliation, those attending were invited to place a candle on the cross.
