The Clonfert Diocesan Office has announced that Tuesday next, May 31st, will be a Historic Day for Shrine of Our Lady of Clonfert
On Tuesday Bishop Michael Duignan will travel to the Shrine to bless the newly renovated Church and consecrate the new Altar at 7.30 pm Mass. In recognition of the importance of the Shrine as a pilgrimage centre for so many, he will also formally approve Statutes for the Shrine and sign a Decree to elevate the Shrine of Our Lady of Clonfert to the status of a recognised Shrine of Diocesan right. In the same act, Father Declan McInerney P.P. will be appointed the Shrine’s first Rector.
We turn our hearts and minds to Our Lady of Clonfert in these days invoking her intercession so that these new initiatives might bear much spiritual fruit.
