Praying the Rosary for the Preservation of Life and Faith in Ireland

Below is a message from Coastal Rosary Ireland announcing that on Sunday, March 18, 2018, at 2:30 pm, there will be gatherings at Mass Rocks to pray the Holy Rosary for the preservation of life & faith in Ireland. More information can be found here on Facebook.

From the Papal Cross in Phoenix Park, Dublin, Pope John Paul II spoke of Ireland’s devotion to the Mass and Holy Eucharist recalling “Mass rocks in the glens and forests” where Mass was celebrated “by hunted priests… for the Irish, it was always the Mass that mattered.

Theme for 2018 Summer Camps

The theme for this year’s Summer Camps will be True Devotion to Our Lady according to St Louis Marie de Montfort. Children on the camps will learn how simple it is to devote oneself to Jesus through Mary, and how incomparably beneficial for both this life and the next.

The theme for the 2017 camps was “The Reformation” and for 2016 was “Fatima”.

Baptism of Our Lord

“Tribus miráculis ornatum diem sanctum cólimus:
hódie stella Magos duxit ad præsépium:
hódie vinum ex aqua factum est ad núptias:
hódie in Iordáne a Ioánne Christus baptizári vóluit,
ut salváret nos, allelúia.”

May God bless our new website!
