Pope Benedict XVI

"Beauty... is not mere decoration, but rather an essential element of the liturgical action, since it is an attribute of God Himself and His revelation."
(Pope Benedict XVI, Sacramentum Caritatis, 35)

Sung Mass Wednesday 11-July-2012 at 7:30pm
Feast of St Oliver Plunkett, Bishop & Martyr

It has been 421 years since the martyrdom of St. Oliver Plunkett at Tyburn on the 1st of July 1681 (in the Julian calendar). His feast is celebrated on the 11th of July in the Roman calendar, which is the date of his martyrdom under the Gregorian calendar which was of course only adopted in England in 1752. He was also the last Catholic martyr to die in England.

To celebrate the 92st anniversary of the beatification of St. Oliver Plunkett and in thanks-giving for the past years work in Kilkenny, under his patronage, there will be veneration of a 1st Class relic of St. Oliver Plunkett after the Sung Mass on Wednesday 11th July

Celebrant: Rev. Thomas O'Toole CC
