Parish Mission - “From Brokenness to Wholeness”

When:  Mar 25 – 27, 2015
Where: Our Lady of Lourdes, Sean McDermott Street Lower, Dublin 1, Ireland

Description: Matt Talbot Shrine is holding a special year of planned events to commemorate the 90th anniversary of his death. Matt was only 28 years old when he took the radical decision to turn away from a life of addiction and follow God's call. He is an example of what is possible in a world that needs this more than ever. 

A three day parish mission will be held in Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Sean McDermott St, D1 at 7PM on Mar 25th – 27th. The speakers will be Br Barry Butler, an Alexian Brother who has worked for many years with individuals and families suffering from illness and addictions and David Barbieri, a former former heroin addict and gang member who, for the last 18 years, has worked with Br Barry helping others to change their lives. Each session ends with prayers for healing. 

On Sunday March 29th at 2PM there will be a Walk of Remembrance from the Matt Talbot Memorial on Sean McDermott St to Our Lady of Lourdes Church. The walk will include prayer for all those lost to addiction, suicide and illness. This will be followed by mass celebrated by Fr Kieran McDermott at 3PM with Teen Spirit providing music ministry.
