The Bell will reflect the invitation to faith, prayer, reflection and mission, which has always been important to the Christian tradition and is no less important today. The Bell is at present on Pilgrimage to every diocese in Ireland and will be coming to Ss. Peter & Paul’s Church on Thursday 2nd June. There will be a prayer service with benediction on Thursday at 7.30pm. On Friday morning at 11am, all are welcome to a prayer service involving the Confirmandi.
