OLMC
As a Carmelite Family we are making our own preparations for the World Meeting of Families 2018. We are blessed to have a Family of Saints associated with the Carmelites: Saints Louis and Zélie Martin and their youngest daughter, Saint Thérèse of Lisieux. The Martin Family embody what is best in family life and offer a wonderful example of what a family can become. Saints Louis and Zélie are two of the Patron Saints of this year’s World Meeting.

In conjunction with the organisers of the World Meeting of Families, we have arranged that Relics of Saints Louis, Zélie and Thérèse will come from Lisieux and be in Ireland for the World Meeting of Families. The organisers consider the presence of the Relics in the country to be an integral part of the Meeting. The Relics will be at the Opening Ceremony in the R.D.S., Dublin, on Tuesday, August 21, and they will also be in the sanctuary in the Phoenix Park for the Papal Mass on Sunday, August 26.


The relics will visit Whitefriar Street Church at the following times:

Tuesday August 7th
11.00am - 9.00 pm

Wednesday August 22nd
9.00am - 9.00pm

Solemn Vespers will be celebrated by Bishop Paul Horan, O.Carm., at 8.00pm and all are welcome.

Thursday August 23rd
9.00am - 3.30pm

Saturday September 8th
1.45pm - 7.00pm.

A Closing Mass to mark the end of the Visit to Ireland will be celebrated at 3.00pm and all are welcome.

Masses and Confessions are as normal throughout these special days.
