Mallow parish hosted a very successful 24 hour prayer from 10am Tuesday 24th to 10am Wednesday 25th April 2018 in St Mary’s Church. This prayer space gave people the opportunity to pray at the various different interactive prayer spaces that were set up around the Church. The spaces included topics such as the Family Tree, Our Community of Mallow, God’s love, Homelessness, Reconciliation and Ireland. This was part of the Dioceses preparations for Young Adult for the World Meeting of Families which takes place in Dublin from 22nd – 26th August 2018. A sincere Thank You to the Pope John Paul II Award students from the Patrician Academy & St Mary’s Secondary School who invested so much time in preparing for this event. In organising this event we were guided and support by Theresa Cronin and Abagail Watson from Alpha Ireland. It was enlightening to see so many of our parishioners come and visit the prayer spaces.
