Oblate Lourdes Novena 2009
February 2nd to 11th, at 10am and 8pm each day.
Mary Immaculate Church, Inchicore, Dublin 8
The Inchicore Lourdes Novena owes its inspiration to Fr William Ring OMI (1834-1919), who, in 1883, led the first large group of pilgrims from Britain and Ireland to visit Lourdes. Due largely to his faith, imagination and organizational ability, Inchicore quickly became a centre of Marian devotion.
Today, that devotion finds its clearest expressions in the annual pilgrimage to Lourdes, constant prayerful visits to the Grotto, and the annual Lourdes Novena.
