Happy St Patrick’s Day!
Don’t forget the Diocesan celebrations in Downpatrick. Everyone welcome.
The Diocese of Down and Dromore is delighted to announce that Simon Guillebaud will speak on the theme, Radical Discipleship, Radical Mission at the St Patrick’s Day Festival Service on Thursday 17 March.
Simon is the founder and International Director of the Great Lakes Outreach which is working to bring transformation to the people of Burundi in Central Africa. The author of several books, Simon has a large social media following and shares frequently on challenging and radical topics.
Our St Patrick’s Day celebrations will follow a similar pattern to previous years but instead of lunch in the marquee, we will be providing a complimentary ‘Picnic in the Pew’ so please plan to stay around after the Festival Service!
- 9.15 am Holy Communion at Saul Church
- 10.15 am Prayer Pilgrimage to Down Cathedral
- 11.45 am Festival Service at Down Cathedral
The service will be followed by the wreath laying at St Patrick’s grave and a complimentary ‘Picnic in the Pew’. Tea and coffee will be provided.
