Icon of the Holy Family in Navan ***Update

, , ,

We welcomed the Icon of the Holy Family as we prepare for the World Meeting of Families and for the visit of Pope Francis. The Icon of the Holy Family arrives at St. Mary’s Church on Tuesday and will be with us until Friday afternoon.

We rejoice in being chosen to host the icon, and we look forward to welcoming parishioners from parishes all around Co. Meath.

All are welcome to join the evening ceremony to pray for the success of the World Meeting of Families, and for the intentions of your families.
