This year’s Tara-Slane pilgrimage walk takes place on Saturday 31 August next. Many Irish families have walked up Croagh Patrick on Reek Sunday, walked barefoot at St Patrick’s Purgatory on Lough Derg or have travelled along the Camino de Santiago to Compostela.
Our annual Tara-Slane pilgrimage walk allows us to connect with the faith of our nearest neighbours and parishes back to the time of St Patrick.
“Going on pilgrimage without a change of heart of heart brings little reward from God. For it is by practicing virtue and not be mere motion of the feet that we are brought to Heaven” (fifth century Book of Lismore)
Registration Forms are now available from the Sacristies or from the Parish Office.
In order to prepare our Pilgrim Passports, we ask you to return the completed form with your pilgrimage fee not later than 5:00pm on Thursday 29 August.
