World Meeting of Families Icon Visit – Cashel & Emly

8th September 2017 - 18th September 2017

Visit of WMOF Icon to Cashel & Emly – 8th to 18th Sept 2017.  This specially commissioned WMOF 2018 icon of the Holy  Family was at the National Launch in Knock.  The icon will then travel to all dioceses in the country.  Since the icon is large and requires a transport team, it is recommended that it visit three locations in each diocese.  Therefore, the icon will visit the Archdiocese in accord with the following schedule:


8th – 11th Sept          Holycross Abbey to coincide with the Novena to Our Lady of Perpetual Help.

12th – 14th Sept      Emly beginning with the Feast of St Ailbe

15th – 18th Sept        Newport.
