Thursday August 15th is the Feast of the Assumption of Our Lady in Heaven. It is a holy day of obligation – meaning it is one of the special weekdays during the year when Catholics participate in the Eucharist at Mass.
August 15th is known in many parts of Ireland as “Lady Day” and is a day when many people attend centuries old devotions and prayer services at shrines to Our Lady and at holy wells.
This year also marks the 25th anniversary of the dedication of the Grotto to Our Lady of Lourdes which adorns the avenue into Enniskeane Church. To mark the Silver Jubilee of the Grotto, rosary will be prayed at the Grotto at 7pm on Thurs 15th. (Rosary has been prayed faithfully every Sunday eve for the past 25 years at the Grotto.) Mass for the holy day will be offered in the church at 7.30pm and will be followed by Benediction with the Blessed Sacrament. All welcome.
