Blessing of Ahiohill’s new Grotto on Aug 14th

Work on the graveyard extension at Ahiohill is nearing completion. The extension provides new and extra space for burials in the cemetery in the grounds of the Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The new Grotto to Our Lady is also finished – the statue is now installed.

The Grotto will be dedicated and the cemetery blessed at Mass to be celebrated there on the eve of the Feast of the Assumption of Our Lady.

The principal concelebrant at the Mass will be Bishop John Buckley on Sunday August 14th at 7pm.If the evening is fine, the Mass will be celebrated in the cemetery — if it’s wet, Mass will be in the church.

All welcome.
