Follow the Icon Our Mother of Perpetual Help
Pilgrimage to Cathedrals of Ireland, Celebrating 150 Years with the Redemptorists 1866-2016.
Blessed Pope Pius IX presented the Icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help to the Redemptorists for veneration in their newly-built Church of Sant’ Alfonso, Rome in December 1865. It was much in need of restoration so it was April 26th, 1866 before it was solemnly installed there. The Holy Father gave the Redemptorists a mandate: they were to promote devotion to Our Mother of Perpetual Help throughout the world. Just over a year later, the first copy arrived in Mount St. Alphonsus, Limerick.
The Icon is arriving to Ennis Cathedral Thursday 14th April.
