Two weeks before Ash Wednesday 2014, begins a wonderful nine-week Novena in St Peter and Paul’s Church, Portlaoise.

This is an occasion of great blessing for the parish community to gather together in prayer and worship every Wednesday evening at 7.30pm for the celebration of Eucharist.

An important element to this Novena will be praying for personal petitions.

These petitions will be remembered and prayed for throughout the nine week Novena.

The parish are delighted each week to welcome excellent speakers who will speak words of hope and encouragement. Very soon in the parish church, petitions will be available for people to record their very personal requests.

The speakers are:

February 19

Fr Brian Darcy: A little bit of Religion.

February 26

Mark Pollock: Breaking through the barriers that paralysis and blindness have placed around him.

March 5

Brother Kevin Capuchin Day Centre: Feed the hungry.

March 12

Fr Peter McVerry SJ: Shelter the Homeless.

March 19

Ann Doyle: Life after the Newsroom.

March 26

Micky Harte: Sport, Life and Tragedy.

April 2

Sr Consilio: We are all in recovery.

Finbarr and Elma Walsh (parents of Donal Walsh): Keeping his Inspiration Alive.
