Medjugorje nights

Twenty-five years of the local prayer group that have come together at the Rosminian House of Prayer at Glencomeragh every second Thursday to celebrate Our Lady’s Coming in Medjugorje will be celebrated next Thursday, November 14.

The celebration at the Rosminian House of Prayer begins at 8pm and will include Rosary, Confessions, Mass, adoration and prayers for healing.

The prayer group has been meeting since the second Thursday of November 1988 and during the intervening years many people have been greatly blessed and received gifts of peace, joy and hope, often in very difficult situations. Many of the group’s original members have since gone to their eternal reward.

All are welcome to the celebration, which will give thanks to all the blessings received over the past 25 years.
