DERRY DIOCESAN SOCIETY

The 10.00 am Mass on Tuesday June 2 will be offered for the deceased members of the Derry Diuocesan Society. This Mass will be broadcast from St Mary’s Coolcalm.

FAN THE FLAME MASS 2020

Thursday 4 June was to be the date for the annual Fan the Flame Mass, where we come together to celebrate all of the young people in our diocese who have received the Sacrament of Confirmation and who are preparing to move to the next stage of their education. Unfortunately, that will not be possible this year. We do hope that these young people will experience the full Fan the Flame in the future as it is such a joy-filled day for all of us.

To mark the end of their primary education, Bishop McKeown will celebrate Mass in Saint Eugene’s Cathedral for them at 10.00 am on Thursday June 4 via the webcam. www.steugenescathedral.com/
