Over two hundred religious sisters, brothers and priests answered the bishop’s invitation to a prayer service here at the Cathedral, last weekend, to celebrate the Worldwide Day for Consecrated life. Bishop Gavin said that “Religious are and must be men and women of prayer, who can lead others into prayer.” Bishop Gavin blessed candles at the special service and each community was invited to bring back a candle to their homes.

The singing at the Cathedral was led by the Presentation Choir, Ballyphehane. After the service Bishop Gavin greeted all those present and refreshments were served in the Visitor Centre of the Cathedral.
