Fr Peter McVerry to speak to students in Holycross

Well known campaigner for the homeless Fr Peter McVerry will speak to students from secondary schools in and around Holycross on Tuesday next at two separate sessions.

The popular cleric will be in attendance at Holycross Abbey where he will address two congregations at 11:00am and 1:30pm.

While the Novena ended in Holycross on Friday and saw thousands attend the ancient place of worship each of the nine day from 7:00am until 11:00pm, there was no Youth Mass this year with the intention being to have Fr McVerry address the students.

However, the ceremonies are not just confined to students and anyone who wishes to attend would be very welcome, according to Fr Celsus Tierney CC in Holycross.

The ceremonies will be celebrated in the marquee and Fr McVerry's arrival in Holycross is eagerly anticipated.
