St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Armagh becomes a blaze of colour celebrating The Family of Sports!

On Sunday evening, it was a case of standing room only in St Patrick’s Cathedral, Armagh as people gathered from throughout the Parish to celebrate “The Family of Sports”. The event had been organised over the last number of weeks as part of the Parish’s preparations for The World Meeting of Families 2018. All sporting clubs, organisations and schools in the parish were well represented on the evening. People were asked to wear sporting colours or jerseys, which added to the colour and joy of the occasion.



The special Icon which has been commissioned in preparation for the World Meeting of Families 2018 will be in the Cathedral from Monday 9 – Wednesday 11 October and people will have an opportunity to venerate it and pray before it.

It will be present for the special celebration “The Joy of Love” on the evening of Tuesday 10 October when all are invited to come along for a special Evening Prayer at 7pm and on the evening, we will learn the official hymn for the WMOF, “A Joy for all the earth”.


A special Triduum of Prayer will take place in St Patrick’s Cathedral, Armagh from Wednesday 11 – Friday 13 October to mark the close of this centenary year of the first apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima.





Members of the World Apostolate of Fatima will be present for the three days and on each of the days, Mass will be celebrated in the Cathedral at 10am and 7.30pm and the Rosary will be prayed on each of the evenings at 7pm. A visiting preacher will join on the Wednesday and Thursday evenings and Archbishop Eamon Martin will close the Triduum on the Friday evening and during that Mass, a special statue of Our Lady of Fatima will be crowned to mark this Jubilee Year.
