A Special Guest
Welcome to Cardinal Joao Braz de Aviz, Prefect of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life.
His Eminence will preach at the Vigil Mass at the Cathedral of Christ the King on Saturday 12 July at 6.00pm. The Cardinal’s visit precedes his participation in the fourth centenary celebrations in honour of St Camillus in Killucan, Co. Westmeath.
Any members of the Brazilian community in Mullingar or further afield who would like to meet the Cardinal will be very welcome.
Bishop Michael Smith, who will celebrate the Vigil Mass, has invited members of various religious communities in the Diocese of Meath – priests, sisters and brothers – to meet Cardinal Braz de Aviv. In the context of the Cathedral’s Jubilee Year, Bishop Smith will recognise the contribution the Religious communities make to the life of the Church, not least of all in education and catechesis, pastoral outreach and prayer.
