Bishop Noel Treanor has announced that the Diocese of Down & Connor will close the month of May with a Triduum of Prayer to celebrate the feast of Pentecost. In the Christian tradition, Pentecost is known as the Birthday of the Church. Over these three days, prayers will be offered for the Family (the Domestic Church), our local Parishes and Pastoral Communities (the Local Church), and for the mission of all Christians in the world (the Universal Church). The Triduum will run from Friday 29 May until Sunday 31 May.

Bishop Treanor warmly invites everyone to join with him as he leads the prayers online via the webcam on www.churchservices.tv/stpeterscathedral, from St Peter’s Cathedral in Belfast. Each service will begin at 7.00pm and will last approximately 15 minutes.

Intentions may be sent by email to [email protected] and they will be placed in front of the altar and included in the prayers each evening. A booklet of the prayers being used in the Triduum can be requested using the email address above.
