Lough Derg recently hosted a group of young pilgrims from parishes near Cavan and Manorhamilton in the Diocese of Kilmore.
The pilgrimage group was led by Carina McGinnell, the new Youth Ministry leader in the Diocese of Kilmore. Carina and the group recently returned from World Youth Day in Krakow.
Father Robert McCabe was the Spiritual Director for the Lough Derg pilgrimage and he explored many of the themes of Mercy which Pope Francis focused on for World Youth Day.
The pilgrimage group walked part of the pilgrim path towards the island and then celebrated the living monastic heritage at Lough Derg through exploring themes of Mercy which Pope Francis used at last month’s World Youth Day in Kraków.
