The Franciscan Sisters of the Renewal are inviting people to join them to Light the Fire on the Hill of Slane on Saint Patrick’s Day 2016. The Sisters are asking people to join them at the very spot where Saint Patrick lit the Easter Fire where prayers will be offered for Ireland. Bishop Michael Smith will celebrate Mass at 5.30pm followed by Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

All are welcome. As this is an outdoor event, people are being asked to dress for the weather conditions of the day.

Directions: Slane Village – N2 between Navan and Drogheda.

For more information or to volunteer to help out at the event please contact the Franciscan Sisters on (041) 983 0441.
