Ploughing a Prayerful Path

Kildare & Leighlin at the Ploughing Championship 2022, Block 2: Row 18, Stand 291

‘Ploughing a Prayerful Path’ & Irelands Favourite Hymn

The theme, ‘Ploughing a Prayerful Path’, echoes the recent synodal discussions throughout the world to advise Pope Francis on a way forward for the Catholic Church.

‘Ireland’s Favourite Hymn’ is one of several initiatives being taken by the diocese during the Ploughing Championship. Visitors to the stand will also be invited to help create a woollen mural depicting the logo of the synod.

Stand 291 will highlight some ancient ritual customs such as the making of St. Brigid’s Crosses and the distribution of Blessed Salt. There will be a Prayer Wall for petitions, as well as a quiet space for private prayer in the midst of the hectic Ploughing Championships. We look forward to seeing you there!
