Rathvilly/Kiltegan Parish Novena

16th – 24th May 2015

St. Patrick’s Church, Rathvilly at 7.30 p.m. each night.

Please join us in Prayer

The Solemn Novena in Rathvilly is for the whole family and community, young and old – for those who believe and those who doubt – for those who are rejoicing and those who are struggling – for those who hope and those who despair.

Each person comes to the Novena with their own special intentions ranging from the routine pressures of life to the heartbreaking. Petitions can be placed in special boxes in St. Patrick’s Church, Rathvilly.
