Canonisation of Pope John Paul II Celebrations in Shannon Parish

April 27, 2014;

St. John PaulOn Sunday 27th April Shannon Parish will have a concelebrated Mass at 12.15pm in SS John & Paul Church Shannon to celebrate the Canonisation of Pope John Paul II.  Pope John Paul blessed the foundation stone of the Church during his Irish visit in 1979.

At 1.30pm the Polish community in the Killaloe Diocese will celebrate the Canonisation of Pope John Paul in SS John and Paul Church when Fr. Dariusz Plasek, Polish Chaplain to the Killaloe Diocese, will celebrate Mass in Polish.  There will be a prayer service in the Pope John Paul Jubilee garden in the grounds of the Church after Mass.

The Jubilee Garden was created in 2005 to celebrate the Silver Jubilee of SS. John & Paul Church and to honour the memory of Pope John Paul who died that year. The garden consists of an altar with the bust of John Paul and five stations where the five mysteries of Light which were created by Pope John Paul are marked.

To celebrate the beatification of St. John Paul, the parish produced a prayer card and a book marker with photographs of Pope John Paul taken in Shannon on 1st October 1979 by Shannon parishioner Padraig O’Reilly.

To celebrate the Canonisation, the parish is producing a car sticker with a photo of Pope John Paul blessing the people of Ireland as he boarded the plane at Shannon Airport at the end of his Irish visit. This photo is the last recorded photo of the Pope on Irish soil, blessing the people of Ireland. The sticker is being provided to parishioners and anybody who would like one as a Blessing of protection of St. John Paul when travelling .  As we know Pope John Paul travelled extensively and with his intercession, we ask his help to keep us safe. The sticker also encourages people to fly through Shannon Airport as St. John Paul did when here in Ireland. These are available free of charge.
