Easter Celebrations in Shannon Parish

img_0602The highlight of Holy week is the Easter Vigil. This year it was celebrated in SS. John & Paul Church at 9pm on Holy Saturday. All the priests of the parish concelebrated and Fr Tom presided. The Blessing of the Easter fire took place in the Jubilee Garden of SS John & Paul Church. The Senior Choir of the Church, under the direction of Mary Lahiff, enhanced the celebration with beautiful music and singing.

As the Dawn broke in Shannon on Easter Sunday hundreds of people gathered in the cold but beautiful morning in Illaunmanagh Cemetery for the celebration of Dawn Easter Mass. Fr Arnold celebrated the Eucharist, assisted by the priests of the parish. The Folk Group provided the music and singing and thanks to Christy Collins and Colin Fogarty for the Easter Fire.

Our thanks to Michelle Justice and Joe Buckley for the photos.
