CiNews:Our Lady’s Island pilgrimage under way

Below is an excerpt from an article by CiNews,

“The annual pilgrimage at Our Lady’s Island in County Wexford has got under way.

During the pilgrimage season, which runs until September 8, Mass will be celebrated outdoors at the historic religious site at 3:0 0pm and 8:00pm each day, while a team of priests are available to hear confessions after each Mass.

Some 2,000 people attended the opening of the pilgrimage season as the Bishop of Ferns, Dr Denis Brennan, led a procession around the island, which is set in a lake.  Our Lady’s Island has been a place of pilgrimage for centuries and has an interesting church ruin that leans at an angle more acute than the legendary Tower of Pisa.”
