Mercy Day September 24th, 2018

September 24, 2018

 

Today we honour Mercy Day and this year we are delighted to be joining with our neighbours, St Joseph's SS to celebrate with a Mass in the Church of the Holy Rosary at 12 pm.  

 

Mercy Day remembers the opening of the first 'House of Mercy' on this date in  1827 on Baggot Street in Dublin.
