Happy Feast Day – 3rd May

parishes of booterstown and mount merrion

Happy Feast Day to our ecumenical neighbours: The Feast day of St. Philip and St. James, the apostles, is celebrated on Monday, 3rd May. St. Philip asked “to see” and, having seen, he tells the good news to others. He was born at Bethsaida.

St. James, the son of Alphaeus and a cousin of the Lord, ruled the Church at Jerusalem, wrote an Epistle, and led a life of penance. He converted many of the people of Jerusalem to the faith and was martyred in the year 62.

We extend our warm wishes to Rev. Gillian Wharton and the parishioners in our neighbouring parish of St. Philip and St. James, Cross Avenue as they celebrate the feast day of their church today.

Monday, 3rd May is a public holiday. Our mass at 10:00 am will be celebrated as usual on the webcam.
