Angela Merici and the Family

As Pope Francis opens the Synod on the Family in Rome on Sunday 5th October we recall the founding vision of Angela Merici that women would be at the heart of the family bringing Christian values to bear in the life of every family and thereby into the wider society of her day in Italy.  With this in mind we ask her prayers and intercession as the Synod begins its discussions and discernment.

To mark this day which is also Rosary Sunday the sisters of the Blackrock community in Cork extend an invitation to people to join with them in praying the Rosary for the intention of the family on Sunday 5th October at 5:00pm in the Convent Chapel.
