First Eucharistic Adoration Assembly To Be Held In Mullingar

The Mullingar Parish Adoration Committee has planned a Eucharistic Assembly to take place in Bloomfield Hotel, Mullingar on Saturday 14 October for people who take part in Eucharistic Adoration in parishes across Westmeath.

A similar event was very successfully hosted in Tullamore last June and another is proposed for Navan later this year.

It is estimated that over 1,000 people spend an hour in quiet prayer every week before the Blessed Sacrament in Westmeath and it is hoped that the Eucharistic Assembly will affirm and spiritually nourish them in their prayer life.

Bishop Michael Smith will attended, as well as priests, religious and lay people from parishes in Westmeath. The day will include prayer times, talks, reflections, testimonies, music and it will conclude with the celebration of Mass.

“I am very excited that Mullingar parish will host this unique gathering in our locality”, the chaplain to Eucharistic Adoration Fr Joseph Naikarakudy said. “It is inspiring to see the dedication of parishioners who spend a “holy hour” before the Blessed Sacrament each week in the Cathedral and I know this is replicated throughout Westmeath. These people pray for the intentions of everyone, especially for the sick, for families facing difficulties and for vocations. This Assembly gives us a chance to affirm their dedication and, I hope, to encourage new people to join them in this beautiful devotion”. 

Fr Naikarakudy repeated a recent quotation from Pope Francis who said that “spending time in Eucharistic adoration is the secret to knowing the Lord. We cannot truly know the Lord without being in the habit of adoring, of adoring in silence.”

The Eucharistic Adoration Assembly will begin in Bloomfield Hotel on Saturday 14 October at 9.30am and end at 4.30pm.
