Feast of the Immaculate Conception – Saturday, 8 December

Marian Shrine, Kildysart

Marian Shrine, Kildysart

Saturday  8 December is the feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

It is a Holy Day of Obligation and Mass for the feast will be celebrated in our pastoral area on:

  • Ballycorick- 7pm Friday
  • Cranny – 7pm Friday
  • Labasheeda-8pm Friday
  • Coolmeen – 9am, Saturday
  • Kildysart- 10.30am, Saturday
  • Lissycasey- 11am,  Saturday
  • Kilmurry McMahon – 11am, Saturday

The feast of the Immaculate Conception celebrates our belief that Mary was conceived without original sin so that she could become the mother of Christ, our saviour. This blessing gave Our Lady the grace she needed to enable her to say ‘yes’ to the invitation conveyed to her by the Angel Gabriel that she would give birth to Christ, the Son of God and son of Mary.

Today’s feast reminds us that the Lord always gives us the help and grace that we need in our lives so that we may overcome the challenges we face in life and embrace the opportunities.
