'Rosary on the Coast for Life & Faith' Westport, Ireland
Location: Bertra Beach - Westport, Ireland Catholics in Ireland planned a mass-rosary recital around over 300 points of the country’s coastline as next year’s abortion referendum approaches. The ‘Rosary on the Coast for Life and Faith’ will took place on Sunday, November 26, the feast of 'Christ the King'. Organisers take inspiration from the recent Rosary at the Borders in Poland, and a similar event in Italy. “Our island is in the midst of a catastrophic loss of Catholic faith especially among the young,” the organisers say on their Facebook page. “Ireland, North and South, is facing an immediate threat to the protection of our unborn babies.” “Ireland was the first country in the world to be consecrated to Christ the King,” the organizers note. “The feast is extremely important. Acknowledging Christ as King has relevance for the spiritual, social, cultural, legal and political life of Ireland.” The rosary event is also meant to underscore the importance of faith among Ireland’s citizens, particularly the young. “Our island is in the midst of a catastrophic loss of Catholic faith especially among the young,” the event’s organizers say. “Ireland, North and South, is facing an immediate threat to the protection of our unborn babies.”

ROSARY AROUND THE IRISH COAST FOR LIFE AND FAITH - 26.11.17
ROSARY AROUND THE IRISH COAST FOR LIFE AND FAITH - 26.11.17 Last weekend at Strandhill Co Sligo, Sancta Familia attended one of the many hundreds of gatherings around the Irish Coast to pray the Rosary for a renewed defence of life in Ireland. The hardy crowd of 150 were testament to the quiet resilient faith of many in Ireland who wish to save the 8th ammendment of the Irish Constitution giving protection to the unborn child. Like the coast at Strandhill which was battered by wind and storms, the faithful Catholics of Ireland have suffered in recent years. We hope that this national act of prayer will be the turning point for a greater love of the faith and life in Ireland.
