The 33 day Consecration Novena to the Immaculate Heart of Mary which began in our parish with Rosary and Benediction at 5.00pm Sunday (5th November) in St Columb’s church concluded on Friday 8th December on the feast of the Immaculate Conception
Those who were participating in the retreat were invited by Fr Malachy, after the 7:30pm mass in St Columb’s church, to gather at the side altar where the consecration was made as a group before the Blessed Sacrament.
Afterwards a short video by Fr Gaitley, discussing on how your consecration should be lived out, was shown in the conference room of the parochial house
Some of those who completed the retreat and attended the video presentation on how to live out their Marian consecration
