A time of grace

CORMAC – The sun shone brightly on the faithful as they gathered for the 79th annual pilgrimage at St Ann’s Catholic Church in Cormac, on Sunday.

At the 11am Mass, the faithful were welcomed by Father Kenneth O’Brien, parish priest for Cormac, Eganville and Pikwakanagan.

The homily was given by the Most Reverend Michael Mulhall, the Bishop of Pembroke Diocese.

The bishop began with thanks to all the volunteers who helped prepare for the day under the guidance of Father O’Brien.

“The pilgrimage is a time of grace for all of ourselves, for our diocese and for all those who have travelled from outside. A word of thanks to all those who helped organize this event because that preparation time which is an extended time goes into this moment which is so precious for all of us. There’s a lot of work behind the scenes, a lot of dedication of many people over many, many years,” Mulhall said.
