Lenten Charity 2019

Posted on 09. Jun, 2019 by in Banner, Carousel

On Sunday 9th June, the feast of Pentecost, our Rector, Msgr Ciarán O’Carroll announced the proceeds of our Lenten Charity Collection. The College chose two charities this year: Trócaire, which is the Irish Bishops’ Conference development organisation, and ACERO (Assyrian Church of the East Relief Organisation).

The total amount raised was €2,650 which will be equally divided between the chosen charities.

This was achieved in a number of ways: contributions from all residents of the College, from the Sunday congregation, through raffles at the St Patrick’s Day celebrations, and through our “Fasting Friday” initiative throughout Lent. We are grateful to everyone who supported these worthy causes!

On the 1st of May, Memorial of St Joseph the Worker, and the festa del lavoro here in Italy, the Irish College community hosted approximately four hundred guests as well as volunteers for Mass followed by lunch. Fr Roberto Cherubini, a member of the Comunità di Sant’Egidio, and a friend of the Irish College over many years, was the chief celebrant of the Mass.

This time of prayer and shared meal has become a well-established annual occasion on the Irish College Calendar. It is an opportunity for us, seminarians and priests, to minister alongside the members of the Comunità di Sant’Egidio here in Rome.

All of the Irish seminarians at the College complete at least one pastoral placement with the Comunità during their time of formation in the city.
