All Filipinos in Ireland are invited to attend a Special Mass for the Filipino Community and for the victims of Typhoon Yolanda on Sunday, November 17, 2013, in St. Mary’s Pro-Cathedral Church at 6.30pm. Archbishop of Dublin, Diarmuid Martin, will preside the Mass. 

According to the press release of the Archdiocese of Dublin, Archbishop Martin “said many members of the Filipino community here in Dublin are anxiously awaiting news of loved ones as the scale of the damage caused by the natural disaster continues to unfold. He invited all who wished to join with him in prayer on Sunday evening.”

“Pope Francis prayed for the victims of the typhoon after the Sunday Angelus in St Peter’s Square. He firstly called for silent prayer, and then led the faithful in a recitation of the Hail Mary. Furthermore, he urged those present to help their brothers and sisters in the Philippines concretely, as well as through prayer.” 

Bilang ating pasasalamat sa lahat ng tulong na ating natatanggap sa mga mamamayan ng Ireland, tayo po’y makibahagi sa banal na misang ito.

Thank you.
