Cork Legionaries visit homes in Cathedral parish in ‘Year of Faith’ Initiative’

Legionaries gather for prayer before they begin their house-to-house visitation.

Legionaries gather for prayer before they begin their house-to-house visitation.

For the past two weeks Legionaries from around the Dioceses of Cork and Ross have gathered each weekday to do house-to-house visitation in the Cathedral parish of Saint Mary and Saint Anne. The parish boundaries encompass some of the oldest and narrowest streets in the city of Cork. The initiative, organised by the priests of the parish, is in response to Pope (Emeritus) Benedict’s appeal, when he launched the ‘Year of Faith’, in 2012, that each parish community would reach out again to those who have lapsed or strayed away from the Catholic faith. The parish community has prayed earnestly and the Legionaries have done the hard slog – its now left to the Lord to touch each heart of those visited that they would see that life is diminished once we place ourselves outside our Father’s House.
