Franciscan church in Killarney

Celebrating the Gift of Creation!

Join us for a Free Concert in Killarney Franciscan Church, Friday 15th September at 7.00pm.

The concert will highlight the need to nurture all of creation.

The Irish Franciscans have commissioned a new composition of the Canticle of Creation. The Canticle is the hymn of praise written by St Francis that inspired Pope Francis in his encyclical Laudato si

The composer of the new composition is Vincent Kennedy and the concert will be performed by Vincent and Marina Cassidy (harp and vocals).

The concert, the first of a series in friaries around the country, is a thank you to all the people who have generously supported the ministry of the Franciscans at local and national levels.

Future dates for the concert in our friaries are:  Cork – Thursday 5 October. Galway – Thursday 19 October. Rossnowlagh – Sunday 22 October. Athlone – Friday 10 November. Ennis – Thursday 16 November. Clonmel – Thursday 14 December.

We continue to invite Franciscan-hearted people to join us in creating a hope-filled world.

Women and men who will work with us to “bring joy where there is sadness, hope where there is despair, faith where there is doubt”.
