Dublin to Drogheda  Novena Prayer Walk
For the 4th year running, a group of friends are planning to walk from Dublin to Drogheda over nine days in a ‘Novena – Prayer- Walk’ which ends at St. Peter’s Church Drogheda for the official Mass in honour of St. Oliver Plunkett each year. This year our prayer walk takes place, between Saturday June 26th and Sunday July 4th. We pray through the intercession of our Our Lady and all our saints, but especially St. Plunkett and the beatified martyrs, to Our Lord as Divine Mercy.
The petitions for our walk this year again are:

(1): atonement for any abuse and for healing.
(2): for those in hardship or suffering in any way.
(3): for peace: an end to criminal and sectarian violence and conversion of hearts.

As in previous years, we hope to start day 5 of our walk from St. Patrick's Church Donabate from 6.30pm and arrive at St. MacCullin's Church at 8.30pm ish. 
We hope to start day 6 of our walk from outside St. MacCullin's Church at 6.30pm and to arrive at St. Patrick's Church Skerries at 8.30pm ish.

We would like to invite you and members of your congregation and friends to join us.
