Below is a report based on an email from Fr Rene Esoy SSS. In my previous post I said that the prayer rally would be at the Blessed Sacrament Chapel in the centre of Dublin, where Father Rene is assigned. But it was held in a different place in the suburbs. I will post photos when I receive them.
Just to let you know that we had a wonderful community prayer this morning here in Dublin in order to pray for Fr Sinnot's release from his kidnappers. It went well. It was held in front of the Church of St Mark in Springfield, Tallaght, Dublin. We started around 11.30 a.m.
Representatives from different Filipino organizations in Dublin were present. The South Dublin Filipino Association (SDFA) made this event possible.
Opening Prayer: Fr Pat O'Connell CSSR
Opening Song: Loving and Forgiving led by Anima Christi Choir
Opening Remarks: Jonathan Joaquin, SDFA President
Ambassador Ariel Y. Abadilla
Fr Pat Raleigh, representing the Columban missionaries
Closing Remarks: Augusto Ras, Anima Christi Choir President
Closing Prayer: Fr Rene Esoy SSS
Closing Song: Let there Be Peace on Earth
Before I said the closing prayer, I told the Filipinos present that
you are very grateful to them for organizing this prayer for Fr Sinnott.
