National Novena in honour of the Little Flower, Patroness of the Missions
23 September – 1 October 2012
Fr Maurice Kelleher SMA was responsible for the organisation of the SMA National Novena in honour of St Thérèse of Lisieux. Each evening those making the Novena attended Mass in the recently refurbished Chapel, dedicated to St Patrick and St Theresa. A variety of speakers, lay, religious and priests, gave a reflection / homily each evening which were very well appreciated.
